  1. Iron the fabric before it is put on the board
  2. Lay the fabric on a flat surface,lay the board on top of it.
  3. Take the sides of the fabric pulling tightly on all sides,secure to the board with the tacks. fold the edges neatly like a present.
  4. Flip over when it is secured to add the ribbon.take the ribbon ,cut the lengths needed to make a diamond like pattern,making sure the ribbon will go to the back to be serured down.
  5. Once you have it cut wrap it around the board diagonaly to make your pattern,tack it to the back with thumbtacks.
  6. Useing tacks lets you be able to change out the fabric and ribbon when you want to.You can also use decorative trim instead of ribbon.
