Recently, I decided I needed a bulletin board above my desk. My husband has a huge one above his desk which is behind mine so I would always just turn around and look at his calendar and baseball schedule etc. I have been looking and looking for something large enough but didn't want to spend a lot of money. I decided to take this great frame with the canvas already in it, and put cork board in it.
I have had these cork pieces under my bed for about 2 years and when I remembered I had them and found them, a piece was missing from the corner. I knew I could fix that easily. I made sure that six tiles would fit and then inked the edges. I wanted them to stand out a little more.
Then I took two of the kids lunch sacks and cut out circles and layered them on top of each other. Waded them up and crinkled them. Inked the edges and glued a button in the middle. I hot glued that perfect paper flower right over the tear in the cork. (I'm sorry about the blurry picture. I found out I shake when I take pictures and didn't have the tripod handy. I'm working on my photo issues.)
I hung it above my very ugly but useful desk in our office area upstairs. I thought it would be best to take a picture of it before I clutter it up with all my reminders and notes.
Total cost for my bulletin board......$4.59 for the package of cork tiles.
