• 6″ x 6″ cork tiles
• Masking tape

• Christmas cards and holiday cards

1. Use masking tape to mask off a diagonal line across each cork tile to prepare for painting (above).

2. Apply several coats of paint on one side of each tile. Dark colors will give you the best coverage and color contrast. Let dry completely before removing tape.

3. Apply alphabet stickers to spell out desired message (below). Attach tiles to wall with adhesive hanging strips then display Christmas cards using pushpins.

    I want to write for minted

    How are you doing?

    I have an idea for an article titled ‘How to Make Christmas Ornaments with Old Jewellery’ for your website. I think your audience would love to read it.

    Would you be willing to take a look at it?

    If not, I can write on any other topic you require.
