Default Padded bow boards

I have a general idea of how to make these, but haven't done it yet. I wanted some advice as to whether or not I'm on the right track. Does anyone make them using a paint canvas? I would assume you would cover the canvas in batting, staple fabric to the back and add ribbon. 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!

I have only made one of these (very basic) for a friends birthday present and I used thumb tacs it worked well not sure what everyone else uses though spose using a staple gun or similar would work better or well also.

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?

I've made a bunch using dolloar store canvases. I spray adhesive on canvas,attach quilt batting(that I cut to size before hand) and then staple fabric around to the back. Use same technique as stretching canvas--staple opposite sides as you go to keep everything "in line"(Then I staple grosgrain ribbon etc for clips and organza ribbon or maribou to hang)
It works amazingly well (no need to make frames) and it's really cost effective too!
Good Luck!
