Look at this thickness! This would be fabulous for pins!
Ok brief departure, how cute is Natasha?? She was showing how these big pieces semi-connect. she's my little helper!
Ok back to business... Yes they were divided into 4 parts so I had to glue them together to make an actual board. So sealed them up with good old hot glue!
I got some fabric from my fabric stash (wahoo!) and simply put it under the board and cut around making sure I had enough to touch the back.
Add some glue (not hot glue, I just used a general craft glue)
place the glue side to the wrong side of the fabric and start wrapping like a present. I used hot glue for this part.
Not start addint ribbon. I had this pink ribbon in my stash and a lot of it so I just started to add diagonal lines.
First before I show the finished product, here's the before picture of my desk.
And now the after with my board. And yes the ribbon is a tad off but they will be once I start adding stuff to the board so they will strech.
I hung up my board on the back of my desk using those 3M stickies that don't damage walls. They are super strong and are still holding up the board now! I had 2 more square pieces of the same type of cardboard that I also covered with the same material that I use for craft spaces. They come in handy for when I was embellishing bras for dance and needed a higher surface to rest them on. Sorry do not have an after picture! :( but you get the drift. This project cost $0!!! And I have used some of my stash! Yay! As always thanks for reading! :) Have a great day!
