We like Broke But Bougie, a blog for young women who want to do crafts and decorate their home on a budget. We ran an article previously about how to use corks--complete with photos--so we thought the author and DIYer Bridget would like to add more tips.
Here's a bit of info about our instructor:
You’re fresh out of college. Debt, ramen noodles and a plastic bowl are just about all you have to call your own. Good luck looking the part at your first job interview when all you’ve got is your mom’s old business suit. You are flat broke, but you’ve got to look bougie to swim with the sharks. Should you throw another loan on the pile?
No! Who said being broke means you can’t look bougie? What if being healthy was cheap and easy? We’ve searched all over to bring you the best tips, tricks, and bargains in fashion, eateries and beauty products.

(This project is really cool:) says Andrea)
Have a rustic dinner party coming up? Barbeque? Even a country wedding is the perfect place for these simply placeholders.
Cut one third of the cork off completely in order to create a flat surface.
On the opposite side of your flat surface, cut a small notch where your name tag will go.
See slideshow for photos on how to do.
