Day 1 Class: Creative Cabins
Camp is a busy place. There are places to go and campers to see. Keep track of all you have going on with an easy-to-make memo board.
Fabric Memo Board by Megan Hoeppner. Supplies Fabric: BasicGrey; Cork: IKEA; Ribbon: American Crafts; Button: Creative Imaginations; Thread: Martha Stewart Crafts; Adhesive: Therm-O-Web; Other: Staple gun.
Here's how to make one in minutes:
1. Cut a piece of fabric slightly larger than the circumference of the cork. Note: The cork I used is actually a cork circle I picked up at IKEA.
2. Wrap the fabric around the cork and use a staple gun to secure it in place.
3. Adhere ribbon around the edge of the board and hang it in place.
Warning: Falling in love with fabric is easy to do, especially when some of your favorite scrapbook companies have turned their beautiful patterned paper into equally wonderful fabric. (The fabric I've used is from the BasicGrey "Sultry" collection. Yum!) I'm happy to report, however, that small swatches of fabric known as "fat quarters" (a quarter of a yard) can be purchased for only a couple of dollars, so at least it's a relatively affordable addiction. ;)
