This year our church youth group’s theme is Come Unto Christ and be Perfected in Him. I loved a talk given by my friend Stefanie where she turned the scripture into an invitation. I tried to run with that theme when I made my bulletin board for this year.
With all of the adorable chalkboard graphics out there, I decided to try my hand at one. Honestly I figured this would be the easiest and cheapest bulletin board yet. All I had to do was design it on the computer, save it to a thumb drive and take it to Staples. There they could print it out on one big sheet for just $8. Just ask for the architectural prints in black and white. I made the graphic gray scale to add interest and since it didn’t cost any extra I figured why not. This is the graphic I created:
Once I had it printed there was a white outline around Christ’s body. I had done the best I could, but the graphic was too small to be blown up as large as I needed it. No problem, I just grabbed a black felt tip marker and carefully outlined the image covering up all of the white. In person, you absolutely can’t tell.
If you would like to use the graphic but would like to print it off for each person in your class, this prints off three per page. Print off one and then copy it at your building to save on ink.
If you are proficient with Microsoft Publisher and would like me to send you a working document so that you can change the size and edit the document, leave me a note in the comments and I’ll email it to you.
