So when I worked at the Open University, I was a bit of a tinker and wouldn't let any of my colleagues escape a big birthday or special occasion celebration. I used to design large plaques which I'd fix to office doors. Weddings warranted a complete desk make-over!
Here are a few piccies:
A birthday cake. Made from cake-shaped foam and covered with fabric and framed. Decorated with flowers, buttons and beads. Mounted on foam backing board.
With fairy lights on the top.
Hand made flowers mounted on foam
backing board. Framed.
Decorated with butterflies.
Over 100 paper butterflies cut from plain and patterned paper. Pinned on to black foam backing board. Some of the paper I used was from Italian advertising just for Glo as she is Italian.
Over 100 handmade paper flowers in Karen's wedding colours. Favour bags around the desk filled with love heart sweeties secured with a flower. Heart shaped lights. Handmade fabric balloons. Butterflies. This was a fun one. Finished off with some real, large snowdrops.
A four window picture frame mounted on foam backing board. Each apature filled with a different beach theme scene. Made from different types of paper. Buttons. Shells. Sequins. Fabric.
All handmade paper pom poms and bunting for this one.
In Emma's favourite colour pink.
Finishing touch was real lobelia in troughs in front of her desk and one helium balloon either side.
