Bulletin Boards

This is the year of the bulletin board!  Our school's theme this year is Out'Rhea'geous (a word play on the name of the school).  I was inspired by many many bloggers when putting these boards together.  For backgrounds I used a mixture of wrapping paper and fadeless paper.  You will find a video tutorial for creating BB letters at the end of this post :)

This is the board that you see when you walk into the building.  Our school colors are green and white, so I tried to play into the school spirit!
Paper Fan inspiration:  Katie King, Cut-Out Letter Idea:  Doodle Bugs

I got my paper fans at hobby lobby, but there are some great options HERE and HERE.

This board is near the workroom on the main hall.  It will be used to display student pictures and articles throughout the school year.
Rectangle Letter idea:  Rachel Lamb, Monster Idea:  Amy Groesbeck
This board is near the cafeteria.  Our counselor likes to keep the board inspirational/character education focused.  You can find printables for this board from Math=Love:  HERE!
I bought lots of pennants, banners, and decor from Hobby Lobby,  The background is chevron fadeless paper from a teacher store.

This board is also near the cafeteria.  Our principals wanted it to highlight how parents can connect to the school throughout the year.  
This last board I did is for the staff in the office.  This idea came from Ms. Houser's blog.  Teachers will write little notes, tidbits of inspiration, and comments about happenings on the colored paper.  I did something similar last year with our sunshine board.  You can see that HERE!
Pretty much if you use black backgrounds, astrobrights paper, and cute fonts you are good to go!  For fun fonts check out Babbling Abby!
Here's a little video on how to make the letters that I used for my boards (I have the sniffles, so sorry!!!)  Thanks to all the amazing bloggers that share their ideas for all of us to gain inspiration from!!!  Couldn't have done this without that creative spark I got from Katie, Kacey, Rachel, and Amy!
For where to find the best fonts check out Cara's post HERE!
I'll be back later on to showcase a few more projects that I've completed for B2S!  Happy decorating and teaching!!!

Thank you so much for posting this tutorial. I've been looking for a way around buying a cricut or silhouette - much rather buy books with that money! You are a lifesaver :)
