From FAB!

This last Monday night was the last night of GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior), and I am/was a leader of (12) 2nd Graders!  I wanted to make a little something special for them, and it didn't take long for me to decide what to do. :)

I did a little shopping, then went through each of their badge books and found on the first badge earned (Creation), what they had colored as their favorite color.

THEN...I tried my best to make their gift match their favorite color, and added the extra-special touch of personalizing with each of their initials.

Ready????? we go!
From DRAB....

To FAB! :)

Yes...the pens are now matching designer pens. ;-)

I also added their theme verses to the inside of the back cardboard page. (Prov. 9:10, Prov. 16:16-17) - forgot to take picture. :)

It took way longer than I thought, so it was a bit...hectic at the end there, but I'm really glad I took the time to make each of them a little gift. I packaged it up nicely in clear cello bags and added a small handmade card with personal note inside (another forgotten picture, lol). Hopefully they liked the gifts. :)

Figured it was about time for another post...and thought this would be a nice one to share - I know I always love a good makeover (crafting style) story. ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. So Special! The girls will never forget their leader/guide!

  2. Awesome work Crystal! Very special... But that appears to be you! Thoughtful, caring and wanting to make others feel special. I am guessing your kindness has touched their hearts (or their parents'!)
    Very nicely done. Keep up the good work!
    You amaze me...

  3. How thoughtful. Little girls will love this special gift that was made just for them.

  4. I am a Girl Scout troop leader and this would be an awesome gift for my girls at the end of the troop year. How did you get the paper around the spirals for the cover though? Just discovered your blog. Thanks


Go ahead...make my day! :)
