I love this memory board! I just wish I had used a batting with more loft, so the buttons would look nicer. Since I did not have enough of the purple ribbon, I used a white ribbon with it, which looks fine (better than in the picture!).
Since this is for a girl, it is 11" x 14", and the space between the buttons is 5", big enough for pictures, notes, etc.
I prefer to use canvas for memory boards, along with high loft batting, or double layer of batting. I will upload a tutorial as soon as I have a chance!
My 12-year-old son, Chris, covered the buttons for me. In fact, once he was done, he ended up with a ton more covered buttons for one of his 'own' projects... :-)
Another Christmas gift completed!
