Step 1: What You Need:
-Fabric ( I used excess fabric I had lying around from previous projects, but you can purchase your choice of style at any hobby or general store)
-Hot Glue Gun
-Twine for decoration (optional)
Step 2: Prepping Your Fabric and Gluing It On
I laid out the fabric and cut so that there was adequate fabric on each side to cover the sides. the back isn't particularly important, as it will be against the wall.
I used the spray adhesive to coat 1 side of the cork tile, then placed in gently on the flat fabric. press it down to ensure it sticks. I folded the extra edges around the back and used spray adhesive again. once the cork was all wrapped up, I used hot glue to stick the outer edges of the fabric.
Step 3: Decorate the Tiles
I added a little change to each board to make the unique. the first blue tile got 1 layer of twine and a bow on the side. the white tile got 2 layers of twine and a big bow on top. the purple tile got 1 layer of twine tied in knots in random spots around the sides with a side bow. the 2nd blue tile got 1 layer of twine with loop-dee-loops on each corner.
feel free to let your imagination run with this step :)
Step 4: Push Pins!
there were some buttons with a plastic piece protruding from the back, I simply chopped the plastic off with a pair of scissors (it took quite easily) then placed a larger globule of hot glue on the button back, covering the plastic piece that is not broken, and place the pin on top.
