Glendale Matias from Oasis Church in Los Angeles, California brings us these various paper-inspired women’s event elements.
The theme for their conference was paper. They choose to use the material that was readily available to them (Recycled paper, cardboard) and make elements to decorate the conference with. They had 4 large areas that they were tasked (Stage, Green room, Resource (Store) area and outside gathering spaces) using the recycled paper theme.
For the stage, they constructed the word LOVE and skinned it with corrugated cardboard. The structure was built out of wood using chipboard and 1×3 wood strips. They cut two letter shapes to build one letter, then ‘extrude’ the shapes with the 1×3 wood strips. they later skinned it with corrugated cardboard from past projects. Each letter was 4×4 feet.
This area they made paper strip hearts and hung vertical garland. Took the conference theme colors and integrated this within the centerpiece decor. They built this space up entirely using fold up table and chairs, pipe and drape and some interior layout design.
Tube Wall (Outside Space)
They were fortunate to find a vendor who donated several hundred tubes. They cut the tubes in 24″ sections and assembled them together with bolts. They tested a bunch of different patterns and found a pattern that worked engineering-wise with the different sized tubes (6″, 8″, 12″, 24″). Once assembled, they painted the inside the colors of the conference. Tube walls were approx. 4×8 feet.
