Hi All and welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Thank you for calling in and I am sure you will want to know about our new challenge at Try it on Tuesday where this time you are asked to add layers. Lots of ideas from the team if you need inspiration so pop along and then make anything you like with layers and add it to the entries in the next two weeks. You could be chosen as one of the top 5 and be asked to be our guest in the future. Can't wait to see what you make.
I made a French Memory Board. It is something I have wanted to make for a long time but never got around to it until now.
The rest of the post is full of pictures on how I made this so stop here if you would rather not know. The project has about 9 layers if you count the sticky tape, staples and glue
I used an old canvas picture, some wadding, material, string, various ribbons, brads and some wall paper
The material was pinned on top of the wadding at the corners to get the shape. Trim off any excess but remember to leave enough to cover the sides and to leave enough to fasten to the frame underneath
Pull the material fairly tight and staple down
Add string or whatever you like to make a hanger for the finished Board
Now arrange the ribbons and pin at the sides. Leave enough to staple underneath as you diod with the material
I used up bits and bobs of ribbons and some were only just long enough so make sure you have plenty of ribbon
Turn over and make holes where the ribbons cross
Push brads with longish backs through the holes
Open up and push down firmly
Cover up the 'mess, with paper or material. I used wall paper and my glue gun
This is it finished and on the conservatory wall. Definitely a few mistakes but I did enjoy making it
Have a great day
Love Chrissie xx
