Altered Clipboards

I bought some clipboards with the idea of altering them some time ago. They sat in my craft space untouched and nearly forgotten for quite a while, until I saw the adorable clipboard that my friend Cheri had made for herself.

I used Stampin Up!'s Spring Flowers designer paper cut to size and the used Royal Coat Decoupage to adhere it to the clipboard. After it had dried, I applied another coat of decoupage to the top to protect the paper.

I printed a small calendar off my computer and stamped the center of each month using stamps from All Year Through and Tag Time. I attached the calendar pages to a coordinating piece of card stock using Rich Regal brads and then attached to the clipboard with velcro so it can easily be changed out next year.

I finished it off with lots of grosgrain and gingham ribbons. The ribbon on the side holds a matching pen. The big flower was made by stamping the daisy from Looks Like Spring and embossing with white embossing powder. I then cut it out and embellished with a punch out using the coordinating flower punch and a Soft Subtle button attached with linen thread.

On the back of the clipboard I attached magnets so it could be attached to the fridge or where ever is handy. The clip is still functional to hold notes, photos, etc...

Thanks for the inspiration Cheri!
