Make it Monday: Ribbon Corkboard for Bows

For our wedding, I used four frames  covered in Paper Source paper and ribbons to use as hangers for our name cards.

I saw a similar idea earlier this year on Baby Makin(g) Machine and even though E doesn’t have quite as many bows, it would still be better than shoving them all in her changing table drawer.

What you need:

  • Corkboard (or large picture frame)
  • Paper or fabric to cover corkboard
  • Ribbon
  • Duct tape
  • Clear thumbtacks
  • Hook and nails

1) Cover the corkboard or frame in paper or fabric using the duct tape to hold it in place. I used leftover paper from our wedding booklets and a corkboard that was sitting in the basement gathering dust.


2) Attach several ribbons horizontally across the corkboardor frame, again using the duct tape on the back.

3) Attach a hook to the back of the corkboard or frame (if yours doesn’t already have one.)

4) Add clear thumbtacks in center of ribbons so they don’t sag once the bows are clipped on.

5) Clip on bows and it’s ready to hang up!
