Cork & Post It Message Boards

I spent a good part of my day today working on items to sell at the Markets at Shrewsbury as well as the Etsy shop I am getting ready to start. Once I have the Etsy shop up and running I will put a link here on my blog so you can visit it.  In the meantime, one of the items I worked on today was my message boards.  Here are pictures.



  1. Becky, how big are each of these? I’m trying to figure out the size – are they as big as a message board/corkboard one would hang on the wall? Or are they more appropriate to have, for instance, by the telephone to take messages? Very pretty, no matter what the size! 🙂

    • Hi Laura!

      The message boards are 4″ x 6″. They have a magnet on the back so they’re great to hang on the fridge for quick little messages to family members or phone messages. Thanks for your comment!

  2. I love those! You’ve inspired me to make some or even have my club gals make some! They would love it!

  3. What a lovely idea to include the cork shapes! Did you run them through a die cutter (if so, which one?), or did you hand-cut them?

    • Hi Sophia,

      Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! Cork board is actually very easy to cut using the Big Shot and the bigz type dies! I was so amazed at the easiness when I tried it the first time! Thank you for asking!

  4. Hi Becky,

    SO cute! Where did you purchase your corkboard?


  5. We love ours! I hate to have things on the front of the fridge…don’t like the clutter…but this is perched above the water/ice dispenser. It’s been great for jotting down upcoming events/tasks/appointments/etc., since we usually forget to check the calendar regularly. Love it!

  6. Recently came across a suggestion, tested it, and found that it works very well–use straight-post earrings instead of push pins or thumbtacks on a corkboard. The posts tend to be a little long, but a good pair of wire snips takes care of that little issue. This is a great use for pretty post earrings for those of us who don’t have pierced ears or for those single earrings that have lost their mates!
