1. In addition to the supplies above, you will need one framed corkboard and a staple gun.
Create pattern for board cover.
1. Place corkboard on canvas.
2. Mark 3” (7.5 cm) from the edge of your corkboard along all four sides, or simply add 6” x 6” (15cm x 15 cm) to its dimensions to determine cover dimensions.
3. Cut out along markings.
1. Make sure your corkboard is centered on your canvas, with the right side of the board facing the wrong side of the fabric.
2. Begin folding back the fabric toward the back side of the corkboard, and stapling at least 1” (2.5 cm) from the edge approximately every 2” (5 cm) to secure.
Hint: Fabric should be pulled back firmly so that the cover is taut.
3. When you reach the corner of the board, fold in excess fabric as if you are gift-wrapping. Staple where fabric meets to secure.
4. Continue to staple along all four edges.
Attach bias binding.
1. Beginning at the top center point on the back of the noteboard, staple one end of the colour A double fold bias binding.
2. Stretch the bias binding across the front side of your board diagonally, ending 4” (10 cm) toward one side edge of the board.
3. Secure by pulling the bias binding toward the back of the board and stapling.
4. Continue placing bias binding (from the top to the bottom of the board) each 4” (10 cm) apart creating the foundation of a grid on the noteboard.
5. Repeat method for colour B bias binding from the bottom to the top of the noteboard, creating an intersection where the bias binding meets.
Hint: For bigger or smaller corkboards, you may want to increase or reduce the space between bias binding: Consistency is key!
6. Insert a head pin diagonally where bias binding A & B meet.
