"PLUG INTO GENERAL CONFERENCE"-Gift idea for Young Women

As you ALL know, Young Women LOVE their phones, iPads, iTouches, MP3 players, etc... I stumbled across "dust plugs" on ebay one day and knew that I had to buy them.  I didn't know how I would use them for young women's per say, but I knew the girls would OBSESS over these.  I purchased a package of 21 on ebay* for $3.75 (note: you will have to bid on them, so the price could vary).  They are universal and should fit in any headphone jack that you have. They have glittered bows, roses, daisies, reg you can get a pretty great variety. 

I bought a package for me, and every time I pull my phone out at YW (and everywhere for that matter) I have someone comment on how amazing and cute it is with the common phrase "Oh, I want that!"

General Conference is coming up, so I thought since this is literally called a plug, I would play on words. And hopefully, each time they saw their plug they would remember the words of the Prophets and listen to the whispering of the Holy Ghost.
I printed on white card stock and made it look like an iPod with the poem in the middle and the cute plug on the upper hand corner.
  Here's the poem I came up with:

“Plug” Into General Conference 
In times of troubles and of tears
We don’t need to worry
We don’t need to fear.

A prophet’s voice will guide and direct
We need to listen
We need to connect.

“Block” out the interference that comes our way,
We will feel the Spirit
We won’t delay.

For the joy we find will not be bought,
It comes by listening and in thought.

You may download a pdf version of my handout here: Plug into General Conference (4 per page):

* to find these on ebay, search for "bow dust plugs", or "flower dust plugs"...  You will find them that way.  They are usually sold in a 19 or 21 piece set and shipping is free.  It can take 3-4 weeks to get (they come from China), so you want to plan ahead.  Also, every time I have ordered one, I have always been given on extra plug as a free gift!

  1. What a great idea! I love the simplicity and the application to this century part of this:) I'm helping with a BYU Women's Conference Sharing Station-- how would you feel if we perhaps used this and credited it back to you? Not sure if we're headed in that direction, but just wanted to get permission in case. shayla (toushay73atgmaildotcom)

    1. Thanks so much Shay! I am so glad you like it! I would love it if you used my idea. The purpose of my blog is to share and inspire others with my ideas. I am more than fine with it! Let me know if you end up using it and how it turns out!

  2. I can't wait to make these & take them around to my Beehives before Conference! What a creative & fun idea!Thanks!!

  3. How did you attach the "plugs" to the cards?

    1. I just poked a hole through with a pencil and then pushed the plug through. The plugs have ribs on them, which helped it so they stay in place and don't come out as easily. You still might need to be careful that they don't fall out. I am going to put them in a basket so that the girls can sift through them and pick the one they want at the end of class. Hope that helps!
