Don’t ask me how I came up with this project, because to be honest I have no idea. Minds work in mysterious ways. As soon as I saw the picture of the fan- (which has been hanging in my house for about a year now due to lack of creativity), I said to myself, “Hey Kendall, that’d make a good photo board”. And yeah, so what if I talk to myself, we have great conversations. I tried describing the idea to my husband, and he had no idea what I was talking about- but now, now he loves it.

Here’s the finished product:
Here’s what you need:
1. Stickers!! Any kind you want!!

2. Fabric (about 1/2 yard depending on frame size)
3. Fabric scissors, or whatever you have.
4. Ribbon, any color- I used the teal.
5. Batting (usually $4.99/yard @ craft stores) I used scraps =)
6. A staple gun (and extra staples)
7. A hot glue gun

This is the before, remember I said this was hanging around for 1 year, yuk!

Step 1: Cut batting to size of picture ( I double layered mine)

Step 2: Use your handy-dandy staple gun and attach into framing of picture.

Step 3: Lay out Fabric flat on your floor and flip the picture over onto fabric.
Step 4: Again, using your staple gun, staple fabric into frame.

It should look something like this when you flip it back over.

Step 5: Measure and cut ribbon.
I measured three inches up from the edge, made a small mark on the fabric with a pen,
and then align the mark with the ribbon.

Step 6: Use your staple gun to staple down the ribbon, I used a bit of hot glue for extra security.

Step 7: Repeat for opposite side.

Step 8: Measure 4 inches up from your corner ribbon and make another line,

repeat for opposite side stapling and gluing the back as you go along.

Step 9: Do the other corners the exact same way.

Step 10: Make a giant X in the middle of your board
(See how the ribbons match up at the top & bottom of the board? This is your guideline!)

Step 11: Add Photos!!
Step 12: Remember those stickers? At every point in which the ribbon crosses, add one!


Step 13: Sit back, relax and look at what you just made!!!
