I found the above cork boards at the local goodwill for 5 dollars apiece. They really weren't even worth that for a bulletin board. The frames were chipping and falling apart. BUT, totally worth it for this memory board project. WHY oh WHY would I pay the full price for something that will be covered??
They look pretty snazzy now!!! Some ribbons, a few yards of fabric, some COVERED buttons with a ton of staples and duck tape on the back........I am feeling mighty crafty!!
