Cre­ate your own cork­board for pin­ning cards, re­minders and to-do lists

Papercraft Inspirations - - CONTENTS -

This is a fab­u­lous up­cy­cling pro­ject! Sim­ply col­lect lots of corks, find an old pic­ture frame and back it with hard­board. Cut the corks in half or into slices with a ser­rated knife or a ju­nior hack­saw and with a pot of wood glue you are ready to cre­ate your own cork pin board.

Ar­range the corks within your frame to de­cide on the best lay­out be­fore stick­ing. The corks make great em­bel­lish­ments, too. Colour them with ink pads, add pat­terns with per­ma­nent marker pens or even carve them to pro­duce sim­ple shapes for stamp­ing with. Any cork slices for dec­o­rat­ing are best rubbed on a piece of sand­pa­per first so you have a smooth sur­face to work with – es­pe­cially im­por­tant if you have carved any to stamp with.

Julie has dec­o­rated her board with stylish cork em­bel­lish­ments, which would be ideal to use on your smaller makes – or an ac­com­pa­ny­ing gift card, per­haps?
