How to Turn a Corkboard Into a Card Holder
Learning how to turn a corkboard into a card holder comes in handy once the Christmas season rolls around again! If you are a crafty person, you are always looking for ways to display the many cards you receive in the mail from family and friends around the holidays. Restructure an ordinary corkboard to get an inexpensive and homemade card holder in no time that fits perfectly in your entry way.
First: Gather your supplies
In order to make your card holder, you need a sturdy cork board. Consider a standard size of 2 by 3 feet, but use any size that suits your fancy. You also need a scrap of fabric, several decorative ribbons, a package of 20 or more nails and a small mallet. Use a staple gun as an alternative to the mallet and nails if you find that easier.
Second: Attach the fabric
Begin by laying the fabric over the corkboard. Use the staple gun or nails to attach it to the board. It is best to drive the staples or nails into the back of the board, pulling the fabric tight as you go. Check the fabric every little bit to keep it secure.
Third: Time to decorate
Use the ribbons to decorate your card holder. Form a border around the edge of the corkboard with a thick ribbon. Attach the ribbon with additional small nails. If you have a glue gun, use that instead. Tying ribbon into bows and attaching them to the corners of the board also adds a nice touch.
