I made this for my Mom for mother's day, the ribbons are in the colors shes going to paint the living room. Here's how to make it.

Heavy fabric
A frame - I used the kind you buy at the craft store to pull canvas over for paintings.
Thumb tacks
Sewing Machine
Hot Glue Gun

Step One: Pin the ribbon on the fabric. I eyeballed it and used a ruler to double check the spacing. Don't pin too close to the edges of the fabric, because you'll be sewing along them.

Step Two: Sew across the edges of the ribbon. Go over each one a couple of times so they are secure. They'll have to be tight to hold photos. Don't remove pins.

Step Three: Sew on the buttons. I used 13 and my sewing machine to sew them on. I also tacked them in place before sewing using a tiny dab of hot gule. Don't remove your pins until done.

Step Four: Attach fabric to assembled frame. I used thumb tacks, and then glued around them using my hot gule gun. I did this for both long sides. You want it to be tight!

Step Five: Fold in the fabric and glue it down like your wrapping a present with paper and don't want messy corners. Then glue along the other two sides like in Step Four. You want it to be tight!

Now you're all done!

Can you make things that will look cute in my apartment? Let's swap!

I once did a board like that using a big piece of cardboard rather than a frame...I stapled the fabric and ribbon to the backside, so I didn't ave to sew it.
