I made one of those bulletin boards that are covered in fabric and you can tuck the pictures behind the ribbons.  I dont know if there is a specific name for them.

this is made completely from scraps i had laying around, a sewing machine, and a ton of hot glue.  I stacked a ton of layers of news paper on top of a piece of cardboard to make it thicker and kind of soft.  I thought of using quilt batting but i just stuck to the stuff i already had.  Then i pieced together some scrap fabric on the sewing machine, and covered the board with it, I used hot glue to glue the fabric down to the back of it.  I used some lace stuff instead of ribbon because i had a ton of it, and i hot glued them to the back also.  then i hot glued another piece of cardboard to the back of that to cover all the glued fabric mess.

the pictures slip under the ribbons(lace)

the back

i also hot glued some wall hangers on it. not very professional looking but it works

that is so neat I wouldn't want to cover it up!  Cheesy
I like your idea of the picture hangers on it. Has it lasted? I wondered about the hot glue and metal? I don't think I'd have thought about using them on the back.

I love, and in fact I thought of this very idea yesterday while looking for something to decorate the baby room with.
Has the wall hanger things lasted? Or did the weight of the board eventually make in tear loose? I was thinking of just putting a ribbon or lace hanger on the back.
I really like the scrap fabric you used.
