T-shirt or uniform jersey, trace its outline on a large piece of cardboard, and
cut out the shape with a craft knife (parents
2. Cover the entire cardboard
shape with cork panels, using double-sided carpet tape to secure the cork. The
cork won't fit exactly, so trim the excess with a craft knife or scissors, then
use the scrap pieces and more tape to fill in the sleeves.
3. Decide which side of the
jersey you'd like to display and cut the shirt down the middle of the other
side. Stretch the jersey taut around the cork form and use thumbtacks and more
carpet tape to affix the cut opening to the back of the cardboard.

board with Fun Tacks. Transform a handful of old-fashioned thumbtacks
(ones with flat metal heads) by with cool sports beads or buttons. Simply
hot glue the bead/button to the head of the thumb tack.
