In recent years, pin boards have gone the way of scented candles: fancy schmancy and overpriced. So recently when I wanted one (in another bid to be better organized) I decided to make my own.

I use the folds created by the diamond-placed pieces of paper for tucking notes and what-not in addition to pinning items.
