Cork Board DIY

I have this mini bulletin board in the back of my room that I have no idea what to do with.  I was thinking that I could use it as a "parent info" board or a place to hang little notes from the kids.  Some crafting need to happen so I could make a place to hang my notes.  I thought...cork boards!

I normally use mod podge for everything.  But when I was looking at the edges of the cork board, I thought of just stapling the ribbon down to make a cute border.  And to my surprise, it worked pretty well!  I just cut the ribbon the length of each side, and stapled them down.

The ribbon, helped define the edges of the cork board AND made them look way cuter. ;)

Here you can see my mini bulletin board and the little cork boards on display.  I hung them with push pins, and one small nail on the top.  The green white/magnetic board in the middle is from Big Lots.  I am thinking of hanging the parent newsletter here, and possibly upcoming field trip dates and info.  

Any ideas on what I should hang here???
