  • Bulletin board with wooden frame
  • Blue acrylic paint
  • Luminescent embossing powder
  • Paintbrush

  • 1-1/4 yards of 5-inch-wide wire-edge ribbon
  1. Paint the bulletin board frame using blue paint and embossing powder. Let dry.
  2. Cut a piece of quilted fabric to cover the cork area. Spray the back of the fabric with adhesive, place it on the cork and press into place.
  3. Cut ribbon to stretch diagonally across the board.
  4. Weave ribbons over and under; staple ends to the frame. Cut ribbon and beaded trim to the edge cork.

  8. To finish, tie a bow of wire-edge ribbon to the center top. Place push pins at ribbon intersections to hold cards.
