2014 December ~ Baltimore Ravens DIY Memory Board

I can finally post the pictures of this cute memory board I made for a Baltimore Ravens Fanatic in my family since she has received it now for Christmas.  You can see the other memory board I made here that has more of a tutorial that I posted a few weeks ago. 

Let me know what you think in the comments below.  

I used 16x20 canvas boards like this but you can use any size you would like depending on the size you want to fill and other things besides canvas boards you normally paint on.  This is just how I did it.

2014 December ~ DIY Memory Board Tutorial

I made this diy french memory board for a dear friend last week and I can now share the pictures since Santa brought it to her house early. =)  

The colors worked out perfectly for her sewing room, so I was really pleased with how it turned out and how much she loves it as well.  I used a 16x20 art canvas with two layers of 1/2" batting hot glued onto the art canvas frame to get the loft I wanted to achieve under the fabric. I would highly suggest buying an electric stapler like this one here on Amazon  it saved me so much energy I would have used with just a manual staple gun going into the back of the wood frame. I also chose a thin ribbon, I wanted the fabric to be the highlight where the ribbon and cute buttons were just the right touches to finish it off.  This was the first one I ever made, I would definitely make these again.  Let me know what you think. 
Here is a link to the newest memory board one I made in the Baltimore Raven's theme.
