Walnut Hollow Message Board May 3, 2013

This week Tombow’s Design team will be showing our favorite creations with Walnut Hollow’s high quality wood products.  If you have come here from the Tombow Blog then you’re on track!


I created an Idea Board with Walnut Hollow’s new message board. It measures 16″ x 12″ and is ready for decorating using Tombow Adhesives and gluing down materials such as cork, cardstock canvas and embellishments. I love the Walnut Hollow products as they are always a perfectly even and smooth surface to decorate.


I used MONO Multi Liquid Glue to adhere a cork panel to the large section of the board. I also created little pockets by cutting canvas diamond shapes in half and gluing in place with the Multi Glue. Both the cork panel and canvas diamonds, as well as the hardware, burlap and embellishments are from Canvas Corp. These little pockets are perfect to place found materials or a little cash quickly onto the board.



The top of the board was covered with cardstock using the MONO Aqua Liquid Glue. A perfect glue for decoupaging cardstock to wood with no wrinkles! It also adhered the piece of burlap to the board and the decorative twine and jute. Thanks to Jennie’s fabulous technique shown on Tombow’s Blog posting ‘Back Then’ The embellishments were added using Power Tabs and Foam Tabs.


Another fun detail was making penny push pins – super easy with some thumbtacks and Power Tabs to adhere the penny instantly with a strong bond.
