Here I have wrote a tutorial on how I did a makeover on an old cork board noticeboard that I had lying around unused. I wanted to display something that looked a bit better than the plain cork and also practical and easy to use.
- Cork Board Noticeboard
- Glue or double sided tape
- Stapler/Staples or pins
- Plastic Money Bags (optional)
Step 1) Cut out the correct size of fabric (measure against board).
Step 2) Add tape or glue to the board
Step 3) Attach the fabric to the board
Step 4) Measure out the ribbon and lay flat against the board to the positions you want and leave enough length to go around the back of the frame to fasten.
Step 5) You need to temporarily secure the ribbon to the front (use pins or tape) so that you can flip the board over. When laying ribbon on board I used a weave effect so that it was easy to place items on the board.
Step 6) Secure the ribbon at the back of the board either with staple gun or pins. You may need to keep flipping over to check that the ribbon hasn't moved position.
Step 7) To finish off, I then placed some plastic money bags onto the board - secured with a pin (these are great to place small items onto the board that wouldn't normally stay secured - gift cards/business cards/loose coins/buttons etc.
