DIY fabric-covered bulletin board frame

Here'a a quick little project I made... 

And here's how I made my fabric-covered bulletin board...

I used an empty 8 x 10 Ikea frame I had
& a bulletin board I got from the dollar store for $1.25
& some fabric from Walmart that was $2.00

All I did was remove the piece of cork from the cheap dollar store frame.
Then I cut it so it would fit inside my frame.

Next I used my glue gun to wrap the fabric around the piece of cork & the piece of cardboard that was also in the dollar store frame.

Once I put it all together in the frame, I added one of my t-shirt pom pom flowers to the corner. 

Now I have a handy little home to keep little things that I need, like tickets,wedding invitations, photos, etc!

It took less that 10 minutes, including time to iron the fabric!

And it cost less that $4 to make!
