Present for my Grandma, thanks to Karlee Krafts

I put out a shout to Karlee to figure out how she made the card holder/ wall hanging she my her BFF, seen on My Pink stamper.   She was so sweet to respond and send me to the video she made.  So I pulled some fabric I bought 4 years ago on clearance to make a gift for my grandmother.   She was complaining about not having enough space on her desk for the cards the kids and I make for her.  Elvis is her favorite, so I hope she likes it.    The only thing I did different was I used 2- 1/4in pieces of foam core together instead of buying a cork board.   I love it and going to make some more for gifts.   

PS:  easy to make 
cover foam core with batting, tak down in back with staple gun
cover batting with material and tak down in back
then just pulled ribbon around front in diagnal motion.  did right to left, then when doing left to right, I fed it over and under previous ribbon.   very easy and only took and 1/2 hour.
