I’ve been a little under the weather this week which has pushed me to slow down and spend some more time at home. So last night I decided to organize my craft room a little bit. It’s been driving me nuts as I’ve just been shoving things everywhere and there’s no rhyme or reason to anything.
I’ve got stickers, ribbons, markers, everything and it’s hard to sort through. I found these wooden sticks that I broke off hangers laying around. I decided to take some ribbon, hang them up and put all my ribbon roles on the sticks. They’re hanging from the hanger bar in the closet.
I also found some square cork boards that I forgot I got awhile ago from the Dollarstore. I’ve been sitting on some photos from the Toronto Food and Wine Show that I’ve been dying to do something with. So I pulled them all out and threw them on the floor and continued my scavenger hunt through my stuff. I’ve got a big box of ‘Stuff’ that I just throw everything ‘crafty’ in.
Got some new Heidi Swap Ribbon from the clearance section at Michael’s the other day and thought, what a better time to use it than with my cork board picture frame I wanted to make.
I laid out my photos in the best way I could find they would fit on the boards and picked the ribbons I wanted to use.
I then started to wrap the ribbon around the cork board to best hold the photos in place. I just had to staple the ribbon to the back of the board. To make sure they stayed as even as possible I used a ruler to measure the ribbon on each corner and to ensure it was placed evenly down the middle on both boards.
I added the photos and put a little tape on the back of each to ensure they stay in place. I’m not sure how well the tape will hold but hopefully it’s enough between the tape and the ribbon.
And below is the final product of the two. Just need to find the perfect place to hang them now 🙂
