Sooooo... this week's home pick is...
My husband and I have debated what these things are actually called and, come to find out... we're both right. They've got a couple of different names, but you've probably seen them before and know what I'm talking about.
After finishing some curtains for our church's nursery, I had a bunch of leftover fabric and decided to make two memory boards (also for the nursery). All we had to buy was the plywood. I used an awesome tutorial at the Motherhood for Dummies blog. In case you are wondering what I used for materials, I'll include that below.
Materials I used...
- 1/4-inch Plywood
- Low-loft quilter's batting)
- Pretty fabric
- Staple gun
- 5/8" Covered buttons that I made with some fabric I had and a covered button kit
- 3/8-inch Ribbon (1/2-inch would probably work, too)
- Hot glue gun
I cannot tell you how easy and cheap this project was... and really cute, too! These things are great in just about any room for pictures, to do lists, reminders, etc. They can even be framed (so cute)! Anyway, there you have my very first (of what I'm sure will be many) memory boards. Stay tuned once Christmas time nears for another practical use for memory boards during the holidays!
