We like to give the young women in our ward a little gift on the Sunday before their birthdays. This year we are making “Arise and Shine” wands made with giant Pixy Sticks.
I wanted the top to resemble a sunburst (shine!), and the butterfly to represent us as we arise and follow the Savior. We will have this vase full, and the girls can choose what flavor they want from the wand bouquet.
You can find the tutorial I used by clicking on the image above. I used 8.5 x 11″ yellow copy paper instead of scrapbook paper, and I made the Arise and Shine circle which you can download here in English or here in Portuguese. The butterfly is punched from gold glitter cardstock and folded in half, so the wings are lifted in flight! I used a glue dot to adhere the butterfly to the circle.
These could also be fun for a take-home for a New Beginnings program.
