Visiting Teaching Message {May 2013}

Conference Preserves are back! 

P1180115

For those of you who are new, a year ago I created Conference Preserves to keep and share thoughts from General Conference with the sisters that I visit teach.

So many of you enjoyed creating and giving the preserves, that I put together another batch for conference last fall, and now have a new batch for April’s Conference.

P1180117 If you would like to make your own set of Conference Preserves to give or to keep, here’s what to do.

First, Print the thoughts.

P1180118

 The links can be found here, here, and here. 

I used some cute paper that was white on one side, and printed on the other side.  You could use any paper—plain, printed, white, colored, or cardstock—whatever you want.

P1180119 Cut the thoughts out along the dotted lines, then fold in half.

Place in a jar, add a sweet treat, and affix the label  to the top of the jar, {I used my scalloped circle punch, but you can just cut it out with scissors} or punch a hole in it and tie it around the top.  You can also add a ribbon or decorate it any way you would like.

Happy Visiting Teaching!

P.S. If anyone is interested in printing a 8x10 copy of any of these thoughts, please e-mail me and I will add a link to that thought here.
