Easy...Peazy...Dollar Treezy Clipboard Frame


I went on a crafting retreat last week, which I posted projects from on Tuesday and Wednesday, but this is one little "I'm tired of scrapbooking this album' project I threw together.
This little clipboard (it's about half the size of a 'traditional' clipboard) has been sitting in my house for a few weeks. I grabbed it at the Dollar Tree while I was picking up something else....which is where many of my craft thoughts fester from...something I see while I'm getting something else I need for a craft I probably decided to try the last time I was at the store . It's a vicious cycle, but at least this particular craft is cheap....unless I give this to *you*, and if I give this to *you*, than this particular craft is PRICELESS, remember that!!!
I didn't photograph it well, but it's not going to change anyone's life, though it could change someone's week if you need a fast gift for a group, this is an easy one.
Here is the dollar clipboard before decorating...

I used scrapbook scraps (which you can see in my album), left over ribbon, and a glue stick to pop it all down. The back of the clipboard is a coordinating blue paper, and I put a thin black ribbon along the edges. I stuck the ribbon down with double sided tape. Sometimes I used super glue for ribbon on projects like this, but....I ran out. I used a Creative Memories circle punch for the letter backing, and sticker letters, but I could have just slapped the letters directly on the paper....or left off the words completely. I also added a flower to the clip with a glue dot (again, super glue would work)....because I'm obsessed with flowers...it was that or a ribbon. There is a hole in the back of the clip you can hang the clipboard from, or it can be set on an easle....or in the far corner of a drawer, or a dumpster....I'm just being real, it could happen. Now I just need to pick a friend, then pick a picture to clip on so I can get this out of my life....I mean....enrich someone else's life. ;o)
