4- 12"X12" cork boards
2- Fat Quarters of fabric 18"X22"
1- spool of ribbon
Stapler filled with staples
Heat and Bond Ultra-Hold fuse (in the white and red package)
Glue (I used fabric glue but wood glue would work even better.)
This is a fun and fast way to brighten up any space! I bought four 12"X12"cork boards from Lowes. (Total price $7.00) I had some fabric scraps a little larger than the size of the cork board but fat quarters from your local quilt shop would work. I cut the fabric 13.5"X 13.5" so I could put it around the cork board and staple it to the other side. Before pulling the fabric around the cork board I did one extra step. I really wanted to make sure that over time my fabric would not sag and droop down off the cork. So I cut 12"X12" of Heat and Bond Ultra-Hold fused it to the back, center of my fabric and fused my fabric to the front of my cork board. Then I stretched the fabric over the edge of the cork and stapled it to the back of the cork board. Finally, I glued the back of the fabric covered board and placed another plain cork board piece over the glue. I stapled the ribbon to the back for hanging and Ta-Da!! If you want to dress up it a little more, use some of the Heat and Bond to fuse a picture onto the front of the board. My inspiration board is done!! I will share some more pictures. I am going to make a Thankful board to rest beside my inspirational board. When you post what you are thankful for having already and what you would like to receive, things start to happen!
