Altered Clipboards

Hello!  So did everyone enjoy the post by Cheryl?  Wow, it has definitely been a while! 

Today I have a couple of clipboards to share over at All That Scraps Anything But a Card Day.  On one of my trips to our local Ben Franklin store, I saw these cardboard clipboards.  They were smaller in size than usual, about 7 in by 9.5 in.  But the best part was that they were only a $1 each!!!  I didn't know what to make with them at first besides just altering them but then I saw a roll of self-adhesive white board paper which was also on sale and then I had an idea.

I thought it would be cute to add the white board paper to the clipboard and it can be hung up somewhere.  The hardest thing was trying to cut out the paper nicely around that clip.  So once I did it close enough I traced it onto scratch paper so I could use it again as a template.  I also wrapped the edge of the clipboard with washi tape.

This is Fairy Abigail.  She is so pretty!  I did something a bit different with her wings.  I stamped them onto vellum and cut them out and glued just the edge by her hair.  I added some stickles and liked that transparent look.  The sentiment is from Butterfly Labels.  Mostly I am proud that I used some of these flowers and pearls and rhinestones!  I've had these a while.

This is the second one I made using some cute Doodlebug cardstock and the new stamps from CC Designs called The Tumbleweeds.  This cutie is from Butterfly Dreams.  The butterfly die cut is also CC Designs Butterfly Border die.

Here's a close up.  I like her as a blonde too.

It's Spring Break for my boys this week but I seem to have caught a cold or something.  Funny thing is that my kids aren't sick.  I caught something all on my own.  My nose gets stuffy every time I sit for too long so I'm trying to stand up every so often.

Alrighty, thanks for visiting today!

You're doing it again! Just killing me with cuteness. I love this project! I never knew there was such a thing as white board paper. I gotta go look for that now. I'll white board our entire dining table - all scratched up with pen marks already! Cute!!!

So cute! You have so many great ideas, I can't think of anything cute to make. I had some time over spring break, I will post something at some point again... once I recover from all that time off
