Kitchen Bulletin Board

I have seen several bulletin boards made on the inside of a kitchen cupboard door and I loved the idea, so I finally decided to make one of my own.
I used Angie's as an example, but there are more in the blogging world. Here's just a few:



Back to mine...
I tried following Angie's directions and used white glue to attach the corkboard - but that didn't work for me. Looking back, it might have worked if I'd taken the door off the hinges and laid it flat, put on the cork, and weighted it down until it dried. But since I didn't want  think to take the door off, when I tried gluing the pieces they stuck to each other, but buckled in the middle. Fortunately, I was able to remove them without wrecking them so I was able to reuse the same pieces.
What worked for me was some 3M two-sided tape. I don't know how it will come off if I ever want to remove the cork, but I guess I'll cross that bridge if/when I get there.
Here's my finished bulletin board. It makes me happy every time I open the pantry door.

 In the top left corner I used scrabble tiles to spell out "Notes" (going across) and "Numbers" (going down). I backed them with some scrapbook paper before sticking them to the cork.
I wish I had taken a "before" picture - with my hodgepodge of notes stuck up with scotch tape. This is so much nicer!!
