Reposting this from 2009. I have had questions about this and just decided to post it again.
For a little pink...and black project let's visit my daughter's room!
In her room we put together a bulletin board similar to the one in the Kids Pottery Barn Catalog! The individual tiles/squares were 29.99 a piece in the Pottery Barn catalog.... We took scrapbook paper and the cardboard on the back of scrapbook paper tablets and made our own version for less than 10.00.
So... we used 9 pieces of scrapbook paper, and 9 squares of cardboard (from the back of the scrapbook tablets) for stability. We used tacks to hold the corners down.
It is difficult to tell but my daughter put black rhinestone stickers on top of the tacks to dress it up a little better.
She got these pink Christmas lights and draped it around the bulletin board..I like it better without the lights but.....

Last I bought wood trim and a mitre box from Home Depot with a hand saw.
I'm not allowed by hubby to use an electric saw because I'm a pianist and he says he doesn't want to take any serious chances with my hands!
If you have any questions please email me. I'd be happy to answer your questions.
