A Bulletin Board Alternative: French Ribbon Memo Boards

Shari won my heart; she tells us that making a French memo board is "entirely easy" while also posting a picture of one she made - and a list of the ways she went wrong - because "the world needs to know how not to make a French memo board."

For those of us without a bit of the crafting gene, buying a memo board would be a better option. I mentioned Texas Susannie's Christmas memo boards a few days ago, but of course she makes many more; that's one of hers above. She also sells on iOffer.

This is an awesome post! I'm not a DIY girl at all, but the links you provided are SO helpful. If I buy a board, I'll send you a pic.
