this is a memory board i made a while ago to display vintage family photos.
after a trip to atlantic guesthouse byron bay i used it to display photos to remember a special holiday i had with my daughter.
that's another story...
i used a linen type fabric with beige and white striped ribbon, i like how the photo colours contrast with the fabric.
to make a memory board
you will need:
notice board piece (hardware) cut to size with saw
fabric to cover - allow 20cm extra to wrap around board
1 layer wadding - allow extra 10cm - habidashery supplies
ribbon- measure diagonal lengths-extra 10cm to secure at back
short flat nails
strong wide tape
1.lay fabric front side down, then lay wadding on top.
2.place board in the middle.
3.wrap wadding and fabric around board (need someone to help with this part)stretch fabric so it lays flat at front.
4.secure at back with short nails and wide tape.
5.arrange ribbon in diagonal lengths leaving enough to secure at back with short nails/tacks.
6.add notice board type tacks to front where ribbon crosses.
7.fill with favourite photos or postcards.
i'm planning on making another one of these but much larger using blue and white striped ticking fabric to use in my kitchen for postcards, business card and other stuff that accumulates on the kitchen bench.
do you have a favourite holiday memory?
