Leaf Outlines – Thank You idea

Carrie N. used these files like this: “we used these for the outgoing Primary Presidency as a ‘thank you’ …

“We printed the flowers on different colored paper, and the leaves on different shades of green paper and let the kids write simple thank yous, or draw a simple picture … the boys seemed to prefer the leaves to the flowers … so it was nice to have both!

“We then attached the flowers and leaves to green Popsicle sticks (one leaf or one flower to a stick-the leaves at ‘fun’ angles) and let the kids stick them into a cute, inexpensive flower pot filled with white rice. It looked like a beautiful floral arrangement! I’m supposing that you could use dry beans or colored rice for the ‘base’ to stick the “flowers” and any great pots – size depending on how many flowers you’ve got … My first counselor found the cutest planters on clearance at a fabric store … so the possibilities are endless … we presented the ‘bouquets of flowers’ to the presidency the following week – and they all cried. We thought it was a fun way – instead of a card or a poster to say ‘thank you’ for all of their hard work and service.”
