I made this bulletin board from a ceiling tile (24 x 48 @ Lowe's) and covered it up with fabric, ribbons and buttons. I stapled the fabric to the back, and then glued the ribbon over the raw ends of the pockets to give it a finished look. I hot glued buttons on to clear push pins, to make them stand off the board and that way it is easier to loop things over them. It isn't all straight and perfect, but that is why it is handmade and why I love it
