Create a cheap and easy Photo Display Board using leftover fabric, cardboard and twine.


– Cardboard – Fabric – Twine – Spray Adhesive (or double sided tape) – Sellotape – Mini Pegs for Photos

Step 1: Cut your Cardboard & Fabric to size

I literally laid my spare fabric down on top of my cardboard and cut around leaving about a 5cm excess beyond each edge of the cardboard.

Step 2: Iron your Fabric

An important step for this project is to iron your fabric before attaching it to your cardboard backing.

Step 3: Glue Fabric to Cardboard Backing

Whatever way you are attaching it the most important part to get a neat finish is how you fold your fabric at the corners.

Step 4: Add your Twine

Rather than measure it, I just tied it around where I wanted it and cut the ends off after I had secured it with a double knot.

Step 5: Securing the Twine with Sellotape

I used rather a lot of sellotape as that is what I had to hand.
