Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the drying time for the Mod Podge.
  • 2
    Take the glass and backing out of the frame and begin ripping your decorative cardstock.
  • 3
    Coat an area of your frame with Mod Podge and stick your piece of cardstock to it, coating over the cardstock to flatten it out. Cover your entire frame. (Tip: it’s OK if the edges are not crisp and clean at this point.) Let Mod Podge dry.
  • 4
    While waiting for the Mod Podge to dry, use the craft knife to cut your corkboard to the size of the frame’s opening.
  • 5
    Put your fabric face down on your workspace and place the cork on top of your fabric. Cut the fabric around the cork, leaving at least an inch on all sides.
  • 6
    Stretch and glue the fabric to the back of the cork, making sure the fabric stays tight all the way around.
  • 7
    Cut strips of ribbon and lay them out on your fabric in desired pattern. Glue the ribbon to the edges of the cork/fabric. Once all of the ribbons are glued in place, flip it over and secure the ribbons to the back with glue.
  • 8
    When the Mod Podge is dry, put the frame face down on your cutting mat and carefully cut any excess cardstock away from the edges of the frame.
  • 9
    Place and secure the fabric and ribbon covered cork into the frame.
  • 10
    Write desired sentiment (such as Cute as a Button) on a separate piece of second piece of decorative cardstock using marker.
  • 11
    Cut fun shapes out of a third piece of decorative cardstock. Line the back of the cardstock with lace trim, securing with hot glue.
  • 12
    Determine layout of buttons around frame.
