Hi! I am Sheena’s sister, Shannon. Sheena asked me to post some of my ideas for primary teacher gifts, baptism gifts and hand-outs. I am a scrapbooker and love any excuse to use my creative side.
Laura from Sunbeam Stamps sent us several stamps to use. Thanks Laura! Sunbean Stamps
has stamps for almost every LDS occasion–young women, relief society, scouts, missionary, quotes, family and, of course, primary. They have so many adorable stamps that I had a hard time choosing just a few.
Laura started Sunbean Stamps
because she had could not find a baptism stamp for her sons’ baptism. She felt that if she saw a need for LDS stamps then others probably did too. She searched for the best manufacturer and I think she found them. I have used stamps from several different companies and I think her stamps are high quality stamps.
Sunbeam stamps has clear and wooden stamps, ink pads, glitter pens and more. Be sure to check out their website at http://www.sunbeamstamps.com/
and tell them that Little LDS Ideas sent you.
Teacher Appreciation Jar
Primary teachers have such an important job & I dont think they get thanked enough. Why not make this appreciation jar, fill it with their favorite candy and make sure they know that they are loved and appreciated?!
How to make: Wrap a strip of colored cardstock around the jar. Stamp the ‘I belong to the Church Kids’ stamp on a strip of white cardstock. Wrap the white, stamped strip onto the jar. Write or type a thank you message and attach to the jar with string. Fill with candy or another treat.
Help primary children gain a love of the scriptures by giving them a set of scripture pencils. Add a travel sized Book of Mormom and they will be ready to answer any question asked of them in primary. : )
If a set of scripture pencils is a bit much, I am sure they would be just as excited about receiving just one.
How to Make: I made the brown box out of cardstock but you could easily use the box the pencils come in. Stamp the ‘I belong to the Church Circle’ stamp on a colored piece of cardstock. Cut out around the circle and attach with a colored string.
Baptism Picture Frame Gift
What a great way to showcase your child’s special day! This frame includes a photo of the baptism girl/boy (hopefully in their white clothes), details of the day and the quote, “Little Child all dressed in White I can choose the right.”
How to Make
: I used a picture frame that will hold a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ picture. Cut a piece of white cardstock for the background. Stamp the ‘Little Child’ stamp
on off-white or light cream cardstock. Back with white cardstock.
Attach a piece of off-white or light cream ribbon along the bottom-it can go on top of or behind the photo. Write or type the details of the baptism day on a piece of off-white or light cream cardstock and attach on top of the ribbon. I wrote:
Baptized by his father
on 28 December 2006″
Primary Lollipop Hand-outs
How to make: Stamp the ‘I belong to the Church Circle’ stamp on a colored piece of cardstock. Cut out around the circle and attach with a colored string.
I may be posting more ideas using Sunbeam Stamps in the near future, so be sure to check back soon.
