Clipboard Fun!!

Here is a quick project that I made last week. I saw some altered clipboards at a team meeting and decided that I just needed to make one, so I did!

This one was super quick and easy. It may look like I cut up all kinds of different patterned papers and glued them to the clipboard, but I didn't. This is all one piece (except for the very top where I had to piece a few together to fit around the clippy part) of cardstock from the TAC Mulberry Meadows paper pack. This is my favorite paper that TAC carries and it is exclusive to them. You can't buy this gorgeous paper anywhere else!

Anyway, after I adhered the paper using Designer Dries Clear Glue (excellent glue for papercrafting), I then cut a bunch of ribbon and tied them on. The accent in the corner is just a flower (from Petal Pack which is currently not available but I hope will be in the new catalog in July) that I stamped with 2 colors of ink & punched out with a circle punch. I stamped the words "abound in goodness" from the TAC "Nurture Your Soul" word set and added stickles to the petals.

That is all there was to it! Simple and fun! I have also been working on some mini-clipboards this week for an upcoming FUNshop that I'm working on! I'll upload them next week.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting! I'd love to hear your comments. Do you have a question, want to see something specific on my blog, a certain technique, etc. If so, let me know by dropping me an email or by leaving a comment! Thanks!!

Jen, That is my favorite paper too! I recently made a candy tin scrapbook with it and found that it was great for boy and girl photos at the same time.
I love your ideas. I have Google Deskbar and since I subscribe to your feed, it tells me whenever you have something new on your blog. I love it! TFS!

Such a neat project! I love the colors and the ribbon. Now... just curious what you will do with your clip board now that it's been altered?

OMGoodness. That is adorable. I actually used that paper to cover a tin. That particular sheet is amazing for altering, in fact I love the whole pack.
Thank you for the clipboard idea~U Rock!

this is my first time visiting your blog, but it won't be my last. You have some great stuff here. I love this paper too. My s-i-l is a TAC demo so I have a wish list about a mile long whenever I see her. This clipboard is great. I love making them!!
