Default Comic Book backing boards + fabric = gorgeous shelves!

I have never heard of using comic book backing boards with fabric - take a peek at the picture below. You can buy these at your local comic book store or on Amazon or eBay. They are acid free and economical.

A pack of 100 run around $10.00


The fabric starts folded selvage to selvage then fold it in half to the selvage again. fold over the board and use straight pins to secure

thought I would share

Great way to display your fabrics! You can really see them all by using the boards. Thanks for the tip.

Yup, this is how I've done mine and I love it! Some brands of boards are thicker than others, and watch the size if you are buying on the internet. I really like "BCW magazine Boards 8.5 x 11" 24 pt. board". I cut some of mine in half for pieces smaller than a yard.

Wish I had that much fabric, but I'm working on it.

its alot cheaper than the plastic board I purchased and you don't have to take the time to cut it.
