Easiest of Easels

Another great totally no sew technique!  Gather your supplies


Take the two iunfluffed pieces of board and tape the long sides together.

Tape should look like a capital "I"


Cover the unit with the green fabric.  Tape side of the unit is up!  Fold in your corners to get the fullness away from the edges.  Then center the black ribbon on one end and securely glue and tape in place.



Next comes the felt liner....important...the end without the ribbon will not be glued down!!  
Center felt side to side and flush with ribbon end



Once felt is in trim the felt flush with the edge of unribboned end.


Trim. Measure ribbon about twin inches away from the edge of the unit.  Place a pin to mark.  Trim ribbon out about 1.5 inches. Glue top and bottom of the ribbon end up to the pin.  Fold unit in half and insert ribbon between felt and covered board.  Make sure it is centered with ribbon from other side.  



Use a clip to get a good bond.


Use fluffed board and center your stitching on it.  Then edge it with the gold ric rak.  Center it on top of one side and place a book on top while glue dries.


Legs are beaded pins...slip into the mat board edges.  Use another beaded pin to keep your fluffed bow in place.


Ta da!!!
