Altered Clipboards

Pin It!

I needed a place to make a list of my projects I need to work on. So I made 3 clipboards for my sewing, scrapping and other project lists. I hung them inside the cabinet that holds my fold-down ironing board.
These clipboard were quick and easy to make. I first painted, the front and back of each legal size clipboard black. I then covered it with patterened scrapbook paper. The paper I used was white with a black flocked pattern. Since the paper is only 12 X 12 and the clipboard is 18" tall I had to piece two pieces together matching the pattern.  I ran the paper throught the Xyron first the make it sticky so it would adhere to the board. I then cut the ETC. out of the Cricut Storybook font. After running the letters through the Xyron (upside down) I applied flocking. The Scrap and the Sew are cut out of the Cricut Gypsy Font.  I used the same technique to add glitter  to the wording. I used some flowers I had to cover the Staples label on the clip. The black flower I first ran through the Xyron and then covered in black flock to match the paper.
