Would you believe this memory board was made from a birthday gift bag? Well it is. I knew I wouldn’t find a memory board with my color scheme within my budget and I couldn’t find fabric that I liked to make a traditional padded one. I found the birthday bag at Target and the canvas I got when I purchased the three for the world map.
I cut out the needed size from the birthday bag and mod podge it to the canvas.
Since it was covered paper I put a couple of layers of mod podge to protect it.
Once dried I used a staple gun to attach the ribbon along the edges.
Then used furniture tacks to hold the ribbon in place. I used small pieces of cardboard and hot glue to hold the tacks in place where it was only the canvas.
This is such a cool way of doing a memory board and I will be on the lookout for other cool bags or wrapping paper to make another one in the future. I can’t wait to start putting memories on it!
