Cork boards as Christmas pressies

Wendy from WOW had put up some awesome cork boards she made for her kids' teachers here and I wanted to do something like it for my teachers too. It'd be a good last minute Christmas present too, if you're looking for ideas.

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:

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