Memo board - 1st post in 2012

Wow... one of my resolutions involved posting more frequently on my blog ..and before I know it, it is already 9 days into Jan when I post for the New Year !!!

This is one project that has been on my mind for some time...  a Memo board... of course, I looked into a few that I could buy, but the crafter  in me, could not resist making one , especially since I saw this tutorial. 

I found some more sites with tutorials...
 Like this one on Little Miss Momma 

Mainly , mine was an attempt at recycling.

I used a cardboard that came with a  artist's drawing pad . I had some left over rolls of sponge sheets from over a decade. The maroon cloth is a dupatta that had seen better days .

The only new things are the ribbons and the pins . at the back I glued the ribbons and also stitched them on to the fabric .

So one ticked off from the 'try to make' list ...!! Only thousands more to go...!!


  1. I made some of those a few years ago. They are a nice way to display photos, and postcards. Nice job!

  2. Absolutely, Susan... I had fun making this :) I am going to use it as an inspiration board for my craft n jewelry making ...
