Christmas Ideas . . . . Part 2

Standard

I sooo wanted a new way to display my Christmas cards.   I had this old bulletin board down in my basement and some fabric left over from these wall displays I did in my kitchen (another story). So I went and bought some batting, covered the entire bulletin board with the batting, then covered that with my fabric, just staple gunned it to the back.  Bought some velvet ribbon and these great buttons that look like metal but are actually plastic. I stapled the ribbon onto the board and then also where it crisscrossed.  I clipped the backs of the buttons off with nail clippers and then hot glued them to the cross-sections. Sooooo simple and I just love how it looks!
