Mini Reminder Board with Push Pins

So I've had this square piece of cork board for a few years now. It was part of the craft supplies
I inherited from my mother-in-law, may she rest in peace, a couple of years ago.
After hopping along on the My Pink Stamper Blog Hop tonight I had an inspiration to finally use it.

Here are the supplies I used

12" x 12" Cork Board Square

Four pieces of cardstock strips.
I cut mine 1"wide by 12" long.

Mod Podge & a foam brush.

Two Command Medium Picture Hanging Strips

Flat back resins or buttons with loops removed,
thumb tacks and glue gun.

What I did
  1. Cut cardstock strips in 1" x 12" strips
  2. Applied modge podge to the smooth side of the cork board 1" layer at top edge.
  3. Applied another layer directly to cardstock strips.
  4. Pressed cardstock firmly to the cork square.
  5. Repeated process around entire border of cork square.
  6. After strips have dried apply Command Strips to top left & right hand corner.
  7. To make push pins I applied hot glue onto the push pin and then pressed the resinbutton firmly, holding it into place until it had fully dried.
  8. I then used the Believe stamp from the My Pink Stamper Christmas Wishes set and stamped two pieces of white cardstock and adhered them to the top left & right corners.

For some reason I can't seem to link the blog hop on here so I'll just post a link
directly to My Pink Stmapers blog.
