Vision Board

Well it has been a while. So I decided that the first project of the year is  Vision Board. I plan on using it exactly what it is intended for. The cool thing about this project I had 90% of everything. I only had to get a couple of items to complete this board.

For this project I used foam cord board. It was something I had from another project that never got used. I started by covering it with batting. To make life easier I used spray glue to attach it. This makes every thing run more smoothly.

I decided to add herbs to the board. I used a mix of rosemary, lavender, cinnamon and ginger. I sprinkled them on top of the batting. Then covered it with the fabric before I flipped it over to secure the fabric to the wrong side.

Then I secured the fabric with glue. My reason for this is simple. I attached the ribbon by staples. So I felt it made more sense to glue then staple. Than to staple everything and it worked out quite nicely.

After I attached the ribbons I wanted to secure them where they crossed each other. i used fasteners to do this. I first poked holes just under where the ribbons crossed. Then attached the fasteners. This actually makes the board look nicely quilted.

After That all that was left is to cover the back. I like having a finished look. So that is why I fabric'd the back. But you certainly don't need to if you don't want to.

So this is the finished product. I had a lot of fun with this project and can't wait until my next one.
