Handmade Holidays Blog Hop Day 3!

Handmade Holidays 2014 Hop Logo 

 Welcome to the final day of the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! We hope you enjoyed the projects from the last 2 days! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas. Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We've gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues. Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can "hop" from one blog to another to check them all out.

Hi there, it's Christine.

I am sharing a handmade pinboard with you, that is a nice personal gift that you can design and customize as much as you like.

1) You'll need..
... a picture frame
... cork sheets
... Embossing Powder
... a non-stick powder tool
... Embossing Ink

2) Cut the cork sheets to the size of the back of the frame. (Of your cork id thin you may need to layer two sheets of cork on top of each other)

3) Use your powder tool to prep the cork.

4) Stamp Neat & Tangled's Hope Anchors onto one corner of the cork (keep in mind that the very edge might be covered by your frame)

5) Emboss the image with white embossing powder.

6) Frame your cork

You can also decorate the frame with Washi Tape, Stickers, pearls and ink. You can also add pins and pin a gift-card to the Pinboard. Whatever you and the recipient like! So get out you cork and create you own customized pinboard.
