Inspiration Board Tutorial~


Inspiration Board Tutorial~

Supply List: picture frame {no glass}old or new, scissors, cardboard the size of the frame you are using, felt{several pieces}, Helmar 450 Quick Dry { what I used}, trim, material, decorations if you like, clips.

1. Cut one cardboard to fit the inside of your frame and glue on several sheets of felt {for padding}~ takes a few minutes to dry~
2. Cover the felt board with your choice of material~I used a piece I had.
3. I cut the corners in a "V" and then glued it down and clipped one side~then pulled to tighten and glued that side and clipped down.  The glue lives up to it's name~ quick dry!!
4. When all sides are glued down ~ glue the other piece of cardboard on the back and secure. Mine had nails to hold the cardboard in place.
5. Stamp the back~to make it yours !
6. I tied tulle around mine and added some stick pins, for color!


 I would love for you to link me up when you get yours done~I'm sure it will "rock"!!!!
Thanks for stopping in today and enjoy "creating today"!!!
