A roll of cork board
Hot glue gun
Vacuum (you're gonna need it)
Initially I wanted to use JUST the cork board, but it was on the thin side so it needed some extra thickness. That's when I turned to this Styrofoam. There was a ton of it left over from my daughter's giant doll house we put together. I knew it could be used for something, and this was it!
First I free hand drew a flower peddle on the Styrofoam and cut it out with a knife.
So with all that cut out, now on to the cork board.
Simply trace and cut.
I hot glued the Styrofoam to the cork board.
* (I recommend using a regular glue for this step since the hot glue melts the Styrofoam, and gives off fumes).
Any one up for an oatmeal cream pie? :)
On to the fabric.
These vibrant fabric sheets I picked up from Joann's, which was actually my first time there, can you believe it?
I was happily surprised that in the fabric section, they have a nice variety of squares of fabric for $2, perfect for crafting!
Again, this step can be substituted for another type of glue.
After fabric is attached to the cork, cut around at least ½ inch of fabric.
Then snip all the way around.
Use Mod Podge or glue down the sides.
Complete & cute!
This project turned out a bit lengthy - this was my first go at it, and I'm sure there can be substitutes and shortcuts made.
