Following the success of the last work Away Day in November, this week we had a Summer Away Day. I'm still a member of the People Forum and so got roped into helping with all sorts of activities, including running a plank challenge!
However, my favourate activitie was the bake off, or more making the rosettes for the bake off winners.
I found a very helpful online tutorial on how to make paper rosettes which I followed. Although I did have to modify the design a little as the end size of the rosette in the tutorial was 6 inches across! Which is massive and way too big for what I wanted.
After a bit of experimentation I manage to make a smaller sized rosette - more like 4 inches across, which was perfect. A bit of paper folding and some work with my glue gun later and I had four perfect rosettes.
They even made the trip to London without any major incident and everyone loved them. Even my department director commented on them!
For something so simple I will definitely keep them in mind for any more award type things I might end up involved in.
