In this tutorial, I am going to show you step-by-step EXACTLY how you can make Bible verse printables quickly and easily – even if you aren’t a computer genius.

Are you ready to create an amazing Bible verse printable?

1. Open the online program called Canva (Click Here to open this program.)

2. Sign up for Canva

(Note: I am in no way affiliated with Canva. I recommend this program simply because it is so easy to use.)

If you have used Canva before, skip to step 3. If you have never used Canva before, this is what you will see.

Canva is completely free, so go ahead and sign up in whatever way you feel most comfortable. I signed up with my email and password. Canva requires you to sign up so that you go back into your designs later on and still have access to them.

After you sign up, you will see this:

I use the personal edition.

After you have selected personal, Canva will show you a brief (20 second) demo. Watch the demo. When it is finished, you will see this screen:

That’s all!

There are lots of other cool things that you can do with Canva, and once you use it you will want to experiment with it.

If you need to create a Bible verse printable FAST, though, this is all you need to know! Creating a Bible verse printable with Canva is super easy. If you are a fast typist, it will probably take you less time than writing it out by hand.

  1. I just want to thank you for the many WONDERFUL resources. Your heart for the children and for the Lord is evident. I am so blessed by your gifts. Even the tutorial of Canva was a great resource to have. Might want to update it so it looks more like the current version, but it’s great!

    Thank you again, and God bless you!

  2. That is very nice of you to share your secrets. I get a lot of tips here on how to make things more creative and interesting and make things more personalized!
    Many thanks and God’s abundance in your ministry.


    1. Ellen, about two weeks after I published this, Canva changed its appearance slightly. Hopefully, the changes are minor enough that this post still makes sense. Thanks for your encouragement. May God bless you!

  3. To bolster your day, please know that you and this post are an answer to a two month long prayer! I am trying to help our daughter “hide God’s Word in her heart”. She does extremely well if the bible verses are printed out, one per page, and has an area she can color. I am computer challenged so I greatly appreciate the complete step by step directions, WITH pictures of what I should see when I click on a particular area or link. Thank you so very much! Now we can both get more of God’s word in and around our house!

    1. Thank you so much for your encouragement, Wendy. Your comment made my day! I hope and pray that this will be a blessing to you and your daughter as you seek to memorize God’s Word together. May God bless you.
