This year I decided that I wanted to create a better system for displaying our Christmas cards. In the past I've just pinned them to a ribbon and that worked fine except I was constantly poking my finger. And it was tricky to look at the cards themselves. I saw a few ideas on Pinterest and decided to make a festive board of some sort. I had read about people using foam board but I was at Hobby Lobby and they had a nice piece of cork board. Here's all the supplies I picked up.
The cork board that I bought was larger than I wanted to use so Loren cut the size down for me. After the board was the size I liked I just had to cover it in fabric. I just lined it up (which is extra simple when there's a grid pattern on the fabric!), held the fabric in place, and started stapling. I started the staples in the middle and just continued until the entire side was held in place. Then repeat on the opposite side.
To complete the remaining two edges, I folded the fabric like I would if I was wrapping a gift. After making sure the corners were straight, I finished up the stapling.
