How to Decorate a Notice Board

It's important that a notice board stand out enough to capture the interest of passersby so they'll either stop and read the postings or add one of their own. A unique notice board can be created using teaching or craft supplies. To achieve a creative and polished notice board, decorate by bordering off the edges, distinguishing the notice board from any other areas or postings. Use die cuts to create large title text and shapes or images that correlate to the type of listings the notice board is used for or that match the changing seasons and holidays.

Using the border trim, measure the amount needed to span across each edge of the notice board. Use the scissors to cut the trim pieces.

Apply double-sided tape to the back of the border trim pieces, and adhere flush to the inside edges of the notice board.

Choose the text and image die cuts to create the title for the notice board. Use the coloured paper and die cut machine to cut out the text and images.

Apply double-sided tape to the back of the text and images. Adhere the text and images to the top of the notice board, centred below the border trim.

Apply pushpins to the notice board below the text and images to later hold flyers.

Tip

Pushpins can also be added to the four corners of the notice board to help hold down the border trim, if the double-sided tape isn't strong enough on its own.
