Queen of Bulletin Boards

I have been giving the name "The Queen of Bulletin Boards" for some time now. You might say I enjoy making them. I made two of these memo boards.

 I used to different kinds of ribbon and glued them to the checked fabric. Underneath is a large square cork board.


 I drew the large fleur de lis on index cards and painted them gold.  I added clear glass beads, gold beads and wire and glued them on.



The smaller fleur de lis I made using a punch cutout by Anna Griffin. I found another company who sells similar ones.

How I made the fleur de lis push pins:

 I spray painted the ball head straight pins gold. Then I glued them to the gold beads. When they were dry I added the smaller fleur de lis to each one.

 Here I used the white ball head straight pins and no gold beads.
 
I hope I've inspired you to make one too!
 
Happy Crafting!

Dee

This color combo is pretty and the fleur de lis is a unique touch. It's one I'd want to keep neat and for special items.
