Put a cork in it!

This was the most easy project ever. Ive been collecting corks for about 6 months now thinking I would come up with another project idea. I was looking at them and all of a sudden it dawned on me. I remembered seeing these in a catalog but they were name tags. The name tags were so adorable but very costly. I think they were a set of 6 for $18. Taking their idea and expanding it is how I came up with this project. 

Sharp Knife
Bread Knife
Cutting board
Gloves-maybe work gloves


1. Find your favorite cork(s)
2.Use your sharp knife to cut the bottom so it makes the cork flat on one side and the cork will not roll over.
3. Take your bread knife and cut into the top of the cork (where the picture will go). Make it deep enough that you can insert the picture.  Maybe 1/2 centimeter-use your best judgement. Use a bread knife because it will cut and remove a tiny bit of the cork. This will make it easier for you to insert your picture.
4. Insert picture.
5. Done!

Neat idea. Will pass it on to my daughter who has a princess academy.
