Blue Peter presenter for the day…….

large (1)

I am a part of my social team at my work, I make it my aim to bring positivity to the work place. My work place is a very stressful environment and we don’t often get much praise from the management, so I take it upon myself every week to not only present positive news through the centre, but also to bring in activity days and charity days (children in need, sports relief, etc).

This month we have decided to bring in the awards, the titles were chosen whilst I was off but I decided to make them a bit more special 🙂 I therefore thought I would take you through my day. I stupidly missed some photos but I hope you get the jist of them.



I had this idea in my head to get together a little box and make it full of glitter, colours and of course some lovely gifts inside. This is what I started out with, neon card, sprinkles, glitter glue and congratulation sprinkles. Mapping out the designs I started getting going.


This is part way through, I had to do 9 awards. Each category is different, some are unisex and others are for either just male or female. I could see glitter going everywhere, card everywhere and my hands were starting to stick together!! I then realised that one of the “congratulations” packs had “grad” in it, and I thought ooh noo they’re for graduating!! But in the end I just could not be arsed with this lol!


Here is one of the awards, they are being kept in cupcake holder boxes which I got from Poundland. The awards themselves are from a fancy dress shop, these inside have the “congratulations” and as well as this, the card in which they are stuck down to are all individually decorated. Each box contains a mini “champagne” bottle, which is in fact blowing bubbles and finally two packets of Haribo!!

IMG_20140427_195010This is what they will see when they open up the box, as you can see the award is in the window, with each box having a different coloured bottom. IMG_20140427_195045Here is what is underneath the Haribo and Champagne, each one like I said is decorated with lots of glitter, confetti and glue covered glitter. With this one as it was “most knowledgeable” I stupidly ran out of room on the award and its all a bit blurred so therefore I had to add this in.

IMG_20140427_195216Here’s the finished product, I personally love it.

3 hours later, I had finally finished and as you can tell I made a hella lot of mess. I hope to god that there are not any joint winners but if there are I am sure I can make some more. So here are my final designs 🙂

Remember work is work and you need to work, but you also need to play too and have fun with your colleagues and of course praise them.
