Cut cork crosswise into 3/16 inch slices. Cut 3 slices total.
Drill 1 hole in 2 of the 3 slices through the cork slice lengthwise.
Cut out two small cubes out of the third cork slice. Drill a hole through the middle of each cube.
Using your green felt-tipped marker, draw a triangle on each of the 2 cork slices starting at one of the holes.
Cut out the triangles from the cork slices.
