Shabby Clipboard Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you how I decorated one of the fabulous new Clipboards

Step 1:  Stamp the backside of  clipboard with a music staff and white Staz-on ink.

Step 2:  Collage back of clipboard with papers (I chose some scraps of Prima Almanac).  Stamp front of clipboard with Butterfly stamp and black Staz-on.  Because the papers are on the backside, and the stamping is all done in a solvent based ink, the final project won't just be beautiful, but functional as well.

Step 3:  Create bead dangle by threading beads onto a head pin and forming loop.

Step 4:  Feed headpin through fibers and tie the fibers to clip of the clipboard.  Embellish with flowers.

Finally I wrapped more fibers and a small word band around the bottom section of the clipboard and glued.  I would love to see how you chose to embellish your next clipboard.
