A few years ago I bought a package of round cork trivets from Ikea because I thought they would make perfect memo boards. Well, last weekend I finally tackled the task, and here is the result:
Supplies (all Stampin' Up!® except "Other supplies"):
Card stock: Whisper White
Accessories: Basic Gray stitched grosgrain ribbon, 7/8" and 1-1/4" scalloped circle punches, Brights buttons, Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon, white baker's twine, Sticky Strip
Other supplies: Round cork trivet, hot glue gun
I think it turned out pretty cute! And it was really easy to make. I arranged four pieces of Basic Gray stitched grosgrain ribbon in a crisscross pattern across the front of the trivet. Using hot glue, I adhered the ribbons to the trivet just at the four places where they intersected; that way you can slip your notes under the ribbons. Then I glued the ends of the ribbons to the back of the trivet. For the hanger, I cut a longer piece of ribbon and glued the ends to the back of the trivet. (So the back of the memo holder isn't cute, but then the backs of my projects are rarely cute. You should see my counted cross-stitch.)
Now that I have one memo holder done, maybe I'll be motivated to finish the other two (a girl can dream, right?). Thanks for stopping by!
