I made some Young Women value crayons today, and am so smitten by their cuteness. We are encouraging our girls to read in the Book of Mormon every day, for at least 5 minutes (remember PROS?), and are having an activity this week to discuss ways to study the scriptures.
We’ll have a pack of crayons for each girl, and a missionary copy of the Book of Mormon with the friend tag attached. I still have my tag on my personal set of scriptures – and I love how I am reminded every time I glance at it that the scriptures are my friend and I shouldn’t neglect them! Every time I pick them up, I want to say “Hello, Friend”. 🙂
This time I printed on 8 1/2 x 11″ shipping labels. I got these at Staples, but they are also available at Amazon for laser or jet-ink printers.
You may remember that they wrap around the cover and have points from Elder Scott’s talk, “The Power of Scripture”. The original download had just one tag to a page, but I’ve squeezed four to a page, to make it more economical to print for a large group.

Back to the Value Crayons! Each wrapper has the value color, and scripture associated with that value, printed on it.
I am using crayons from a Rose Art 27-pack, so don’t have anything fancy like silver or gold (which would be amazing!). I instead used gray for Faith (since white wouldn’t show up too well on the scripture page) and brown for Virtue (the closest thing to gold that’s not easily mistaken for yellow or orange).
I printed the crayon wrappers using black ink on colored paper. Click the following to download the YW value crayon wrappers.
If using Crayola crayons, the wrappers need to be a little longer. This version has the wrappers spaced further apart for a longer crayon.
