    This was my inspiration from Save On Crafts site w/c, btw, has great deals on wedding things! http://www.save-on-c.../memoboard.html

     

    I wanted to save so I took advantage of the deals at Michael's Crafts Store on Black Friday and purchased a 24X30 blank canvas that was buy one get one that looks something like below.

    I purchased a burlap at Joann's Fabric that I also used in my ring bearer pillow. Link found here for that DIY: http://www.bestdesti...arer-pillow-diy. They also have a skeleton key burlap style as well if you're interested.

     

    I utilized this instruction: http://www.everycrea...d-tutorial.html for the basic board creation.

     

    I purchased the upholstery tack and string at Home Depot and also got the corkboard from Michaels.

     

    I just hot glued the corkboard onto the canvas, wrapped the burlap around and stapled on the back. I trimmed the excess burlap to make it look neat.

     

    As for placing the tacks, this tutorial helped out a lot since I didn't get to take pictures: http://www.houseofhe...-message-board/

     

    I placed 5 tacks on each side and placed the string across each sides. I copied the amount of tacks they had from the inspiration board and this is how it came out.

     

     

     I glued the string to the back and trimmed it off as well.

      I'll be placing pictures of our parents and grandparents in this for our reception back home.
