Here is the list of supplies and instructions you will need to put together the LWML Hot Chocolate Gift set:
- LWML White Towel
- LWML Clear Glass Mug
- Packet of Hot Chocolate
- 2.25” wide brown ribbon, cut into lengths of 9.5”
- 1.5” wide ribbon, cut into lengths of 9.5”
- Scotch tape or double-sided tape
- Fold towel into fourths lengthwise. (4” wide)
- Roll folded towel up into tight roll.
- Tuck Hot Chocolate packet into the end of the roll so that it isn’t visible.
- Wrap bottom 2/3rds of rolled up towel with brown ribbon. Tape wider ribbon to towel with double sided tape (or scotch tape on back-side of ribbon) along the bottom edge, so that ribbon is taped to itself at the ends. Use the second smaller piece layered above it. (The ribbon should end up covering 2.5-3” of the towel.)
- Carefully insert wrapped towel into mug, so that ribbon does not reveal any towel along bottom edge.
- Pull up on center of wrapped up towel to make the towel look like whipped cream.

These were laminated and taped to the floor of the exhibit. Participants stepped from one rug to another and offered a quick prayer for the subject provided on the “Mug Rug.” Each person could continue to pray for as long as they wished.
Now you can download these “Mug Rugs” for your own event or consider shrinking and printing them small enough to make coasters! The pdf contains 15 separate rugs offered in color only. Choose from two sizes.
