Five Cute Ways to Use Cork Products by Yuki Shimada

Five Cute Ways to Use Cork Products by Yuki Shimada @ shimelle.com

Recently, I have been smitten by cork products. I like its natural color, fun shape, and unique texture. It’s easy to add cork to your projects as cork is so versatile. Today, I’ll share five fun ways to use it with you.

Use as a Photo Mat
I used the Cork Label Stickers as a photo mat. A 4” x 2 3/4” scallop bracket is perfect for a wallet size photo. I just put my photo on the Cork Label Stickers with a small paper clip.

Perfect for a Title Space or Journal Spot
I have decided to use the 4” x 2 3/4” bracket as a title space on my layout. I put a flocked Transparency, tape stickers, chipboard alpha, and alpha stickers on the Cork Label Stickers.

Decorate with Stitches
Cork is so soft, you can easy to sew it. I cut my photo into a round shape and put it on the 2 3/4” x 2 3/4” Circle. I stitched around it with green embroidery thread.

Paint it your Favorite Color
Heart shaped cork is so cute, I added a couple of them to my layout. I wanted to paint one of them in red which I painted with acrylic paint.

Decorate with Brads
Cork Shape Stickers have thickness and the surface is very soft. Here I added three small brads and a large fabric brad to the 1” cork shapes arrows.

    Great ideas! Also cork is light-weight so it won’t add a lot of weight to the page/album. Now I want Krispy Kreme donuts!! YUM!
