    Hello everyone! This is Cassi from The Crafty Crow and
    today I’m going to show you how to make this very easy
    Rubber Band Bulletin Board that makes a great place to
    stash all your summer souvenirs! The board I made is
    10½” by 11″ but you can make it any size as long as you
    use rubber bands that will stretch comfortably across
    your cardboard. Of course, there are an endless number
    of ways to customize it, so be sure to make it yours!

    Materials:
    corrugated cardboard (10½” x 11″)
    9 4″ rubber bands
    wood grain contact paper
    scissors
    pencil

    How to Make It:
    1. Measure and cut the contact paper so it is 1″ larger
    on all sides than the cardboard.

    2. Cut 1″ squares from the corners of the contact paper.

    3. Peel the paper backing off of the contact paper then
    lay the cardboard down in the center.

    4. Wrap the contact paper over the edges of the
    cardboard and smooth it down.

    5. Stretch one rubber band across the cardboard
    horizontally, then stretch the next rubber band
    across the cardboard vertically; continue until
    the board is covered.

    6. You can hang the board by using one of the rubber
    bands on the backside or you can attach magnets on
    the back and it’s perfect for hanging on the fridge!
