To embellish your clipboard, start by removing the spring clamp. Be careful, it’s tight!
Trace your clipboard about an inch too short so that part of the board will show as a border. Using scissors or a paper trimmer, cut your scrapbook paper to fit your clipboard.
Using a corner rounder, round the corners. Then add Glue Dots around the edge of the backside of the paper…
..firmly press the paper to your clipboard!
To easily copy the holes in the clipboard to your paper, use a thumbtack to pierce the paper and then widen the hole by wiggling it around to fit the screw.
Now to embellish the clamp! Apply a coat of MSC decoupage glue with a foam pouncer. The pouncer leaves an even coat of glue for the glitter to adhere to.
Cover the glued area with your favorite shade of glitter! Let it dry for one hour. Lighter shades of glitter might require two coats. Repeat the steps above as needed.
To seal your glitter, apply one coat of MSC decoupage glue over the fully dried coat of glitter. This way you won’t loose one sparkle! Let dry for one hour.
Once your glittery clamp is fully dry you need to screw it back onto the board.
This step can be buggy, because you are working against the force of the spring clamp. **Crafters Tip: put your screws threw the holes first to make sure the holes are big enough and have someone help you hold it if need be.
See how much fun making to-do lists can be!
You can use these super cute clipboards after your wedding for all types of things from honey do’s to shopping lists… is it just me that loves making to-do lists or do you as well??
