We wanted to decorate her cubicle in a way that was cheery, happy, and sunny. I decided daisies were the thing. I thought we could cut daisies out of paper and pin them to her cubicle walls.Our color scheme: yellow, white, and green.
I was surfing pinterest and came across this image (Be Optimistic). It occured to me that this is perfect for Belinda! Her nickname is 'Be' and she loves inspirational things.
I thought of putting inspirational words on each petal of our paper daisies with 'Be' in the center of them.
Our dasies had 7 petals each so I had to come up with words in sets of 7s.
I created a template in Word making two ovals the same shape & size (make one and copy/paste), each with a text box where I put in the words and changed up the fonts. You'll want to make your words closer to one end of the petal so you can glue an end to the centers without covering any of the words.
Note: once the petals are printed, by holding each page up to the light and folding it in half long ways so the ovals line up, you can cut two out at a time.
I traced circles on yellow paper using a soup mug (that my dad made me in a pottery class) and cut them out.
Then I glued the petals to a blank circle with the words face up (making sure none of the words get covered) and glued my 'Be' circle on top (to make a petal sandwich).
I also made one daisy with
