Currently I'm going through a pretty rough time with my kitchen remodel and didn't have time to prepare a tutorial project today, so I'll be sharing a really quick and easy project with a brief explanation of what I did. I think you'll find it simple enough to copy should you choose to do so.
My project is a clipboard note-holder and magnet (sorry the pictures didn't turn out as clear as I would have liked):
The colored cardstock in the middle of the board is an example of a note clipped to the board and in this picture below shows the "note" removed from the clip clearly revealing a notes pad attached (I think I'm going to add a matching pen and present it as a gift set):
This next picture shows the back of the board where the back of the clip and magnet are attached:
My clipboard began from a set of discarded cardboard coasters shown below and a large paper clip :
What I did was painted the board with a cream color acrylic paint, sprayed it with a clear gloss, glued lace around the edges, attached the clip with E6000 glue, and embellished with gold bling ribbon, flowers edged with gold Stickles, and topped it off with a cream bow at the bottom -- SIMPLE! This will be a quick gift when an occassion arises for one.
As always, thanks for stopping by, love you all and...
I'll see you next month!
