Cover cork tiles and pin pictures and fabric swatches – or anything that inspires you – to them.
You will need
• cork tiles (300 x 300mm)
• fabric remnants
• double-sided adhesive tape
• pinking shears
1 Place a cork tile on the fabric and trace the outline, adding on a ruler width so that there is enough fabric to fold over to the back.
2 Cut out all the fabric squares with your pinking shears and iron them. NOTE Cutting with pinking shears prevents the edges fraying.
3 Place the first fabric square right side facing downwards on your work surface and put the cork tile precisely in the centre of it.
4 Stick a long strip of double-sided tape to the top and bottom edges of the fabric square, fold the fabric neatly over the tile and stick in place.
5 Fold and stick the two side edges in the same way, ensuring that the fabric is taut and that the corners are folded neatly.
6 Cover all your tiles in the same way. You can stick the tiles to the wall with thick double-sided tape (like that used for mirrors) or with Pattex No More Nails.
