I made a cork board out of old wine corks that I had been saving over the years. That I hung over my desk to keep track of appointments and other business cards that are import to have at reach.
First I hot glued the corks to a paint stick
Once I had all the corks on the stick I filled in between each cork to make a solid foundation.
I made two strips of corks
Once I had both paint sticks filled with corks I placed a third paint stick in the middle and glued that one to the underside edges of the corks. Next I hot glued a ribbon so that I could have something to hand the cork board from.
