Valentines Ribbon Board

So I saw this wonderful book paper Christmas tree at a Christmas Boutique I did this month. I thought to myself, "OMG that is such a wonderful idea!!" All the craftiness inside me started gushing and I knew what I was going to do!

I found a very old picture frame and decided to make a ribbon board with it! It could be used for notes or hair clips, or whatever you would think! I use them for pictures and recipes and bills. Works very well.

You will start with:
Book pages, glue, razor and measuring device!
Take you pages and cut them to the width you are looking to use. I decided to cut mine using two different widths. I figured that would work for the entire picture frame.

Once you cut the strips, fold and glue them. I stuck them under the book to hold them together while the glue dried. You can see that to the right.

Once all my paper was folded I went and applied primer to the picture frame and then spray painted it red! So glad hubby doesn't yell anymore about the spray paint on the lawn!

While the paint dried I made these corner pieces. They came out pretty cute.

I took the corner pieces and hooked and glued them to the corner's of the frame. Then the process of gluing commenced!

Once I finished gluing all the paper page pieces I found a lovely piece of rope and glued it around the frame. It gave it a nice pop!

Then I took a piece of cardboard and glued a piece of fabric to it.  Then I attached ribbon and jewels to turn it into a robbon board! I LOVE how it came out!

Love it! Make sure you link up your own Valentine's Day Project!
