Here are a couple of memo boards I made for swaps.


 I use a stretched artist canvas I get cheap at walmart for the base. First a double layer of batting then fabric of choice and a staple gun. Add ribbons and buttons to hold your notes and pictures.

And finish off the back with ribbon to hid the 50 million staples. I try and use the same ribbon as the front.

***I don't do personal swaps - I was flaked on and it was not a great experience, however I am open to commissions***

Those look great, are they intended for use with pushpins?

I love the black and white fabric on the first board, I think it is very elegant looking.
