We Seek After…Bulletin Board

Last year our Young Women’s theme was the 13th Article of Faith.  I had the assignment to decorate our bulletin board.  We have a chalk board in the middle and two bulletin boards on each side.  Our ward takes the left side.  This is what I came up with

(note: this could easily be changed based on the theme of the year).

The striped paper is three sheets of scrapbook paper, two on the top and 1 cut in half and placed side by side on the bottom.  I printed out the letters and cut them out with scissors and made a banner.  The “SEEK” letters are popped out (but you really can’t tell in person).  On the sides of the board I ran crape paper and taped it every once in a while.

The center background was a large peice of scrapbook paper pre-cut.  I printed off the Owl from a google image search.  Then I sketched out a shadow on orange paper and cut that out.  They are layered with tiny foamy stickers to pop them out and give depth. YW We Seek After These Things

At the begining of the year I thought up 60 or so things the girls should seek after.  After printing them off in different fonts and on milti colored cardstock, I put them in a glass jar.  Every week the young woman in charge of the thought would pick through the jar and talk about why or when they “Seek After” that thing.

There were enough choices that the young women always found something they could relate to.  The board was a little plain in the beggining of the year, but now it’s packed! YW We Seek After These Things

We have adopted this owl as our mascot this year.  Doesn’t he look wise?

A rectangle glass container I had stored all of the tags.  I made a graphic, printed it off and glue stick-ed it to the front.

Our President liked the idea of an evolving bulletin board last year and wants to repeat it again this year.  Be sure to check out my 2012 Pinlight Bulletin Board.
