Editorial Guidelines Updated on September 20, 2018 Share Tweet Pin Email Pretty and practical, our ribbon board has been keeping work spaces clean since it was introduced -- and keeping party invitations, postcards, and photographs organized and easy to spot. What You'll Need Materials Homosote fiberboard, available at lumber yards. Upholstery tacks Ribbon Linnen Stapler Picture hanger Instructions Have your board cut to size. Pull linen taut around front and sides of board, and staple it to back, securing two opposite sides first, then the other two. Be creative in arranging ribbons in a pattern on the surface. (The pattern at left is modeled after a garden trellis.) Use upholstery tacks to secure ribbons. Tuck your cards behind the ribbon; you'll need few, if any pushpins. Screw a picture hanger to the back, and hang the board on the wall.
