This great project for a padded fabric and ribbon inspiration board comes to us from Allison of the ever-inspiring Petit Elefant. Using fabric which matches your decor, create one for the kitchen or the crafting corner in your home.
I decided 2009 was the year for me to have an inspiration board. I’ve seen them all over the place, I love them and I’ve wanted one of my own for a long time now. I’m a fairly crafty person, so I thought I’d just throw some materials together and see what I came up with. I’m really pleased with the result.
First I bought a piece of fiberboard from Home Depot for around $3.50 and had it cut to the size specifications I needed, I measured the wall next to my desk beforehand so I knew exactly how much space I had to work with. I believe the board was 4’ x 6’ so I have plenty leftover to do a board for my daughter’s room.
Next I went to my local fabric store and selected some beautiful fabric. I’ve seen Inspiration Boards with plain backgrounds, but I wanted mine a little sussied up so I went with a really pretty home décor fabric in a color that I love green. I think I got maybe ½ yard, and it was on sale so it cost me about $4. I bought some ribbon in the same fabric store so I could see how the colors looked together great, if I may say so and I was off.
I think the ribbon was around $2. I also picked up some batting meant for a Christmas tree skirt; it was on clearance for something like .20 cents but any quilt batting will do. So all in all I was out less than $10 for the whole project. And it’s custom made so I love it. Easy peasy.
Now you’re really done.
Now hang it on the wall somewhere you can see it every day, and tuck in your happy little mementos. Enjoy!
