Project Share - DIY Memo Board

Hey guys! Today I'd like to share with you a really quick project I just completed. I wanted a memo board so I can display some items that are important to me.

These memo boards are super easy to make and most importantly, really fun!!

Cork Board (Mine is 17 X 23)
1 YD of Fabric & Batting
Staple Gun (I STRONGLY recommend using an electric staple gun if you have the option)

This project took me about 45 minutes to complete.

1. Wash, dry and iron your chosen fabric.
2. Lay fabric (right side down), batting and board on the table in that order. (Bottom to top)
3. Begin to pull tight the fabric and staple on the board. DO NOT staple on the back of the cork area. Make sure to staple in the border around the actual board.
4. Once all fabric/batting is securely stapled, begin laying out ribbon. Some people choose to use hot glue to secure the ribbon, but I did it with my staple gun to make sure it stayed.

I did not take pictures through out the process, but I found a web-site that shows similar steps to what I did.

I hope you take the time to make one for yourself. It is a super quick, reasonably priced project that can really add to your space.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Happy crafting!!!
