Okay, so this probably wouldn't have taken me eighteen thousand years to make if I weren't so focused on making it fancy-schmancy. I'm annoying like that.
This bulletin board is actually pretty basic. Take a coaster, cut it into a rectangle, back it with cardboard because probably it's going to be sort of flimsy. Remember those bamboo slats from yesterday? You can make a workable frame with the scraps. What I did is I used two slats that are still attached, so I could curve it around the edge of the coaster and cover up any raggedness. Trust me, there probably will be a little bit of raggedness.
It took me forever to find the shade of purple that I wanted, and it's still not 100% there, but then I painted some gloss over it and I'm more chill about it. For scale, the shortest side of the bulletin board is slightly shorter than a standard pair of tweezers.
And the pins! These are just regular pins, cut with a wire cutter, and you are probably a lot better at this sort of thing than I am so you are probably not going to stab yourself in the fingers so often that people don't even look up anymore when you yelp (you know who you are). Slide a small bead onto the pin, glue it, and leave it standing pointy end up on a piece of plastic wrap until it dries like the world's most painful cookies.
I added some shinies onto my board, just stuff I had lying around or stuff I could cobble together from stuff I had lying around. A TARDIS, for the Doctor. A red bow tie for the Doctor. And a raven's feather for Poe.
And in case you can't read the notes....
You can't put a person on a grocery list.

I'M ON IT!
