How to Make a Tile Corkboard

I decided to make a covered corkboard using cork tiles.  Here’s how I did it!
Step 1:

Gather your Cork board tiles; make sure the thickness is at least 1/4 inch by doubling up on thin ones.

I am using this pack to make 4 double-thick tiles

Step 2:
Lay over the backside of your selected fabric.  Gather scissors (which you already have in every room) and your stapler.

Step 3: Trim fabric, leaving about 2 inches on each side.   Fold over two opposite sides and staple tightly.

Step 4: To make corners, do a double fold as shown.   First, fold over about a 15 degree corner of fabric. Hold in place or staple with just one staple.

Step 5: Then, fold over the rest of the fabric.  The idea is that you don’t have any fabric showing off the left side of the tile.Staple in place. Repeat for all 4 corners and staple as well along the edges between the corners.

Finished tiles!!!  I used the two-piece velcro picture hangers that stick to the wall and to the tile, so that you can get the position just right as well as remove them later.

I tried to use 4 coordinating fabrics.  I bought these as a package of 1/2 yard quilting bundle pieces from the Etsy store “The Intrepid Thread”.  I just LOVE them together!
