Before I came back to school this past week I decided to jazz them up a bit (and also cover the up chipped corner). I pinned this picture up on pinterest a while ago, and I decided to use it as a bit of inspiration.
1. 4 cork-board squares
2. Scrapbook paper (I got a pack at Christmas Tree Shop for super cheap)
3. Modge Podge
Step 1: Measure your paper strips
Average scrapbooking paper is about the size of the cork-boards, making it easy to cut. First, draw a line down the center of the paper going diagonally.
Next, measure 1 inch out on both sides and draw parallel lines. The strip is 2 inches wide.
Now move out 1.5 inches out from each line, draw another line. This will be the second strip. Make this strip 2 inches wide as well. Measure out 1.5 inches out again and draw a line on each side. This time, the strip is only going to be 1.5 inches wide.
|- 1.5"-| 1.5" |- 2"-| 1.5" |- 2"-| 1.5" |- 2"-| 1.5" |- 1.5"-|
Step 2: Cut
Lay four sheets of paper on top of each other and cut all paper strips at once.
Step 3: Position
Line up the paper strips on board and make sure they line up.
Step 4: Glue
Using modge podge, put glue on bottom of each paper strip and then over the top of it once you lay it down.
Step 5: Let dry flat
The boards can curl when drying, so put something heavy on top of them.
