Make Not Pay: A Decorative Pin Board

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. The plain cork variety just screamed college dorm --so not my scene. I used some decorative push pins and la-di-da decorative paper I had to jazz up a $10  cork board from Walmart:

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

  1. This is fabulous! And, what a great use for the small pieces of wrapping paper I haven't thrown out for some reason. I really love the pocket idea, as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Thank you Lisa P! So wonderful to hear I paid the inspiration forward. :>)
