Covered Cork Board With Embellished Tacks

Covering this little bulletin board with contrasting scrapbook paper was a very simple project. I originally got the inspiration from Cherry Menlove, crafter extraordinairre.

I believe I saw the idea for embellished thumb tacks from something Martha Steward related, or it might have been another blog. Easy peasy. Just hot glue buttons onto regular thumb tacks.

Here are my supplies, ready and waiting to go!

(Sorry about all the shadows. It was night time when I took the pictures, but it's been dark and cloudy here anyway--no opportunity for great lighting with my limited photography skills.)

Button tacks are so darn cute. I've never seen them before. I am definitely going to borrow this idea. Thanks so much.
