gal. I found a regular old cork bulletin board at Wallyworld on clearance for $5. I had some old green burlap lying around from 6 years ago when I was in college, and stretched and used trusty glue gun to glue it around the back. Then I did the same thing with the ivory ribbon. Then I tied the bow and glued that on the top. I love the textured look of the burlap and the feminine-ness (making up words here) of the satin ribbon.
I made the flower push pin by glueing some dollar store flowers and a jewel type button from JoAnns, and then hot glued it onto an extra large pushpin. (I think I will change out my pushpins with the seasons, this one will be for spring/summer.) I put a dot of glue in the center where the ribbons overlap for stability. I like being able to tuck photos, important mail, recipes, etc in there. Also, it's hard to tell, but I have some gift cards hanging on the bottom ribbon. I really enjoy having my things organized prettily over my Mac. How do you organize your desk pretties?
