Here’s another fun young women’s idea that I just did on Sunday. I wanted to do something fun for Halloween-they seem to really like getting surprise goodies and this worked out well. I wish I had taken a picture of the treat bags I did but I forgot and I didn’t have any leftover. I assembled the treat bags by putting in one vampire teeth, one mini bubbles, a spider ring, some candy and a darling skeleton straw I got at the dollar store with a bunch of candy.
Because the straw was tall, I used some white paper bags I had on hand and threw the goodies in there. I didn’t fold it over or anything but punched two holes in the top and threaded some black baker’s twin through, attaching this card with a knot. Everything in the bag, minus the candy, has something to do with the saying on the tag. I printed 8 tags to a sheet. (The graphics are from the kit “Spooktacular” by Adorable Pixels at Gingerscraps.net)
For the “eye on your goals” part of the tag, I wanted to create something fun and unexpected. So I decided to make monster pops! Easy peasy! I grabbed some large marshmellows, dipped them in white almond bark (I prefer it over white chocolate), and then dipped the tops into some sprinkles and coconut while the bark was still wet. Once dry, I sprayed them with some pink edible spray dye and adhered the little candy eye with some more almond bark. Ta-da! A super cute little monster to remind them to keep their eyes on their goals with Personal Progress. I put some floral foam in the bottom of a larger candy jar I had on hand and stuck them all together in a fun bouquet. You should have seen the looks I got in the hallway at Church. And the girls saw them before they knew what they were after Sunday School and were excited for young women’s! Yea for that! They were a big hit and everyone said they tasted surprisingly good. I didn’t get one because they were all eaten-a good sign right? I think I’m going to have to do some more pops like this in the future. Better start working on my cake pops!
