Forgotten Stash

I was working on reorganizing the closet in my stampin' quarters yesterday and came across a package of cork trivets I had purchased several months ago.  I'm sure you understand ... one of those things I saw that I thought "hey, I bet I can do something wonderful with that!", and it magically jumped into my shopping cart.  Once home, it was put into the closet where it was quickly buried forgotten (I prefer to believe it was hiding from me).  With the holidays quickly approaching I thought I would finally take some time to play and see what I could come up with ...  

CORK MESSAGE CENTER - CLOSE UP

... a nifty message center!  On the left side is a dry erase marker board for those quick little notes I'm always needing to jot down, the right side is a mini calendar and bulletin board.  Lucky me, I just happened to have some push pins that color coordinated with the Stampin' Up! Cottage Wall designer series paper.  I cut the prongs off of a jumbo white grommet, attached it to some ribbon and used it as a hanger.  Below is a picture of it hanging proudly on display!

Hi Joyce, this is really great. I could really use this for my Xmas gift list. Would you be willing to share a tutorial on how you made this? Unfortunately, my creativity is not as good as yours. Thanks for sharing this wonderful project and your inspiration.

Joyce, this is a fabulous project. I'm participating in a Farmers Market this winter, and this would be a wonderful gift item to sell. Where did you buy the cork trivets and small whiteboard? A tutorial would be really helpful.

I have this same trivet and now I know what I'm going to do with it thanks to you!
Love this idea!
Just a question, What are the ribbon loops down the center for, pens? Thanks!

Hmmm....it is hard to remember what it looked like before you "enhanced" it! I have to remember to buy the same things you do when we shop! I am so inspired by your creativity! This is phenomenal! Great work as always!
