Using your measuring tape, measure the length and width of your bulletin board. Calculate the area and perimeter for future use.
Choose your background material. You may use paper, sheets, tablecloths, newspaper, or other remnants from former projects.
Cut your material as closely as possible to the area of your board. Staple the material to the board. Trim any excess material.
Using your perimeter calculation, cut and staple the border accordingly.
To find other border ideas, you may use www.google images.com or pinterest. Ribbons, Postcards, Playing cards, Greeting cards, Tickets and Tissue are also great ideas.
Now you are ready to be creative!
