2012 Mutual & Primary Themed Plaque Attacks...


At the start of each new year a theme is chosen for the children's organization and the teen organization in the LDS church. Throughout the year these themes are the focus of lessons and activities within those organizations. I particularly love the thoughts conveyed in the themes this year, so I decided to make them the focus for my January Plaque Attacks.


As you can see I made two versions of the Primary (children's organization) theme, which is "Choose the Right." I also made a plaque version of the Mutual (teen organization) theme -- "Arise and shine forth that thy light may be a standard for the nations." I think we can all agree those are good words to live by!

For those new to the "Plaque Attack Club," each month I feature a new printable document. You'll need to check back every month to receive each new document.


Collect the following materials to make a plaque of your own:
  • 6 1/2" square wooden plaque {available online or at craft stores}
  • 1 piece of scrapbook paper 
  • acrylic craft paint to compliment your paper
  • Mod Podge {I like matte finish.}
  • paint brush
  • Rust-oleum Matte Clear Sealer
For a tutorial on how to make these plaques, go here!


I am offering all three January Plaque Attack printables in a single document for anyone upon request. Simply do the following:

1.) leave a comment below,
2.) consider becoming a follower of my blog,
3.) then send me an email with the words "January 2012 Plaque Attack" in the subject line of the email.

My email address is on my sidebar under "Welcome -- Contact Information."
I will return the plaque images in a single Microsoft Word document.


These documents can be made into plaques by children, teens or those who love them! 


FYI:  Here's another fabulous free Mutual themed printable from The Crafting Chicks. {Don't you just love it!?!) Their printable is beautiful and would be great to use in a classroom situation or at home, however, if you want a printable personalized to compliment colors in a child's bedroom you might want to consider buying a "matching" scrapbook paper and making one of these Plaque Attacks!

Enjoy!

I just found your blog while blog hopping. I was looking around and found these plaques. I love them! The subway art is really hot right now but I love that these are smaller and whatever color you paint the plaque will just add to the design. I am definitely becoming a member of the club. : ) Once I buy some plagues I will email you with the request on which one I would like. Thanks so much for this. I am going to put this on Pinterest too. I also pinned your birthday roladex calendar. I have been wanting to do something like this.
