TRES TRES CHIC...

(insert french accent here)...wanted to share something i whipped up earlier this week...it's a french memo board!...i've been wanting to try these for awhile and finally got off my derriere and did one...of course...in true greenbean fashion...i had to put my own spin on it...so i went the whompy way...

Photobucket

super duper easy to do!...i recycled an old canvas...pretty sure it was 16" x 20"...but of course any size will work...took some batting and double layered...to give it that puffy look...stapled that on...then trimmed the excess...attached my fabric...again...trimmed the excess...believe it or not...my fabric started out as a baby curtain i got at target on clearance...now...for the ribbon...traditionally...it will go in a lattice type style...but since i'm not traditional...i went in my own pattern...then...at the intersections of the ribbon...i used brads...with a petite bit of bling...but you can use buttons...flowers...whatever you want!...and voila!...one magnifique french memo board!...
