Maya Angelou "Thrive" Quote Bulletin Board

Lately, I have a Google Presentation obsession! I love that Google Presentation allows for easy editing and moving things around, unlike a Word or Google Doc. Google Presentation (and other Google Drive Apps) have lots of cool fonts, which is one of the reasons I like to use Google Presentation to print letters for bulletin boards.

I recently found a great Maya Angelou quote on Pinterest that goes great with our "Thriving" theme that I mentioned in my post about my Growth Mindset Bulletin Board. I liked how there was a patterned background on this version of the quote on Pinterest. I thought it would make a fun and inspirational bulletin board inside the school counseling suite area. When I saw chevron wrapping paper at Target I knew I had to use it for the background!

I used Google Drive Presentation to created the quote for the bulletin board. For the background I used teal chevron wrapping paper I bought at Target in the party supply aisle. I printed out the quote on regular computer paper. I cut the words and phrases to size and framed them with black card stock. I stapled them to the board then framed the bulletin board with white boarder trim.

You can click on the image above (or here) to get a copy of the file that includes the words for the quote.

Have you made any bulletin boards of a quote? What materials do you use for bulletin boards?
