Once upon a time bookmark

Pin It
Project 10 of 52 
Update: I have fixed the download so daughters is spelled correctly.
 I just didn't retake all the pictures. 
I have been putting together projects and crafts for our upcoming girls camp. It isn't until June but I have to plan ahead. Between PTA, Cub Scouts, and Girls Camp...yeah, I am just a wee bit busy.
I love it!
This is the bookmark I made for my girls going to camp. Our theme is Camp ROYAL.
Reflect On Your Amazing Light.
The youth leaders came up with it. It's perfect. The each group will have a Disney princess and a scripture heroine. We drew Cinderella and Sariah. It's going to be a wonderful time. As a mom of all boys it is fun to get to do some girly stuff in pinks and purples.
 These bookmarks are just one of the projects I have been working on. I can't tell you how much fun this has been for me. I am excited! So many ideas and I have to narrow it down to fit into 3 days.
The quote is from President Uchtdorf's talk "Your Happily Ever After."
"Be strong and of good courage. You are truly royal spirit daughters of Almighty God. You are Princesses destined to become Queens. Your own wondrous story has already begun. Your once upon a time is now."
 I am thrilled with how these turned out. The bottle cap glitters and sparkles, the ribbon shines and the thought moves the heart. I love this inspired talk by President Uchtdorf. I want the girls to feel as special as they are. I want them to feel the love of their Heavenly Father. I want this to be a week they will remember.
Here are the instructions and printables to make your own.
Punch out the crowns with a 1" punch. Watch the corners because it is close, sorry.
Glue them into your bottle caps.
Paint a bit of glitter paint on the crown then let it dry.
Once it's dry smooth a thin layer of glossy Modge Podge.
Secure the cap to a large paper clip. I used super glue.
 Let it dry completely. Add a bit of ribbon.

Then add to the printout.
I made these, printed, and laminated them.

I love to see someone's eyes light up when they are given something. My sweet mother in law has taught me that even simple things can bring a smile to anyone's face. 

My hope is that at the end of the week the girls will know they are loved, they are valued, they are a Daughter of a King, a Princess!
