There is so much inspiration on Pinterest you couldn't live long enough to try all the amazing crafts out there. Whilst browsing I came across an old fav of mine, decorated clip boards.
If you have a cutting machine, you can find a clipboard cut file in the Silhouette design store which makes this an inexpensive way to create something gorgeous. Clipboard ID #39558. I used chipboard to cut mine which gives it the strength needed. And here two that I have created and inspired by Pinterest.
I have used Mintay Papers Better Times and Mintopia Studio A Volar collection kit from the Clique shop.
This larger clip I create I have made into a picture frame. My darling girl pictured here passed recently after being a part of our family for 17 years. I wanted her to be in my craft room so this was a perfect way to honour her. The A Volar collection perfect colours and even though it is a travel collection you can see it certainly can be used for other themes. I created a vellum sequin shaker and machine stitched to add texture and layers. I added a floral charm onto the clip part of the board which you need to do before adhering the clip to the board.
I made my second clipboard smaller as my intention was to make it into a birthday card to send overseas. Using the Mintay Papers Better times collection. Again I created a vellum sequin shaker but this time added some Prima ribbon ( I added a row of machine stitching to the middle of a double folded strip and then gathered by gently pulling the cotton at each end) to soften. I used one of the journal cards as the feature of my card which I added to a wood frame from one of the other papers. I added this piece with foam tape to create dimension. I finished this off by adding several fussy cut butterflies and charms. This fits into an envelope and only cost me $3.55 AUS to send to England. I think my grandmother will love the novel birthday card. My greetings written on the back of the clip board.
I love how these turned out and how fab is it that you can use the basic clipboard to create varying projects. Thank you for stopping by and head over to the Clique shop to see all the gorgeous products cliquekits.com/see-everything/
