YW Christmas Gifts

This year for our YW Christmas gifts we decided to make these plaques.

I found this idea on the Internet which was my inspiration & when I did a Google search I found this design that I wanted to use.

 One of our YW leaders, Rachel & her husband, cut all the wood boards & painted them.
She even distressed them--so awesome!

**For those of you who've asked, the boards are 2 feet long and half of them are 7 inches wide & the other half are about 5 3/4 inches wide.

I found cute coordinating scrapbook cardstock & cut out the letters with my Cricut.

Then all us leaders got together and had a little Mod Podge party :)

I think they all turned out so cute & each one is different to show how we're all different yet beautiful when we are uniquely ourselves.

I found this story from the Dec. New Era LDS church magazine & used the following quote which I added to a tag to go with each plaque.

"For a moment, I saw myself through God’s eyes, and it was glorious. I was completely myself. Not the self that others expected me to be. Not even the self that I was “supposed” to be. The self that God knew was in me—the truest part of my soul.

What freedom I felt then. I was of worth! I was worth something because I was myself. Me. God loved me, not my skills or my looks. I was beautiful and precious just because I was His daughter."
-Amy Jones, New Era Dec. 2011, Dancing by the Light of a Christmas Tree.

This is such a wonderful message & something I hope we all learn.

Thanks to all the wonderful YW leaders who helped make these gifts!!!
