Clipboard Gifts

Some simple decoupage will turn this clipboard into this cute gift for the holidays or a cute display for your walls!  I’ll show you how.

Trace the clipboard onto an old manila folder to make a template of the front and back of the clipboard.  Use some ribbon or twine to hold the paper clamp open while you work.

Trace your template onto wrapping paper, craft paper, Tissue paper or even newspaper.

Then, cut out your pieces and set them aside.

Paint a thin layer of decoupage glue onto the clipboard and then gently lay your paper in place. Use a credit card to gently smooth out any bubbles.

Once it’s nice and smooth, paint a layer of medium over the paper and let it dry.

Repeat the process for the back of the clipboard and let it dry completely.

Add some pretty ribbon to the clamp ring and you’ve got a perfect little gift for the holidays!  I’m Mrs. FIXIT and it’s just that simple!
