  1. These are SO cute and will be the perfect activity for my daughter’s Little Flowers All Saints Day Party! Thank you for sharing this !!

  2. Thank you very much! I can’t wait to use these!

  3. I am having trouble finding the link to print out the adorable All Saints Day Cupcake toppers

  4. says

    I love this! I think I am going to print out all the pieces and then make ziploc bags with the specialty pieces for certain saints. I am then going to print some simple biographical info and have my 4th and 5th grade REP kids choose a saint to create and learn about for All Saints Day! Thanks for the great inspiration!

  5. All the Catholic churches in our area only do activities for halloween. Do you have any ideas how I can get something going for All Saints Day? It’s probably too late for this year, but at least there could be something for next year.

  6. Yep, me too!! I subscribed because it says it’s not too late to get them, but I didn’t get anything in my e-mail to click to download them.

    • The link comes in the subscriber email, so that goes out each time I post. You should get an email with the link as soon as there is another post- it doesn’t come in the original email where you verify your email address. Hope this makes sense. 🙂

  7. Beth Eilert says

    I am also a registered subscriber but the link isn’t at the bottom of any of the updates from Catholic Icing. Is there another way I can access these? They would be wonderful to use with my first grade students! Thank you.

    • Beth Eilert says

      Ahhh… I found the link. It looks a little different than the one you showed, perhaps due to the filter my school uses.

      This is a wonderful resource. Thank you so much for sharing it!

  8. This is amazing, Lacy! Thank you!

  9. Thank you very much, Lacy, we don’t have in Brazil someone so criative like you! Thanks for sharing your criativity with us! God bless you!

  10. That is a great idea Lacy!! I just added this link to my All Saints post. God bless you!!

  11. Lacy, just wanted you to know I linked you today! Your ideas are always wonderful!

    We are using your link for ST Longinus this year!

  12. Thank you so much Lacy!!!!!! We are hosting an all saints day party to 😉 And thought this would be awesome. Thank you!

  13. Andrea, I thought I couldn’t access it either. I went back to my e-mail and found that the link that was posted in blue on the sample was in fact black print in my e-mail. Just look for the actual words “Subscriber Bonus Page” in BOLD, Black print. Click on it and it will take you to the templates. Good luck to you.

  14. Dear Lacy

    Could you please guide me as to print the templates for the all saintsn paper bags.

    thanks wendy

  15. These are so adorable! Thank you!!

  16. These are so awesome, thanks so much! We are loving your preschool book btw…I’m planning on writing a little review on my blog soon.

  17. Lacy me parece fantastico todo lo que propones y utilizo muchas ideas en casa con mis peques. estoy interesada en tus plantillas de santos, pero algo pasa con el mensaje que no me llega el enlace para descargar. Te agradeceria mucho que me lo enviaras si puede ser para realizar con mis hijos en esta proxima festividad. Por acá por españa está lloviendo estos dias bastante 🙂 y estar en casa haciendo estas manualidades tan productivas y bellas es ya un pequeño milagro.
    un abrazo.

  18. Hi Lacy! My son is “star student of the week” at St. Michael’s school. It just so happens that I can join his class on Friday, Nov. 2nd, to do a craft or activity with the class. I was wondering if you have any good ideas for an All Souls Day craft? I was thinking of a book mark or luminary with a Souls prayer? It has to be easy enough for first graders to complete. They are doing a Saint Procession tomorrow during Mass and dressing up as their Saint, along with a speech on each Saint. Can’t wait!

  19. I just signed up for the emails! I hope it is not to late to get the ebook for the puppets. I would love to do these with my kids. Was hoping for today but just saw I have to wait till you post again and get an email. Have a great day and thank you for all you great ideas!

  20. Thanks so much for this, Lacy. We had a grand time making saints at our little All Saints Party. In fact, my son’s only complaint was that the big kids didn’t get to do the craft, so I’ll be pulling out the templates and construction paper and letting him at it this weekend!

  21. Okay I have honestly be looking at this now for hours, I stepped away and came back and poof I found it. Sorry to bother you and thanks again.

  22. Hi, I’ve subscribed for quite a long time now but can’t seem to find the free download in my emails. I was thinking of doing the Papal paper sack puppets tomorrow in our co-op but need the templates!

  23. Cheryl Newton says

    My bad! I read one of the other posts and figured out where the link was. Thanks to poster Vicki!

  24. Donde esta el libro electronico? no encuentro plantillas, todo es bonito,
    pero no se pueden hacer las actividades
    atentamente espero su respuesta

  25. Oh your ideas are from God 🙂 !

  26. Could you provide a list of what saints you have made with these templates. I purchased them and some of them I’ve figured out (St. Nick, Mother Theresa….) but there are others I’m not sure about and I’m wondering if any of them are saints we are going to be studying in Little Flowers.

    • I provided templates so that can create practically any saint.

      • This is a great craft! I purchased it, but cannot figure out who the saint is in the pink dress, holding the cup and palm tree. Please help!

        • Hi Sylvia,

          Since she has eyes on a cup, that is Saint Lucy. However, just know that you can mix and match pieces to make tons of different saints, not just ones that Lacy shows here.

  27. How do I download the ebook on saint puppets?

  28. Cindy Feeney (Kinderkay) says

    Hi Lacy!
    I have been creating my own religious resources for years, but they are NOTHING compared to yours! Wow! I love everything that you created! You are definitely my new best friend! (smile) Thank you for making religion fun for our little ones!!

    When I originally commented I clicked the
    “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way
    you can remove people from that service? Thanks!

    • There should be a way at the bottom of the emails to “unsubscribe”. I can’t do that- only you can. I suppose you’ll get this as an email 3 times. Sorry!

  30. I purchased the ebook saint puppets, and I can’t retrieve them. I have sent you three emails, and have not heard back. Please advise me on how to get my purchase.


    • Hi Melanie –

      I haven’t received any of the contacts, but can you try to reach out again via the contact form?

      I just tried looking up your email address and I can’t find any purchases with that email address, but if you drop me a note through the contact form and give me some other possible email addresses (and make sure to include your last name, since I can also search by that), I’ll try to track it down for you. 🙂

  31. Jennifer A Villella says

    I have purchased this ebook years ago, but do not see it downloaded, nor can I find the original email. Is there anyway my purchase can be looked up and resent?

    • Jennifer –

      The best way to get in touch with us can be found on the contact page:

      I went ahead and looked up your past transactions with your email address that was listed with this comment and I found three past purchases, but not the puppet patterns eBook. If you drop me an email with any other email addresses it might be under, that would be great. Thanks!

  32. I just did this craft with my home study kiddos and it turned out so cute!! They did a great job being creative and the templates were fantastic!! Thank you!!

  33. These are very cute! Have you thought about selling individual plans for something like $0.99? I’m on a budget for my class and only needed one so I’m recreating it myself, but would have been able to spend $1 for just the nun plans.

    • Hi Jodi –
      This set contains 50+ individual shapes to make all kinds of saints and the like. You end up piecing together the pieces yourself to make the saints you want to create. So, it isn’t really something that can get broken up in that way. I know this probably might not make sense without you seeing the product, but it would be clearer if you saw it. They are just lots of shapes and pieces and parts to use on multiple people – like a miter, a sash, praying hands, etc.

  34. Is St. Matthew included?

    • Hi Leslie –

      There aren’t specific saints in the ebook. This set contains 50+ individual shapes to make all kinds of saints and the like. You end up piecing together the pieces yourself to make the saints you want to create. I know this probably might not make sense without you seeing the product, but it would be clearer if you saw it.

    I purchased your saint puppet template. Where will I be able to download it?


  36. Michelle Rambo says

    It says free. But when I open the link its asking me to pay? Are they really free?
