Friday update. Now it's time to show you how I made that magnificent (not-so-)little memo board.
I knew I would need something that could house all of my inspiration and papers in my craft room. I just wanted something that would be pretty and personalized to do it. I knew right away that I would need a memo board of some type. I have made memo boards before and they are SO simple.
The hardest part of this project was finding the right fabric...and frame, I'm quite picky about my frames!
I found this awesome frame at a thrift store. It came with a picture inside, which I used for the backing. I picked this baby up for a grand total of $2!
I removed the picture from the frame and covered it in batting and fabric. For more detailed instructions on this, check out the tutorial on how I made my jewelry holder. Look at this GORGEOUS fabric I got my hand on. It's from Wal-Mart and a half yard costs me less than $5.
I spray painted the frame in Krylon Fusion Spray in Khaki. I allowed the frame to dry while I finished the board.
To attach the ribbon I turned the fabric covered picture upside down. I stapled one end of the ribbon to one side of the board. I then stretched it tight and stapled it to the other side of the board.
Don't think that you have to keep the ribbon in some sort of patter. I really like the scattered and random lines thrown over this very classic pattern. However, if you want to keep your ribbon in straight lines by all means, carry on!
I then put my board with the ribbon attached back into the frame.
Now I was ready to hang it on the wall. I'm so happy with the outcome of this board. It's HUGE, just like I wanted it.
Why yes, that would be a picture of my hubby and I on our wedding day!
That awesome picture was taken my Lauren Mason over at Piccadilly Pictures!
