This was my inspiration from Save On Crafts site w/c, btw, has great deals on wedding things! http://www.save-on-crafts.com/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.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/83403/burlap-ring-bearer-pillow-diy. They also have a skeleton key burlap style as well if you're interested.



I utilized this instruction: http://www.everycreativeendeavor.com/2011/11/burlap-message-board-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.houseofhepworths.com/2012/03/05/diy-burlap-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. grouphug.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
