Cute Clipboard Giveaway

Fall is definitely in the air today.  It is down right cold....okay, it is just on the chilly side for this time of year.  With the cooler weather upon us it put me in the mood for soup.  Tonight I made chicken noodle soup to warm me up.  Now that my tummy is full I am curled up on the couch with a blanket and thought I would share my cute clipboard project.


I started with a plain old clipboard and taped off the clip.


Then I used acrylic paint and painted a few inches from the top with a brush.  You could use scrapbook paper if you didn't want paint, but I am not happy until I have to dig paint out from underneath my finger nails.


Allow time for the paint to dry and then cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the size of the clipboard.  Then use Mod-Podge and apply to the backside of the scrapbook paper and apply the paper to the clipboard.  Then use the Mod-Podge and apply on the top side of the scrapbook paper.  Here you can see it is white looking, but it will dry clear.  Don't you just love Mod-Podge?!?!?


Then I cut a piece of scrapbook paper for a border and applied it between the painted part and the paper part.  Tie ribbons to clip for some cuteness.  I used different textures and sizes of ribbon....you know....for some flair!!!  I have four other clipboards similar to this one, but added some vinyl words to them as well.


There you have it....a cutie clipboard!!


Since I have plenty of these little cutie clipboards laying around I thought I would give this one away.  It is a piece of cake to enter.  Simply become one of my precious FOLLOWERS and leave a comment letting me know you did so.  If you already follow my blog, just leave some comment love.  Increase your chances by visiting my PROJECTS page and leave another comment letting me know what your favorite project was.  If projects aren't your cup of tea visit my RECIPE page and let me know what you will be making next.  Winner will be announced next week.

That's all for now!

  6. I like the herbie husker garden. It make it nice so they don't grow all together and make one bush. So much easier to pull what you need, when you need!!

  7. Love the clipboard idea! You know what? I really use a clipboard. It is sitting on my kitchen island right now with several different lists on it! It's not near as pretty as this one and it has someone else's name on it. ):
