I wasn't sure where to list this. My daughter is going into 7th grade and after having magnets and mirrors etc. sliding all over the inside of her locker door and falling to the bottom of the locker we decided to try something a little different.  Her wonderful Dad went down to her locker and measured the door and I made a French memory board insert for her locker door.  The cut out part is where the combination lock is on the inside.  I used three cork squares but next time I would just use one sheet of cork I think.



This is how we decorated it.  What's nice is you can decorate it at home and then bring it to school. 
The flower is from her first dance recital, I added heart patches to the photo strip of her and her and her 6 year old sister, a clown pin from her clown collection, a heart from her little Sister, make a wish charm I made for her, little blocks that spell her name from a necklace she had in kindergarten, she loves Garfield so a Garfield comic strip that reads, I hate Mondays, her GS patch for selling 500 plus cookies this year, a chihuahua paper doll to represent her dog Rocky and the sailor hat for her Grandpa who was in the navy in WII, the dog card I sent her at camp, it is musical and sings about how much I like her that I would even share my french fries, she is a french fry junky, a picture of her and all her cronies from her last Birthday party at a local bowling alley and last her book mark about being a book worm.  I think it turned out cute!

I haven't had a locker in many years, but this makes me jealous that I never had one of these! lol

That is awesome, how do you make it stick in the locker? Magnets? I love it, I'm not in high school anymore and don't have a locker, but I think my sister and niece would love something like this!

My husband said it is pretty snug but we are going to use a lot of the thick double back tape I think.  Wish me luck!  Grin

Oh wow I LOVE this!! I'm going into my senior year of highschool this year and I've never been one to go all out decorating lockers (the ones at my school are TINY and get cluttered fast.) But I think I'm definitely going to try this. Thanks for posting this! Cheesy

How DARE my school only have desks?! I now want a locker to keep all my crap in!
I love it. I would be so happy to get this from anyone, especially my mom. I think the idea of the little dog with the sailor cap is really cute, and it reminds her of home and her family.
Really nice job. Wish I had a locker that I could pimp out  Undecided

Lockers have come a looooong way since I was in school....

I think the material you used to cover the corkboard is even pretty enough to stand on its own, even without all the inspiring embellishments. That yummy swirly batik is a delight to the eyes, and would cheer me up every time I saw it.
