SPD – Picture Frame Memo Board

Woohoo! Saw It. Pinned It. Did It is back baby! For this project I had just about everything on hand. I only had to purchase the cork board. So this project was just under $5.00. I was so excited to finally use this picture frame since it has been hiding in my coat closet for a little over 3 years. The picture slots are just under 4×6 so it was hard to get the pictures to not look off when having to cut them down. The fabric was leftover from when I sewed a makeup bag.

Cork Board (I got a package of 4 at Walmart, but could find at craft stores)

Fabric (2 Fat Quarters of fabric should do the trick) Purchased mine through Etsy Shop Ooh La La French Word In Cream and Fleur De Lis in Pink

Glue Gun

Box cutter/Razor, Rotary cutter, or scissors (Do not use a staple gun – it will go right through the cork, lesson learned)


1. Remove the backing and glass.

2. Trace the glass onto the cork board – 3 times

3. Cut out the cork board

4.Cut fabric using the cork cutouts as a guide leave about 1/4″ around to allow to glue (If using patterned fabric make sure fabric is in the correct direction)

5. Glue the fabric to the cork board – cut any excess fabric

6. Place cork boards into the picture frame, replace back cover and hang.

I used this in my craft room but you could also use this in a kitchen. Imagine pinning up recipes you are cooking, menu plan, or a grocery list. The hooks could hold teaspoons, ladles, towels. It could also be using in an office. Where would you use this project?
