Easy Cork Memo Board
It’s been a busy week here at the Craft Shack. Summer is halfway through and I have organization on the brain! We are in the middle of a huge scale declutter project because we are going to be listing our home for sale soon. There is so much to do! My desk is overflowing with lists and scribbled to-do notes. I had some fun ADORNit Wood shapes that happened to be sitting on that same crowded desk and I decided they would make the perfect memo board for all of those lists and notes. This is such an easy project to do. And it took less than an hour. Sometimes you just have to pause your busy schedule and craft, right?
Besides this easy cork memo board, I’m also sharing a fun mermaid chalkboard over on the Buttons Galore blog today with more Adornit Shapes!
And remember how I said it’s been a busy week here? I’m posting over on the Walnut Hollow blog today as well, sharing an awesome Rustic Farmhouse Grocery list!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Cork Memo Board:
- ADORNit Pointed Bracket Shaped Surfaces
- ADORNit Paper (I used a fun blue paper from the Nancy Jane set)
- Cork Sheet
- Decoupage Glue
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Embellishments (I used pretty sequins from the Buttons Galore 28 Lilac Lane kits)
- Fast Grab Tacky Glue
Paint the ADORNit Brackets with the color of your choice. Even though I was going to be covering most of the surfaces, I wanted the edges and the backs to be painted just in case they’d be seen. Paint the edges at the very least.
Trace the smaller bracket shape onto the cork sheet and cut it out. Use Tacky Glue to attach the cork to the small bracket shape.
Trace the larger bracket shape onto the 12×12 paper. Cut the shape out and use the decoupage glue to attach the page to the large bracket shape. Smooth the paper out on the shape removing any bubbles. I like to use an old gift card or credit card to smooth out the paper.
Glue the smaller shape onto the middle of the larger shape with the tacky glue.
Attach a ribbon to the back of the large bracket shape. My ribbon is about 12 inches in length. I used tacky glue to attach it which worked well. Allow the glue to dry completely.
Embellish your cork board however you’d like! I glued some fun sequins around the edge of the cork board using the tacky glue.
My grandmother made these beautiful ceramic butterfly pins. I inherited them when she passed away earlier this year, and I love them! It makes me smile when I use them and they remind me of her. A pretty place to store all of my lists for the things I don’t want to forget.
I apologize that the Craft Shack Adventures might be a little less frequent for awhile. Getting our home ready to sell is taking up quite a significant chunk of my time currently. I will still share what I’m working on every chance I get! Thanks so much for being here through these adventures!
