Monday (..or Tuesday) Made-it!

I know...already posted today...but I just wanted to link up to Made-It Monday! so bad...and before it turned into Made-It Wed/Thurs/ or Fri! 

I know many of you are already familiar with the clipboard-redecoration...but I have been slaving away on these bad boys..so I just had to show them off!

To create my clipboards I used 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and ribbon in my class colors and the materials pictures below.

I found the foam brush to work quite nicely, because then all those little bristles didn't get stuck in my work! I used the xacto knife to cut off excess, and then used my handy little corner rounder on each of the corners so that they matched those of the actual clip board.

Here are the 27 BEAUTIFUL products of all of my hardwork. 

While I was in the groove, I took a moment to create on for my wonderful mother, whose birthday just happens to be today! 

Happy Birthday Mom!

(She is a nurse ;))

  7. Any helpful hints to neatly get around the clip part?

  8. Any helpful hints to neatly get around the clip part?

    1. I just used a pencil to mark where the ends of the clip part were on my paper, then kind of just guesstimated with some trial and error from there! I am sure there is a more precise way, but that worked well enough for me! Some clipboards you can even remove the clip part to do it! I just felt like it was too much hassel for the masses that I wanted to do! Good luck :)

  9. Love these!
