Isn't shirring tape the greatest? I decided to try it out after reading on the design intervention blog how easy it was here. She is a master seamstress and has really detailed instructions on how to do cool projects...
It was probably the easiest project I've made. I love the balloon shades from the Simple Shabby Chic line and even though they're relatively inexpensive, my project was around $2 because I just had to buy the tape. I used a full-sized sheet I already had and sewed some ties on the top to hang on these little knobs. The panel has 4 pieces of tape sewn on the backs and I attached the knobs to the wall using double sided screws.
