DIY Cork Photo Board

Has COVID-19 got you strapped for cash?

Is someones birthday coming up and you don't know what you're going to buy?

Here is how I created a memorable birthday gift for $10.00

What you will need:

  • $8 cork memo board from Kmart

  • $2 push pins from kmart

  • Metal ruler, cutting mat and a stanley knife OR

  • Scissors

  • A printer

  • Paper

Step 1

Gather together the photos you would like to use (I pinched my photos from my friends Facebook page)

Step 2

Lay them out in a design program - you can use Word or Publisher, I used Indesign.

Step 3

Print them out. I printed mine on 300gsm paper on my A3 printer at home. If you don't have a printer at home you can take your file to Officeworks and they will print it for you - just make sure you save it as a PDF file first

TIP: If you don't have access to a printer, you can use things you already have such as - a letter from your friend, a concert ticket, movie tickets, plane tickets.

Step 4

Cut your photos out using the cutting mat, metal ruler and stanley knife (or scissors.)

Step 5

Place your photos on the board how you would like them, this may take a bit of fiddling and overlapping to get it right.

Step 6

Once your happy with your layout - pin them down with the push pins!

You're done!
