Question about Screen border ?

I just build my first screen and I'm having a hard time finding cheap velvet or felt in my town to use for a 2" border but I did find at my fabric store 2" velcro tape (the fuzzy side) and at the craft store 2.5" velvet ribbon and was wondering if either of these would work for the border ? This is my first screen as well as my first projector (Benq w1070)

Thanks

This is about the lowest cost best quality black velvet http://www.syfabrics.com/View.aspx/P...Velvet/681/264. The velvet ribbon might work but I am not sure that you would be able to attach it in a good way.

Thanks for the link but I'm in Canada and ordering from there would take awhile I'm looking for something quick and my town has very few things to choose from that's why I asked about those 2 things it's all I could really find and my projector is showing up tomorrow and my screen is all good to go except the border. When I build my next screen I'm going to make sure I order online for border materials didn't think ahead and just figured I would be able to find something easy but turns out all I can find is the velcro or the velvet ribbon. I thought I would ask here and maybe find someone that had tried either of them.
