Cut a score line in the cork along using your cutter.
This is how my cut cork squares were arranged. I only needed to use a total of three of the squares. I put all the nicely finished edges towards the outside edge and any sides there were cut and scored towards the inside to create clean lines at the edge of the frame.
Put strips of the double sided TAPE down all over the cork. I made sure to lay strips across a cut edge to help keep the squares from shifting during the process.
Lay the picture frame back on top of the foam tape covered cork and adhere.
Place the frame backing into the frame and secure. This is the step where if you have those little swinging clips on the back, you'll need some give in the cork to get the clips in place. The cork is thicker than a picture, matting and glass but not my much. Even with my foam tape right at the edge, I got the clips to slide it but it took some work with a screwdriver to do it. I'd rather save you the agrivation!
All done and hanging in my room. My son asked me what I was doing and disappeared when I told him. When he came back, he handed me the dress up beads and told me to hang them too! His addition is the red Mardi Gras beads on the bottom.
This concludes this evening's edition of my blog tutorial. I hope you've enjoyed your time and I hope you come back again! If you decide to make one, post a picture of it here to share!
