I'm delaying writing a post about the last day of my creative retreat until I have worked out the kinks on something related to it. In the meantime, I'm showing you something I made recently. I have been meeting with former colleagues (who are now school owners) for some business stuff. I contacted them to ask for help and they have been kind enough to say yes. I decided to make embellished clipboards as thank-you gifts.
They're so easy to make!
I have some inexpensive clipboards I got from the bookstore. Wooden clipboards are best.
I took some scrapbook paper (don't use thin paper such as gift wrappers) and cut it to fit the clipboard. I used two kinds of scrapbook paper to fit the clipboard.
I then used a foam brush to spread Mod Podge on the clipboard and also at the back of the scrapbook paper.
Then I used a squeegee to smoothen the paper and to take out all the bubbles from the Mod Podge.
For the last step, I coated the entire clipboard with Mod Podge again. I used matte Mod Podge. Mod Podge is love!
After drying, I just tied a ribbon around the clipboard. Easy peasy, right?
Happy crafting! :)
