i had this old ugly looking bullitin board in my room.  I wanted a french memo board but couldn't find any.  i finally got smart and brought fabric to make some pillows AND use on the board so my room would match.

To make the board i cut the fabric to fit and secured it with tacks.  to make the crosses i used ribbon and secured it with silver tacks where the ribbon crossed.  I glued matching colored rhinestones to the silver part of the tack.  It's a great way to get an inexpensive board that will match your room and your budget.
sorry i dont have pics but it should be fairly easy to imagine.

on this board the tacks dont have rhinestones.  the good thing about doing it on a bullitin board is that if the paper doesnt fit in the slots u can always tack it on!

Ohh, I like the tack idea to hold the ribbons in place. I think I'll do that, but I'm too lazy to add fabric to the actual cork board.  Tongue
