Have Yourself A Merry Little Hop

Welcome to the December 2015 Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog hop! We're so happy that you're joining us today. We are featuring Christmas this month, and I will be featuring an easy DIY Christmas present. 

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 1 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Jennifer at Jenny G Paper Crafts. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Now, how about some DIY fun? This French Bulletin Board was so quick and easy to make.

All you need is a 12 x 12 Cork Tile (I found mine at our local stationary store), your favorite 12 x 12 Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, your favorite Stampin' Up! ribbon, and your favorite Stampin' Up! brads.

I used Crystal Effects to glue my DSP to the cork board. A word of caution: go easy with the Crystal Effects. I was spreading it with a sponge, and thought that I wasn't getting enough, so I poured a whole lot on there, and it caused my paper to bubble a bit.

Once your adhesive is dry, then place your ribbon where you would like it. I used the mini brads to tack it to the edges of the board, and then used the Antique Brads to make my pattern on the front.

After you gift it to your favorite person (or keep it for yourself), they can fill it with cards, pictures, artwork, or more!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you can put this to great use, especially if you have some last minute gifts to make! It's now time to head over to check out what Diana has to share with us today!
