Corkboard Christmas Presents

 Corkboard Christmas Presents
by Geli

I wanted to do something for the kids teachers and it'd be a good last minute Christmas present too, if you're looking for ideas.

I couldn't find the right sized cork board, so I made my own. At a cheap shop I bought 3 document frames, about A4 ($2.50 each) and 6 sheets of cork ($2.50 for 2). I took off the glass, glued 2 cork sheets on the backing cardstock and glued on all papers and decorations with Helmar glue. I used the vintage school paper from Graphics45, available at my2angels. The vintage look goes so great with the cork.


The papers I used are:
Calico Kids and 

Here are some details:
(I love this stuff!!!):

a handmade flower with a skeleton leaf:

some orchids:

another handmade flower:

sweet little apple charm:

and yet another handmade flower (I was on a roll) 
with leaves and a felt heart:

So, if you are still looking for some Christmas pressies to make, try some cork boards!

Hi There; a friend sent me over to check out your blog and I am so glad I did. Am stunned at the Tim Holtz Distressed Crackle look you have on your Christmas items. Have ignored it up to now as I have so many disappointing distress mediums on my shelf....guess what I will be buying in!
Also; is the handmade flower on each corkboard a Tim Holtz Die? Just love them.
Kind Regards
