My New Display Board

March 22, 2012

I have needed a small display board that is light and portable for a long time and finally got around to making one.  I bought a canvas from one of the $2.00 shops and covered it with the Twitterpated Designer Fabric which is being released on the 1st April in the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue.  The fabric is really pretty and pink, very girly.  Along with this gorgeous fabric we are also getting some beautiful pleated 3/8″ Satin Ribbon.  The ribbon comes in four colours – Pear Pizzazz, Ridinghood Red, Blushing Bride and Baja Breeze – which match the colours in the fabric.  So I used this ribbon to decorate the board as well.

I used various other ribbons available in the Idea Book and Catalogue to tie bows onto the intersections of the Satin Ribbon.  I also covered some buttons with some of the Twitterpated Designer Fabric and also the Timeless Portrait Fabric.  I attached these to the Satin Ribbon intersections using Whisper Whtie Bakers Twine.  I also used Whiser White Bakers Twine to add a few other buttons at various intersections.  I bought some mini wooden clothes pegs and decorated them using the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper so that I could add cards to the board.

I also attached a couple of flowers that I had previously made from the Timesless Portrait Fabric.

I think it turned out lovely and now I have a great way to show off lots of product as well as a few projects.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
