Bulletin Board
Basic Description Here is an elegant bulletin board that can hold messages, notes, letters and photographs. It acts just like a tack-board, but you don't have to fumble around with push-pins and we think that you will agree that it looks much better. You can customize the colors and the dimension to create a project that fits into its surroundings.

step:       2        

Now that you have all of the tools and materials, we can jump right into the project. First cut the plywood to the desired size. We made our bulletin board about 20" by 24" (50 x 60cm) and this is on the small side. There really is no limit to the size that you can make the board. Make sure there aren't any sharp edges that might interfere with the fabric.
Once the board is cut, you can size the fabric to it. Make sure that you have about 4" (10cm) extra in both the width and length so you can wrap it around the edges of the plywood. If your fabric has a pattern (like ours does) take this into consideration in your planning; make sure that the pattern is aligned to the wood in a pleasing way. During this layout stage, keep in mind that the ribbons will be positioned in a 45 degree angle.
