A gift for Mr.Tracy (a huge Dallas Cowboys fan) who was kind enough to get me some free pallets to craft with.
Hope he likes it....

I decided to make room signs for the kiddos (also know as my little lovies).
The oldest wanted her name and isnt the biggest fan of bling, so her's is a little more 'subdued'. The younger two got lots of bling & family nicknames on theirs to hang in the room they share.

1-Styrofoam ring ($3.99); 5 -1/4 yard of various patterns of fabric (round about $5); 1 spool wide ribbon ($2); 1 spool narrow ribbon ($2) - you can decide what width you like best, I went w/ 1.5 & .5.
Ok - on to making the fabric rose:
It should look something like this. Although each rose looks a little different (which is nice, makes them unique)

First, the supplies. 1 - 11x17 unframed cork board ($5); 2 spools of ribbon ($2 each); wooden (sold already blue glittered up) peace sign ($.99). Total cost of supplies $9.99! (I ran out of ribbon, but improvised, so I suggest getting 2 spools of ribbon #1).
Sooo, this is what it looks like once you are to this point IF you only bought one spool of ribbon #1 and ran out & had a random spot of cork board showing in the bottom left corner like I did. But since I was in my PJs crafting, I decided instead of making another trip to the store, I would improvise.
Add a strip of ribbon #2 at the top to make a border & apply a wooden 'flair' piece if you so desire. I then added a piece of ribbon #2 at the random spot of cork board showing... but wasn't satisfied with the result.
So, I made a little 'tac holder' with ribbon #2 and (you guessed it) hot glued it into place!
Voila! Peace sign cork board. Miss Madi said it was the "most awesome cork board" she had ever seen in her WHOLE LIFE - and after 10 years of life & shopping with me, I'm sure she has seen more than her fair share of cork boards ;)
Hubby will hang on the wall securely with 3m poster holders.
Total crafting time = 38 minutes
*This project took about 2 1/2 hours to complete.
