Clipboard Love!!

DSCN3649

I found these cheap little clipboards on sale for 97 cents. I instantly knew they would make a great project that just might break all barriers of age and gender. I whipped out all of my scrapbook paper, magazine cut-outs, stamps, stickers, hole punchers,paint pens and my new favorite art supply… PAINT SAMPLE CARDS. I’ve been using these for everything. Seriously, it was no holds barred! We used it all! What a great project to purge all of my scraps.

A regular glue stick worked just fine, as long as the entire surface was being covered. We also used Sobu applied with a paintbrush. Afterwards, I put on 2 coats of Mod Podge.

We had so much fun and each one of them came out so different. Everyone is super pleased with them. I had so much fun, I could make 10 more!

I don’t know if I am turnning into some crazy pack rat lady, but I am constantly ripping pages out of magazines. Not just recipes or projects, but really random stuff. A big patch of grass or denim that I know I can cut shapes out of. Crazy, I know. But hey, you can’t say they didn’t come in handy.

Cindy, “does it really matter?”

This the back of mine.

This heart cut out is actually made from a bunch of thread spools. Probably Blueprint or Real Simple. Neither of which I still get. But it turns out that it wasn’t ripped out in vain. Sorry for the crappy photos. It was already getting dark out and I wanted to post these before we went on vacation. That reminds me. I still need to post on our “staycation”. Our trip in our own backyard. Coming soon!

  1. These are so cute. You must have school on your mind with all these terrific ideas you’re giving out. I might have to try this one too. Thanks!

  2. Yes, all those magazine pages do come in handy, so keep doing it! :o) They’re really cute, Cindy.

    I can’t seem to get a hold of you in person these days so I’m gonna email you.
