Step 1: Materials

Cork roll or sheet
Hot glue gun or super glue
41 Pennies

If you bought a roll of cork and plan to glue before cutting, then put something heavy on the edges.

Glue the first 25 pennies to the cork

Glue in rows, do not glue a square out side them fill in

Step 4: 2nd Layer of Pennies

Glue the last 16 pennies so it is a 4 by 4 square

Using your knife or scissors, trim the original square base so you cannot see the cork
