I think at last I have developed a fool proof method of doing this. I thought it was time to share what I have discovered. This tutorial is quickest, easiest, neatest method for displaying hoop art that I have come across. (honestly its really easy) Just follow the simple steps below.
Thick mount card (step 1)
Wadding (step 2 & 6)
Double side sticky tape (preferably 15mm wide) (step 4)
Fabric scissors (Step 3)
Card cutting Scissors (Step 1)
Copydex glue. This is a Latex based glue and is perfect for this job as it is good for sticking both card and fabric. It seems to dry quickly, is not messy to use and has a strong finish. (Step 7)
Ribbon for hanging.(Step 8)
1. Firstly prepare your card and wadding. Mark out the size of you backing card on the mount board with a pencil. Use the inside of the OUTER hoop as a guide then cut out with your card cutting scissors. This may be a bit tough if the card is thick but the thicker the card the sturdier you finished work will feel. Do not use you fabric scissors as this will destroy the blades.
