Decoupage Clipboards

I love to do crafts and this one is so easy I thought I would share. It also makes a great teacher appreciation gift.

Get a Clipboard and make sure it is dust free.

Paint a base coat of paint on the clipboard if you are not covering the entire board. Keep in mind that most of the board will be covered so you only need to paint the portion that won't be.

Apply decorative paper, wallpaper, photos, etc. to the front of the board using a decoupage medium like Mod Podge. Use the edge of a popsicle stick to press against board to remove any air bubbles. Make sure it dries completely. Flip over Board and apply paper to back if you would like.

Once it has dried completely you can layer with more paper and embellish.

Once you have applied all the paper you wish then put a couple of layers of Mod Podge over the paper to seal it. Once it is completely dry you are finished. I like to tie ribbon to the metal clip to add a finishing touch.

Here is another board I completed. Sorry for the bad lighting.
