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.

  1. This is such a great gift idea and the fabric is gorgeous, so colorful and happy. I think this idea could be used in a kitchen, as well as a sewing room, or maybe an office space as well. Thanks so much for sharing. I will definitely make one for several of my children and grandchildren, who I think may appreciate this.

    1. Thanks so much!!! She loved it and actually cried she said when she opened it =)
      I totally agree with you Sylvia, these type of boards are completely versatile.
      I have seen different versions of these for years. I have always wanted to make one and have finally done it and really enjoyed doing it and how it turned out. Let me know if you make some, I would love to see pictures =)
