Default These Cute Bow Boards

I really need a bow holder or board for my girls, so I have been looking around for ideas. I came across these and really liked them. Etsy :: ExclusivelyByMaritza :: Lavender Gingham with Lavender Jeweled Ribbon Bows Message Bulletin Memo Notice Board 20 by 16
I am trying to work out all the details of planning before I go get materials and start. I think I can figure out most of the assembly, but I'm not sure what she is using to tack the ribbon down at the "intersections." Does anyone know? I would make it with grosgrain instead of satin, but I would probably still tack it down like she did.

I would guess either a push pin or glue which is hidden behind the flower. I would go with glue. The pin might come out. I would put one one set of strips. Then the other, after they are in glued in place I would lift up the bottom strip and glue it to the board, then the top strip top to the bottom, then glue on whatever decoration. hth

I have made those before where I actually put a small "dart" type stitch through the canvas. It works well, and holds up, but is very time consuming.

My mom made one exactly like this to hold pictures, memos, etc. and she also tacked them where the ribbons met. It turned out really cute. I am planning on making one kind of like that soon - when I get the canvas.

If you are using canvas, I would say use brads and then glue the prongs down on the back side so that they stay put. Brads should go through canvas, right?

Looking at her other boards closely, like this one Etsy :: ExclusivelyByMaritza :: Elegant White and Black Gingham Memo Bulletin Board with Silver and Pearl Buttons 16x20
it looks like she does use brads. I don't think she uses canvas though. She says they are "generously padded" so she must have some foam on them. I think she uses wood, puts a layer of foam, then puts the fabric on top, like in the girly things directions. Maybe the brads would stay in the wood well. I'm not sure though because I've never used them for anything before.

I make them and I use the brads and you just push them through the canvas, sometimes they are hard to get through so I would poke a small hole with my exacto (sp?) knife. Hope this helps!

If she uses wood then maybe she staples(with staple gun) the ribbon down and then glues the flower on top. IDK just a thought.
