I've seen a couple of pin boards around recently and have been feeling guilty about the stuff I bought to make one which has been lying around uncompleted for months.
Last weekend I got round to it and today I had the chance to pick up the upholstery tacks to finish it. It's base is a cork board, so it can be used with thumb tacks, or you can just slide your bits and bobs under the ribbons (which are twill tape in this instance).
Both my boys have versions of these in their rooms and they are fab for keeping hold of all that kiddy paper that just cannot be thrown away, but is ruined in seconds if left within reach. I'll take this to the craft fair and see if any commissions come out of it.
