Monday Made It ~ Clipboards

I love making things with my friends, and this past week we had one of our Pinterest parties at a friend's house.  After swimming and lunch, she had gotten the supplies to make clipboards.  How cool!

I am linking this up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!
She had gone to the hardware store and had the boards cut for us.
We looked through books of 12x12 scrapbooking paper to choose two pages we wanted to use for the front and back of each clipboard.  We cut the pages to fit as we needed.  The back page was cut to wrap around the board at 11 and 1/2 by 9, and the front was cut to the exact measurements

Then we painted the back side with modge podge.  After that we wrapped the large page around the back and onto the front and painted that side with modge podge.

After it dried, we flipped it over to put paper on the other side by doing the same thing, except we didn't wrap the paper around the sides.

Once that was dried, we added our binder clips, fully equipped with a little bit of the paper as an accent. We put these on with hot glue, but mine popped off.  I used another bonding crafting glue to hold it on.  I hope that works!
And the final products!
The fronts
The backs
We really had fun making these, and they were super simple!

  4. I like that you started out with plain board and added the clips later. I've done a couple clip boards like this and I always get so frustrated trying to cut my paper to fit around the clip that is already at the top of the clipboard. Smart thinking, girls! Your boards are adorable!
