Display Board with 3D Flowers

The Associate Minister for Pastoral Care at our church is retiring (she is over ninety and it is time for a little rest!).   At coffee hour this Sunday, there will be a reception and a chance for members of the congregation to leave sticky notes with messages and good wishes for her on the display board I made yesterday.

I needed to get this together quickly since on Friday I will be leaving to take my son back to college. I was lucky to find science project display boards in many colors at Michael's - I thought this yellow was bright and cheery for what could be a dull January day.

The leafy branches are from Storybook and the flowers are from Walk in My Garden - cut in two colors and two sizes and layered with yellow circle centers.  I bent the petals up a bit before I put them together.

Just a quick post to show you something different that I did with my bug!  I think it will be bright and cheery for the retirement celebration.

  6. This is a beautiful and cheery board. I'm sure Margaret will appreciate it. How sweet of you. I love these poster boards for projects but I didn't know they came in different colors. I will have to check them out.

  7. What a great idea! You did an awesome job - love the colors and flowers!
