I absolutely love being organized, but to be honest, I’m kind of a messy person. So I’ll go through phases where I get really organized, then things get kind of crazy, then I get my act together again, etc. It’s a work in progress!

My desk is one area that really needs attention. It’s tiny, so the least bit of paperwork totally clutters it up. This DIY Custom Memo Board was the perfect organizing solution!

With back to school season in full swing, I thought it would be the perfect time to share it here, too. This project is great for anyone, but I especially love the idea of using it in a dorm room.

Use this cute memo board to hold odds and ends, like business cards, gift cards, tickets, and notes that would otherwise get lost.

Then, carefully press the fabric over the glue. Repeat on the opposite side of the tile, pulling the fabric taut so it lies flat.

This was one of the last projects I made with my old glue gun. Look at that thing … ha ha! It lasted 20+ years and went through a lot with me (countless burned fingers), but my new glue gun is a definite upgrade!

For the painted squares, start by taping a border around the outside edge of the tiles about 1/2-inch wide.

About 1/2-inch from this border, add another row of tape on the inside of the tile. When you are finished, you should have a two separate layers of tape with a plain cork border in between.
