My question is (if I'm on the right track with everything above) is what do you use to secure the ribbon in a criss cross pattern through the batting and the canvas? I guess what I'm going for is like those picture boards you see at Hobby Lobby. Any help would be appreciated!
Sounds like you are wanting more of a memo board. I have made a bow board using the canvas but I didn't use batting. And I hot glued the fabric. Maybe try using scrapbooking brads to secure the crossed ribbon?
