Feeling Kind of Corky?

I had this idea for quiet some time and decided that a Valentine teacher gift would be the perfect time to create it. I used cork board...bought from Walmart in the office supply department (around $5 for five 12 x 12sheets)...thumb tacks, buttons, red tacky tape, bottle cap, clear circle stickers, punch, dp paper, black stazon to stamp my image from MFT, and ribbon. I stamped my image in the corner...*side note* its a really good idea to practice stamping your image on a spare piece of cork board, then added the red tacky tape to my buttons and stuck on the thumb tacks. I punched out my circles for my bottle caps which were purchased at StampAntonio...but you can just ask the hubby to save some tops when he pops a top again...I did have some clear circle stickers that I put on the paper to give it a nice finish. Next I tied my ribbon on the frame and assembled. It was a very easy project to do. The hardest part of this whole project was getting the cork board to sit in the type of frame I had bought.
