Ribbon Bulletin Board

Monday, November 10, 2008

---I knew I wouldn't be able to put any new posts up with the new baby home, so I did a few before the new baby came, using Blogger's feature to publish posts automatically for a date in the future. ((Just so you aren't wondering how I am able to do this with a newborn!))---

I wanted to have a bulletin board in Shugie's room, but I didn't like the idea of using thumbtacks in there - so I made a ribbon bulletin board. The intersecting ribbons give all the pictures a place to rest.

fabric to cover the front of the b/board plus enough to wrap about 4" all the way around
heavy-duty stapler, staples

This is just a regular bulletin board from Target:

I got some nice seersucker fabric and wrapped it all around the front, and made giftwrap corners on the edges - then stapled it all in. If you use a striped fabric like this, you have to be careful that no areas are stretched any harder than others or else it will look wavy on the front:

Here it is so far:

Next, I stapled the ribbon in at each corner:

Kept going:

I've had ribbon bulletin boards before where the whole thing makes a diamond shape, but I wanted something a little different this time so I added some vertical strips of ribbon too:

Here it is!:
