Thoughts by L:

This was such an easy gift for friends. I actually gave it to our sweet cousin, who was willing to watch our dog. We were leaving in less than 10 hours, so to make things easy on myself. Instead of cooking something myself, I bought a four leave clover shaped cookie from Great Harvest. Their cookies are scrumptious and very fresh!

The cookie is quite large… the size of my hand, large!

All I had to do was quickly design a tag to go with it. This is a simple gift anyone can create. Whether you make your own cookies or buy them, you are ready to go with minimum work!

Seek Ye Riches

What You Need:

Paper or Cardstock

Cellophane Bag

Twist Tie

Rolo’s

Printer

Print:

How To:

Start by printing the tag, above. I am obsessed with cardstock! There is nothing better than a freshly printed image on a crisp piece of cardstock, I print everything on cardstock… We have quite the cardstock reserve. It is stiff and doesn’t bend easily. I would suggest always printing on cardstock.

Once you have your image printed, fill your cellophane bag or container, with rolo’s. I used a small hole puncher, to punch holes at the top of the tag. Using a twist tie to thread through the holes and twist closed… and you are done!

Thoughts by L

In life it is easy to get caught up, trying to “keep up, with the Jones’s”. We tend to compare or envy others. It is important to be we are grateful for what we have, no matter the circumstances. Always, remembering what is most significant. Not processions or things… but things of substance. People, kindness and acts of service.

What You Need:

Skittles

Rolo’s

Class Container

Carstock

Printer

Thread

Hole Punch

How To:

I loved the way this one turned out! Mostly because the colors are organized perfectly and it calmed my OCD… Just kidding. But really! I love when things are cohesively sounds.

First, start off by sorting out the skittles. I used plastic cups to sort mine. Once they are sorted, add the rolo’s to the bottom of your glass container. I purchased mine from the dollar store. As well, as my candy! I love one stop shopping, don’t you?!

When your rolo’s are evening spread out, you determine the color order you want your skittles to go in. As you can see, mine were: green, yellow, orange, red, and purple.

Once you have added each colored layer at a time, you are complete. If you choose to, print the tag to go with it. I used small colored thread I bought at Hobby Lobby. Using a whole punch, I strung the thread to attach the tag to the glass container.

Thoughts by L:

What a simple, yet aesthetically beautiful gift! We are all lucky to have a great friend. Be sure you don’t take them for granted… a good friend is like a four leaf clover!

Be My Valentine

What You Need:

Cardstock

Printer

Cellophane Bag

Twist Tie

Hole Puncher

Box (optional)

Print:

How To:

Start by printing the tag. Place cookies, in bag. Using the hole puncher, punch holes in the tag. Thread the twist tie through the hole and twist to close the bag. If you choose to, place the bag inside a small box, from the dollar store or other craft store. The only reason I used a box this year was because we were receiving a lot of rain. I wanted to be sure they would stay dry, since I was going to place these on doorsteps.

Thoughts by L:

This is one of my favorite Valentine’s day handout! I found the tag on Pinterest.

I have made this for my class in Young Women’s, Primary and for my ministering sisters. This year, I even made them for my husband’s ministering families. Instead of a single cookie, I would put half a dozen or more in one baggie.

I love this message! It is my absolute favorite! I’m sure I say that about many of these handouts, but this really is the best one.

We all need a little extra love. Especially, on Valentine’s Day! We all want to be admired and have someone to love. There is no better love story than that of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Our true Valentine.

Bread of Life

Loaf of Bread

Twine or Thread

Hole Punch

Printer

Cardstock

How to:

Usually I love making homemade bread! However, this week I was working with limited time. I purchased a loaf of Honey Whole Wheat bread from my local Great Harvest bakery. Having once been a small business owner, I enjoy doing business with local stores.

They also have a great deal on Wednesdays, $2.99 a loaf. Once I got there, I noticed that they were selling petite honey bear jars. Since they were so adorable, I purchased those as well!

At home I had a quick and easy assembly. Since my bread was prepackaged, I didn’t have to wrap it in cellophane. I used twine that I purchased from Hobby Lobby to tie around the loaf of bread. Using a hole puncher, I punched holes into the quote before adding the honey and tying a bow.

Thoughts by L:

January in Utah can be cold and sometimes gloomy. A warm loaf of bread on a blustery winters day, sounded delightful! Who doesn’t love bread… I know I do!

I’m pretty sure carbs are one of my love languages! 😉 haha!

As simple as this was, it was very impactful on me. I needed this reminder that the Lord is the reason we are here. He is the reason we can find peace. He is also the reason for living.

Our Savior, Jesus Christ is the bread of Life.

Fresh and Clean

What you Need:

Paper Towels

Twine

Glue Stick

Cardstock

Printer

Print:

How To:

This is so simple! You are going to print both pages. Cut out one of each tag. Then glue each blank side, together. Punch a hole in the corner of the tag. Thread the twine through the hole and tie a knot. Once that is finished, wrap the twine around the paper towel and make a bow in the back. That way is isn’t in the way of the tag, in the front but it is also easy to take off.

Thoughts by L:

If you are like me and enjoy simple but creative handouts, this ones for you! We purchase our paper towels in bulk, so it was cheap… yet inspiring. The message to start now! The challenge to start fresh and be whatever you want to be.

I absolutely love setting goals! There is something empowering and invigorating about challenging myself. Trying something new. Or becoming the best I can be!

If you don’t already, set new goals for yourself. To read more, make a new friend, or learn a new skill. You will be better for it! You will create a life you truly love and become the person, you really want to be.
