general conference notebooks and value project

I know that this idea is not a new one, but it needed a bit of an update.  Last year as the Personal Progress Leader I found a general conference value project and encouraged the girls to do it by giving them a handout with all of the information on it and tied a pen to it.  You can download this under the Value Project tab.

This year as a Beehive Advisor I decided to have the girls make their Conference Notebooks together.  I found a PDF of all of the Apostles and First Presidency for the girls to tape into their notebooks as tabs, and then redesigned some of the other General Conference goodies that are already out there to make it match our notebooks and not use up all of my colored ink! 

At Michaels I found animal print notebooks for 75 cents!  They also had some coordinating animal print jewels.  I went home and pulled out some coordinating paper, scissiors, packing tape, double sided tape and glue sticks. 

There were a few things I did to make it go more smoothly for the activity.  I printed out and cut the title and inserts and premade the Apostle Tabs.  Get the Title and Inserts HERE.

To make the Apostle Tabs I just printed and cut them out (get them from the link below), then cut a long strip of packing tape.  I then put the Apostles face down on the sticky side of the tape and then covered with another piece for some home lamination!  Then I cut them out with a tiny border so that the tape still stuck to itself.

To put the tabs in, cut a piece of packing tape about 3/4 of an inch wide and then tape over the Apostle Tab so that the tape adheres to the 3 sides of the tab that lay on top of the paper.

I put them in alphabetical order and staggered them, leaving about 5 pages in between each tab.

This would be a great gift for Visiting Teachees!

Here are the sites that these ideas/inserts originate from:
