Items you need to make this:
~empty food can, washed and dried
~roll of cork
~white tacky glue
~pen or pencil to mark measurements
~recycled rubber bands (you can save these from store produce)
~scrap wallpaper (you can use ribbon, scrap wrapping paper, a strip of a recycled calendar photo, or any other paper you wish to recycle)
~push pin tacs
I have taken an empty food can, washed it and dried it. I then measured and cut two pieces from a roll of bulletin board cork. You can find the rolls of cork in most stores, near the office supplies. I found a roll in clearance and have used it for many crafts, and I still have some left.
Next, wrap recycled rubber bands around the can to hold the cork secure until the glue has completely dried. I have applied 2 layers of cork. If you wish to add a second layer (it is thin on the roll), simply re-measure around the first layer of cork, because the thickness around will change. If you forget, and your second layer of cork is too short, simply cut a small piece and insert. The cork dries nicely, and you really do not see any cut seams after they dry together.
Next, measure and cut a strip of scrap wallpaper (or paper of your choice), and attach it to the bottom portion of the cork with white tacky glue. Again, wrap it with a recycled rubber band, until it is completely dry.
Remove all of the rubber bands after the glue has dried, and push a few tacs into the cork. Use for yourself, or give as a gift to someone.
