ribbon board

I've been rearranging/decorating my daughters room and made this for her to hang her favorite pictures and artwork (aka scribbles).
It was easy smeasy to make as my kids would say.
The backing is cardboard, I just used a big huggies box and opened it up and stapled it together. You can make it any size this is about 2x3ft.
I put batting on next, you don't need to do this but it gives it a little puff! glue gun that on.
Then hit up Joannes sale rack, they always have cute remnants for super cheap, get some ribbon and buttons to match.
Then just glue gun it all together! I glued the buttons on and the ribbon at each cross, you could sew them on- but that takes effort!
Cute hu!

oooh... very cute... but I don't know where I'm going to get a huggies box :) and I also need it more spelled out, do you use the whole box or cut most of it off?

Liza- you can make it as big or little as you want, and put the ribbon as close together as you want. maybe I'll redo the instructions
