Add a DIY cork board into your kitchen will allow you to keep all your favourite ingredient conversions, important phone numbers, top recipes and other pieces of paper in one place. A top place to do this is in the inside of a kitchen cupboard so it is out of site or if you want your kids to see it too – stick it on the wall.

What you will need for this DIY cork board
