Have you seen the NEW 6x6" adhesive Cork Stack by DCWV? I played with it a little bit today and you are going to be seeing me using more cork for certain. LOL! There are thin cork sheets with an adhesive and it can be cut with the die cutting machines like the Sizzix Big Kick and its dies and that is very cool but even better, you can use punches with it as long as you are sensible and don't try to use an ornate punch. How fun are these!?
And of course you could use acrylic paints to paint them but guess what? You can mist them! I found that they take the more opaque types of mists better. Just look how cute these little red cork hearts are. CLICK HERE for a couple of Valentines where I use these cork hearts
