French Push Pin Memo Board

~French memo board ~
This one is for sweet Barbara who asked me to make one for my Etsy shop.


I glued two cork boards together and added a wood backing. Then I covered it with batting and a checked fabric.
The push pins I made from straight pins that I spray painted gold. I cut/stamped out the small fleur de lis using a stamp punch. I put the two together and created the push pins.


I used two ribbons.  
 A satin green and a linen white to match the check green fabric.


The large fleur de lis is topped off with beads.

Dee

I like the formality with the fleur de lis and the friendly with the gingham- great combo.

Wowzers, that's pretty, Dee! I never would've guessed those were push pins. Makes me want to get a memo board; usually they're so ugly.

Pinning on pinterest. :)

Cheers,
