One evening a few nights ago, a terrible thing happened to this crafter; I ran out of hot glue.
It happens to the best and most prepared of us. More often to me, as I fall into the “least prepared” category most of the time. But there was no need to fear – a trip to town for more glue sticks was less than 24 hours away.
In the meantime, I still had a box cutter and several boxes of corks at my disposal. Turning one of the corks on its side, I sliced into it and created a few disks from a single cork. Even alone, I thought the cork disks were very cute and had massive potential, so I saved them.
A few Google searches and a failed trivet later, I stumbled upon a group of cork magnets on Etsy. It was a wonderful idea, but poorly applied. The cork magnets already listed were, frankly, a little bit boring.
I knew I could spice the idea up and take some great photos to boot, so I gave it a shot. The collage above, in no particular order, is the result of that effort!
I decided to divide the magnets into sets of four that each had 1 long half cork and 3 disks each.
I then named the sets and listed them for sale at my Etsy shop!
Go check them out if you’d like – as for me, the homemade chicken soup is done and The Big Bang Theory just started so I’m signing off! :)
