As the end of the school year came to a close, we needed going away gifts for some of our staff. I thought that these would be great gifts. I made a few and we clipped gift cards to the top.
I had a few clipboards left over and thought they'd look good on an empty wall in my family room - they would fill the space until I had enough money to get some favorite paintings framed (which will be awhile because that's a big budget thing!).
Here is the original idea - I added decorative fibers to the top of the clip.
Here are the ones I did for our wall:
I painted them with two coats of chalkboard paint (NOT spray paint). Use sandpaper to distress the edges when the paint is dry.
I then used craft paint to do the lettering using the same process I do for chalkboards (directions on the Craft Project Instructions page).
Add a few lines or dots on the edges (or not) and then rub chalk across the board and wipe with a soft flannel cloth.
I thought it would be fun to switch out pictures and write things we need to remember.
Just think of all the different clipboards that would be useful: Grocery List, Honey Do List, Receipts... the ideas are endless!!
