Canvas, any size (I use 30cm by 40cm)
Fabric of your choice
Wadding (I use Medium)
Ribbon at least four metres for this size
Step 1. First take the canvas that you want to use and lay it face down on the wadding, cut the wadding with at least three inches extra all the way round.
Step 6. Now is the time to add the ribbons, staple the first edge of the ribbon on the back, then put across the board in a diagonal direction and staple down at the back. Continue till you have finished putting them in the one direction.
Now do the same with the ribbons from the opposite direction making sure you weave the ribbon over and under the one that is already secured.
You now need to staple down some ribbon on the back in order for you to hang it; I always use five staples on each end of the ribbon to secure it.
You are now finished, hang it up and decorate as you wish!
