Crafty Girls ~ Memo Board 17

by Shelley

Does your daughter seem to collect memorabilia?  You know, like programs, pictures, letters, cartoons, and ideas on millions of scraps of paper?

This week we will make a memo board so our girls can keep track and  display their memories… with out the holes in walls.


What you need to make a Memo Board:

  • What you need:
  • Plywood/old painting canvas
  • Staple Gun
  • Fabric (we used 1/2 yard for 2 boards)
  • Batting (use quilting batting)
  • Ribbon
  • Buttons (if desired)
  • Hanging hardware

 How to make Memo Board:



First you need to measure you fabric and batting to fit your board. You will want a few inches on each side.
Next we used quilter’s spray on glue (spray outside it stinks) to stick the batting to the board and the fabric to the batting.


After both layers are “glued” on, flip it over and stretching both staple it to the back of the board. Try to staple evenly all the way around (mom you may need to help more with this).



After trim off the excess fabric and batting, make sure you don’t go to close to the staples.


Then take your ribbon and lay it out on the front of the board. Be creative with your design or just to a crisscross, your choice 🙂 Make sure your ribbon has excess on each side. When you get your pattern start with one Ribbon piece and lay it down and then staple the ends to the back of the board.





After you have stapled all the ribbon in place you are ready to hang it. You can use the picture hanging hardware or just the command hooks. Now your daughter has a place to put her pictures.
