How to Make a Corkboard Scrapbook
I love creating memory boards, they’re really quick and easy to do, and the smallest amount of embellishments can create something truly stunning to have out in your home.
The best thing about them is that they can be used time and again, particularly if your using a corkboard, simply remove everything from the board and then re-decorate with updated imagery and embellishments.
For my scrapbook I’ve decided to create one depicting all of the adventures out and about in the countryside that my partner and I had had this past year, but you could do it on absolutely anything you like!
1. Start by gathering up all of your photographs and keepsakes and decide on a theme for your scrapbook corkboard. I decided to focus on adventures out and about in the countryside that I’d had so far this year.
2. Roughly layout the images and embellishments that you would like to use on the board. To secure the images in place, use a generous blob of glue to the flat top of a drawing pin (make sure to be extra careful here, as the glue gun will be hot!). Place the drawing pin onto the back of the wooden and embellishment and leave to ‘set’ for a few minutes.
3. Once dry, push your new push pins through the image to secure in place. Make sure you are 100 percent sure of the placement of the push pins, as you’ll be left with a hole once it is removed form the image.
4. Continue making the push pins until all of your imagery and keepsakes are attached to the board.
5. Use embellishments from the sticker and chalk alphabet sticker packs to further decorate and annotate the board.
Top Tip! For an even more personalised board you could use paints to decorate the frame or even the corkboard itself!
Ta dah! My finished adventure corkboard scrapbook!
