I love to do crafts and have cute handouts and activities for church (and school, and friends, and - well you get the idea). I don't consider myself creative, but often use the help of others' talents. I decided to share what I'm doing for others just like me. It may be a link to where I found something or it might even be something *I* created. Right now I work as a paraprofessional at my kids' elementary - in special ed (autism). I started creating items for my 3rd graders this year and can't wait to share them with you. I am the 1st counselor in YW (first time in YW is this past year). I also have ideas for cub scouts and sunbeams posted, my previous callings.

Visiting Teaching Handout July 2011

Here is what I'm giving the ladies I visit teach for July's message: Come to the Temple and Claim Your Blessings .  I got the idea from here: Chasing Molly.

1. I pulled up the temple box (use link here or off of website above):  temple box

2. I went to print preview and changed the scale to 130% (it filled the paper better. 

3. I selected some thick scrapbook paper that was decorated on one side and white on the other.  I printed the temple box in color on the WHITE side (outside) and the pattern was on the inside.

This is the decorative paper I used (the inside after I assembled it).

4. Cut, fold, glue

5. Print off the Quotes page and cut out: Download Quotes Here
I used mainly scissor on these, but for the small circle I did use my scallop punch to make it look like a flower.

6. I made a flag for the back by punching two small holes in the end and sliding a toothpick in the holes.  You can use a needle to punch the holes I used these:

7. Then I taped the toothpick to the back corner of the box.

8. Place quotes around the inside and fill with candy.  I put the large quote diagonal and then one quote on each side.

Or you could punch a hole in the quotes and put them on a ring.  I may go back and do this.


  1. Thank you SO much. I really appreciate the time you took to put this together and share it.

  2. Thank you for your love! I'm glad you could use it.
