    Saw this exact tutorial on another blog site and she used the Command velcro strips to hang them. Easy and no holes in the wall!

    P.S. These do look great so I want to copy your idea, just not sure how to then hang them. :)

    How did you then attach these to a wall, to use as a corkboard? Does the fabric (overlapped on the back) get in the way of attaching the cork to the wall?

    I have the (bare) cork trivets glued to a door, but even without the fabric on the back some of them want to fall off and I have to re-glue. (And I only use them for push-pins.)

    Love these!! Thanks for the idea. I have some cork trivets and fabric scraps and these would look cute in my office.
