3D Cork Board Tutorial!

My mom is always giving me great craft supplies. A while ago she gave me some peel and stick cork paper and a few days ago she gave me some cork boards that she never got around to using. I just knew they were meant for each other! :O) So I thought it would be fun to make a 3D flower pin board. Fun!






And so easy! Just cut and stick. You probably already have a cork board lying around. But I thought cork paper would be hard to find. But then I discovered that you can buy cork shelving liner at Lowe's, Walmart, Etc...cool! You could make all kinds of designs with that.



(Click the photos to get to actual size pieces.)


  • Print out the pattern pieces (or free-hand your own) and cut out 4 of each size. 
  • Then peel off the backing and lay them on your cork board, beginning with the largest petals. 
  • Finish it off with a small circle in the middle.


Ta-da! A new pin board. 


I use it in my craft room as my real-life Pinterest board. :o) 'Cause sometimes you find inspiring things that aren't on someone's website. 

I also keep track of cute little snippets with clothes pins and this little piece of doweling: 

Don't like flowery stuff? Try cutting out the letters of your last name, or a word (like "LEARN" in the kids' school room) or just make polka-dots! There are tons of fun things you could do. :o) Have fun!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love you so much.

  14. Such a great idea - I esp love it because sometimes cheap cork boards aren't deep enough for an entire pushpin. Thanks, Disney, this is a little spark of genius!
