Instructions

  1. Cut scrapbook papers to fit the top of the clipboard.  You can cut one sheet for a simple design or cut different prints and patterns to make a collage.  Remember to trim pieces around the clip part.  Add more paper design elements and attach with Mod Podge.  Be sure to add dry time in between coats.
  2. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper.  Position the paper on the clipboard, smooth the paper with your fingers to remove any air bubbles. Allow to dry for 10 minutes then top coat with a layer (or two) of Mod Podge. Allow to dry. Add more paper design elements and attach with Mod Podge.  Be sure to add dry time in between coats.
  3. Cut ribbons and tie them around hole on the clip or glue a large silk flower to the clip.

PROJECT TIP: Make a template of the area around the clip to make cutting the small papers eaiser.
