Memory Keeper / Board Tutorial from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! shares many tutorials with customers and demonstrators. If you go to my Stampin' Up! website, you can see many of the projects with photos and supply lists. CLICK HERE

Above is a beautiful projects from Stampin' Up! called a Memory Keeper, Memory Board, or French Memory Board. It will hold numerous photos, mementos, or cards. It looks fairly easy to do too. I thought it would be a great project to pass on to you.

Here's the items you need and the instructions on how to make it:


  • Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon, item #115612
  • Linen thread
  • 5/8" Jumbo brads, item #112533
  • Sizzix Big Shot, item #113439
  • Lattice Bigz die, item #115958
  • Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, item #114507
  • 18" x 18" artist canvas
  • Background fabric (2/3 yard)
  • Push pins
  • Thumbtacks

  1. Adhere background fabric to canvas.
  2. Die cut lattice shapes from fabric using Big Shot and Lattice Bigz die. Adhere to fabric in rows.
  3. Adhere Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon to fabric in crisscross pattern. Attach 5/8" Jumbo brads where ribbon intersects. Adhere Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon around outside edges of canvas.
  4. Die cut six large and six small butterflies using Big Shot and Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. Create double-sided butterflies by adhering butterflies together, resulting in three large and three small double-sided butterflies. Tie linen thread around the middle leaving two long ends for antennae. Attach butterflies to canvas using push pins.
Tip: I picked up this tip from Lisa Richter. She recommends getting a products called Heat-N-Bond to adhere the lattice to the fabric. It is found in the fabric department and is a product you iron on.

I haven't made this yet, but would love to make one. It would be perfect for displaying my cards.
