"Whoo Can Help You With..." School Counselor Bulletin Board

I got the idea for this school counselor bulletin board from a School Counselor Blog Facebook Page fan, Sarah. I loved Sarah's "Whoo Can Help You With..." school counselor bulletin board that she posted to the School Counselor Blog Facebook Page.

I decided to use my Cricut Expression paper cutter to make my own version of the bulletin board for the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade hallway at school. 

I got my Cricut Expression paper cutter for Christmas last year. I used it a lot over the summer to make bulletin boards.  I am just getting around to posting pictures of some of the ones I made.  You can also check out the "College and Career Ready!" bulletin board I made using my Cricut Expressiont.


 

Bulletin Board How To

 

Background and Tree

I covered the bulletin board with light blue roll paper.

I then drew a tree free-hand on brown roll paper. I cut it out with scissors and stapled it to the background.

Letters

I cut out the letters for "Who Can Help You With..." on black cardstock using my Cricut Expression paper cutting machine and the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge. I used a piece of red cardstock to cut out the word "You."

You could also use an a school paper cuter, like an Ellison die-cut machine or buy pre-cut letters. (I have seen pre-cut letters at the dollar store!) 

I stapled the letters to the bulletin board background.


Owl


I cut out the owl on two different shades of blue textured cardstock using my Cricut Expression paper cutting machine and the Creat A Critter Cricut Cartridge.

You could also buy a die cut owl, print out a clip art picture of an owl, or draw an owl. 

Leaves and Grass


I cut out the leaves on green, red, and yellow cardstock using my Cricut Expression paper cutting machine and the Cricut Cartridge, Plantin School Book.  I also cut the grass out using green cardstock.

I printed out the words in DJ Light font on Avery Clear Sticker Paper,  If I did this bulletin board in the future I would probably just write the words on the leaves with a sharpie because it is kind of hard to read.

I cut the words out with scissors and affixed them to the leaves. I then stapled the grass to the background and the leaves onto the tree.

Pictures and Description

I printed out a picture of the other school counselor I work with, and myself to put on the bulletin board. On white computer paper, using the DJ Light font I printed "Mrs. Schultz, School Counselor, Grades 5-8, and my room number." 

I cut the descriptions and picture to size using my paper cutter. I then affixed the picture to black cardstock and our names and information on yellow cardstock. I used the paper cutter to leave a border around each one.


Here is a full list of the supplies I used:

  1. SO cute! Danielle, it would be great to see you add how much time you spend on the items that you make. Even just a ball park.
