Project of the Week - Cork Boards

I ran across this idea this summer. I love to stick up a few of my favorite photos on cork boards at school. Why not make them look cute? I know this isn't a very good picture, but I think you can get an idea of what they look like at least. This is what they look like without any pictures on them. Here's what to do if you'd like to make a set.

4 square cork boards (they come in a set at target and walmart)
fabric (enough for 4 13.5 inch squares)
hot glue gun and hot glue
heat and bond fusible interfacing
iron and ironing board

Cut the fabric into 13.5 inch squares. Follow the directions on the heat and bond and fuse the fabric to the cork board with an iron. Pull the fabric around the cork board and hot glue it to the back side. Cut some ribbon and hot glue it to the back as well and you're finished. Very quick project.
