Steubenville Treats

I pulled an old project out to show you...I mentioned that I do youth ministry in an earlier blog post. I go to St. Margaret Mary in Slidell, LA and every year we take kids to a retreat called Steubenville Atlanta. This past June we took over 275 kids on five buses...let me tell you, it was a BLAST! I have a lot of fun doing it and I know everyone thinks I'm crazy when I say it's really a FUN thing to do, however, it truly is! The kids are all blessings.

Anyway, here's what I made for my small group--I used just small canning jars and put candy, a prayer card, an Immaculate medal and a friendship bracelet in them. I tied ribbon around the jar and added a hanging tag which I put a Prima through. I used a cute stamp from Hobby Lobby (don't know brand) to put on the lid, along with some CTMH patterned paper underneath the stamped layer.

Hope you like--these were super easy to make and came out SO cute! I loved them and the girls in my group were ecstatic when they got them!
