I’m so excited to be here sharing my cork board calendar tutorial!
I go to school at Seattle Pacific University and just got my own apartment this year that I share with a few friends. I have self-diagnosed OCD and love all things organized and stylish, so I created this big cork board calender to keep me extra on top of things!
I love having my month to month calender, but this one is nice because it’s large and I can only view a week at a time. It keeps me scheduled, but also keeps me grounded, because I can’t look into the future too much! Livin’ life one day week at a time (:
Here’s what you’ll need:
A package of square cork boards (Joanne’s Fabric), cute fabric, accent ribbon, glue gun, paper and scissors.
Cut out a 1 1/2 inch wide strip of fabric and hot glue it to the edge of the cork. Then glue the ribbon on the edge of the fabric to hide any sign of fraying.
Cut off the excess fabric and ribbon. Next, write or type the days of the week. I hand wrote mine on sketch book paper with a thin sharpie. Glue it on in a corner or the middle of the fabric strip.
I chose to put my fabric strip and day of the week at a different place on the cork for ever square, just to add some interest. Here’s the finished product next to my shoe calender!
I can’t tell you how much I love this. Just the other day I was about to flip the TV on and catch some HGTV, but I glanced at my calender and saw I had to take an online quiz! I’d be a hot mess without it!
What a cute idea Michaela.
I love that your project is beautiful and functional — awesome idea!
I think it’s awesome that Michaela’s still in school and makes time to work on projects and blog!
