Fancy Frugal Life: Embellished Clip Boards (Teacher Gifts)

Embellished Clip Boards (Teacher Gifts)


Last week I noticed a "wish list" for my daughter's preschool teachers and clip boards were on it. Here's a fun way to embellish these I've seen around blogland.


I picked up a plain clipboard at Michael's for $2.99. After I unscrewed the metal, I used Mod Podge to apply scrapbook paper on the wood part. Then applied a coat on top.









I had this color spray paint on hand and sprayed the metal part.



I glued a piece of ribbon across the bottom and tied some matching ribbon and tulle to the metal clip.



I found this clipboard for $1.00 at Goodwill and they had a bin of these stick on monograms for $1.00.






The vintage french sheet music printable is from the Graphics Fairy.


I glued plain black ribbon on this one.



I hope her teachers LOVE them because I do :)




How perfect are these for Teacher Apreciation Day or actually for anyone who uses a clipboard?
Thanks so much for visiting me...I love all the comment love lately :0

Great tutorial. I am going to book mark this project. I am going to try this for myself. I will see if I can make my plain one into an apple or chicken print for my kitchen notes.
