Kitchen Corkboard-Recipe Card Holder

I am smitten with my latest project. I found the idea on a new blog I have been stalking. It's called Echoes of Laughter. It's a great blog. I have spent quite a few hours looking it over. Anyways, on with the project!!

I bought these 2 cork board squares at a thrift store a while back for $0.25. I had them stashed away for a rainy day :)
I looked at 3 different kitchen stores for cute recipe cards & didn't find any I liked. I found these cute strawberry ones at walmart for $1.48. They were not easy to locate. FYI they were with the canning supplies.
I dug through my ribbon scraps & found some that matched my cards. I will be adding a few of our favorite recipes to them soon. I used red sharpie & stencils for the "EAT" & stuck some green buttons next to it. I bought the red push pins on clearance at walmart for $0.50.
I attached the cork with plain old Elmer's glue & secured it with masking tape. I let it dry overnight to be sure it stuck good. I am happy with this project. It's really fun to open up the cabinet & see it there :)
