Paper Craftin with Erica

Altered Clipboards

Hello friends… here are a couple of 6×6 Clipboards I altered.  I was looking to create something that I could hang up and use for "leaving notes" so I used cork to pin reminders and sticky notes for, well, notes.  It was a little difficult to get the paper to cover the entire board because of the metal clip at the top.  Some clipboards allow you to take that off, but these didn't. 

Mimi Clipboard

So, I cut the paper as close as I could and then "shoved" it under the metal piecing.  It was tricky.  Anyway, I used mod podge to adhere More Mimi paper onto the clipboard.  When it was dry, I sanded the edges and then painted mod podge all over the top for a finished matte look.

Cha Cha Clipboard

This one is a slightly different in that I use multiple pieces of paper and added a photo card (being the scrapbooker that I am).  I used three different pieces of patterned paper from the ChaCha collection and followed the same steps as above.  I also used a mini sticky note pad this time.  **HUGS**
