For Christmas this year I made the girls fabric memory boards! I've always wanted one for myself and I thought, what a fun way to put little things up rather than your basic cork board/push pin combo. So I did a little research on what you need to make them and headed to Farmington and Hobby Lobby to get my supplies. When I got there I called Jason and asked him to look up memory boards online and tell me if I needed glue or fabric adhesive or what to get it all to stick and how much fabric I needed and.... well... needless to say I didn't do enough research. Jason was super helpful and looked it all up for me and then called with his info while I shopped for the one thing I did know I needed - cork board.
I eventually made it out of Hobby Lobby with everything and a few weeks before Christmas I made the boards up! It wasn't as hard as I thought and even though I probably didn't put them together properly, I still think the finished product looks pretty good!
cork board, push pins, fabric, ribbon, quilting cotton
spray adhesive is from the Devil....
all sprayed up and pinned to the board
I remembered to iron the fabric before I put it on all wrinkled!
two boards ready for fabric
my fabric cut and ready to attach
all wrapped up like a pretty package
the spray adhesive didn't hold it down so I stapled it on tightly
the ribbons on and pushed in
the pretty fabric covers I glued on to cover the brass push pins
both boards ready to go
