Young Women LDS Torch Handout

 I volunteered to make a handout for New Beginnings next week. So I got this brilliant idea from my sister to make an edible torch for the Young Women of my ward. 
 Our theme for the new year is ARISE AND SHINE FORTH
I love the theme and it reminds me of the color yellow so I placed lemon drops in the long bags. I purchased the bags from a gal in my ward who sells "Stampin up" supplies. I love these bags! They are perfect for small treats. You can use them for any Holiday or occasion. The ideas are limitless.
 After I filled all the bags, I assembled the torches toppers. After printing the "Arise and Shine" theme on Label paper, I stuck them on the colored card stalk. So the theme circles were like little stickers. It saved me time gluing each circle on the card stalk.

 Here are some extra handouts without the torch for the ladies. ( I ran out of torches).
 I love the look of the young woman face in the flames! It really does look like a torch. Plus, it is great way to reinforce the torch motto for New Begginings and to introduce the Personal Progress program to the girls with it's different values.
This is the basket of handouts for the Young Women to take home.

FYI: I printed the images on Office Depot white laser shipping labels. The actual size is the same as Avery 5163 labels. Measuring 2 in. by 4 in. Then I used a medium circle punch to punch out the circles. I hand cut each YW torch but if you had a large punch you could cut them out as a rectangle or oval. Sorry I don't have the link to access the printable at this time. 

The pictures below show the Gym and how the YW leaders decorated for our New Beginnings.
I love the theme ARISE & SHINE FORTH! 
We used the color scheme of the torch flame; Red, Orange and Yellow.
 We decorated with warm lamps and various sized flickering LED candles. The warm light added to the ambiance of the evening.
 Here is a view of the right side of the stage.
This is our food table. The Young Women Leaders brought the Yellow desserts out when the speakers were through. It looked really nice that evening.
