Cork boards are great to help keep life organized, but they can be so boring and uninspiring! It’s time to change that. When you take a functional item like a cork board and put it with a craft project of inspirational qualities, you get a custom bulletin board kit that inspires you each day while keeping you on track.
Organization doesn’t have to be blah and institutional. Inspire yourself every time you’re reminded about things to do and important dates. Then you can spread that positivity to everyone you come in contact with. Who knew decorative cork boards could be so inspirational! This bulletin board kit is the perfect crafty way to get you engaged with your inner inspiration and then put it in your space to see and say out loud any time you pass by. If you love crafting and filling your space with positive influences or know someone who fits that persona, this is the DIY craft kit for you!
IT’S A DIY CRAFT KIT
This is a CRAFT KIT not a finished piece, for you to put together and customize however you want. I enjoyed designing this bulletin board kit and giving you all the pieces. But now it’s your turn to handcraft a project that will mean so much more than any store-bought item. Put on your crafty hat and get painting, glueing and creating for a craft project that will leave a lasting impression and actually mean something to you. When you pour your own creativity and time into something, it just means more!
We all have that little creative spark inside of us, but that doesn’t mean you want to come up with a project idea from scratch for every occasion. Not to mention the tools and machines needed to bring your design to life! This is your opportunity to take a handcrafted project kit and DIY your way to a custom, one-of-a-kind crafted piece to inspire you every day or give as a gift (either the kit itself or you make it for them) to someone who will appreciate a little positive inspiration in their own space.

Cork Board Care & Instructions
An amazing naturally sustainable material, cork is durable and self-healing. Recommended pushpin length of 6mm (~.25”) or less. All pieces are laser cut (cork is hand cut) and ready for paint/stain and assembly. Depending on the temperature and humidity when shipping, the 1/8” birch frame may become slightly bowed when you open your package. Don’t worry! Once you glue it to the cork board, making the project 5/8” thick, the strength of these pieces together will straighten out your project so you can start pinning. Use a strong bonding agent to glue the layers together. Consider placing weight on them as they dry to encourage an even adhesion across the entire surface. I’ve used Gorilla spray glue, construction adhesive, super glue, and wood glue to complete my craft kits.
All inspirational word cutouts are shipped in their cutout sheets with removable adhesive tape to hold them in place. This is designed to create the sturdiest, safest method for shipping, so your custom wood word art arrives ready for you to create with.
All materials are natural and unpainted/unstained. I recommend painting all the pieces first and then assembling your project. That way you don’t have to worry about smearing any colors or smudging your design. And for even more protection when you are finished, a clear spray coat (but NOT on your cork board, just the birch frame and word cutouts) can seal your whole art piece for years of enjoyment!
Order Fulfillment & Shipping
All orders are custom made to order. I make it when you order it, so it’s first come, first serve crafting. Since all orders are handcrafted by me, Jaime, processing times can be anywhere from 1 – 2 weeks depending on the number of orders in line before yours. Shipping waste matters to me, A LOT! All shipping materials are 100% recycled and either recyclable or biodegradable themselves. I want you to enjoy your inspirational craft supplies and not fill up your landfill in the process. Mother Nature is one of my biggest inspirations, so anything I can do to make her smile, the better!
