Inspiration Board

A snippet of the very large inspiration board in the studio. We used cork tiles to cover a small wall, almost from floor to ceiling. I rotate all sorts of things in and out: images, vintage notions, flowers, etc.

Great idea–I definitely could use a larger inspiration board (the ol’ bulletin board is just too small! lol). Out of curiosity: how did you attach the cork tiles to the wall?

The cork tiles we bought came with little adhesive tabs to stick them to the wall. We got them at an office supply and they were fairly inexpensive. I think perhaps rug tape (the stuff you can use to keep rugs from sliding around) might also work.

This is a great idea, I usually use double-sided tape and the wall my desk is up against. I worry about damaging my scraps, I’m not sure if holes or tape are worse. Things are getting a little out of control at my desk so I’ve started a book to hold all the idea clips.

Oh, I LOVE the inspiration board, and I don’t really sew! I’m looking at it and thinking I can use some of those things in my giftwrapping!
