I have a handful of presidential election buttons that I wanted to display in my apartment.  The problem was that I wanted it to be organized and classy without looking like I just put a bunch of buttons on a wall.

I went to Ikea and bought $2 frames that also come with matting.  Then my idea was to buy squares of cork board.  Cork board is actually a little pricey, but when I was at Ikea I saw some cork board placemats that I bought for $4 for four mats.

I removed the glass and cut out cork board framed pieces of cork.  Now I have a grid of buttons in my house.

    This is so cool, Mike. Love those pins you’ve showed -I’m a political history junkie, and those peak my interest and make me start reflecting on the campaigns through the years! Thanks for sharing!
