My father's day gift went off pretty well. My father collects ball markers (usually they have the golf course's name on it, some kind of snazzy detail, etc) and I noticed he just had them placed on his golf ball frame/shelf. You couldn't see them very well and his collection was growing.
Using a record album frame, 'make your own corkboard' corkboard squares, black foamcore, some ribbon, and a small (lame) painting job -- voila, I made him a framed ball marker board.
Cutting the foamcore to use as a mat frame around the corkboard.
See? Also cut the corkboard to fit within the foamcore frame.
Yup. It fit!
Covering up the edges with a green ribbon. Also, painted in the corner of the corkboard portion. Let it dry before you put the ribbon on. I also used a gloss coat over the acrylic - it just looked way too dry on the corkboard.
I also added a second corkboard square to the back because some of the markers have longer pins and would need the thicker back.
