How to Make Custom Mini Pinboards
- cork tiles — I used coasters that had a decorative paper on the back, or you can pick up cork trivets, tiles, or sheets of cork at most craft/home stores or on Amazon
- vinyl — I used glossy outdoor vinyl since the adhesive is stronger
- electronic cutting machine (optional)
These are so easy and customizable! Just cut the designs you want out of the vinyl and stick it on! If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can cut simple shapes by hand easily with an x-acto knife. I used glossy outdoor vinyl since it has a stronger adhesive, but any kind of vinyl, or even contact paper, should work.
I used some of my favorite Doctor Who designs and sayings, traced in Silhouette Studio. I also customized some simple white thumbtacks with teeny tiny Cybermen, Adipose, Daleks and of course, a TARDIS! When you’re looking for images that you want to hand cut or trace digitally, try searching for coloring pages and stencils — they’re generally simpler and easy to trace.
