Decorating a Clip Board and a thank you!

I am really getting old! I hurt my shoulder in my sleep somehow and can't do anything!
 
I must have slept wrong on it! I did manage a little project to show you.


I wanted to put a clip board in the store so people can write their emails for updates on new pieces. An organizational item for my store.


Have you seen a regular clip board? They are so BLAH! This just wouldn't do for my little space!


I got some scrap paper and Mod Podged it to the front.

I really just did something random. I used a graphic from The Graphics Fairy that I printed for another project just because it was laying around.

I added some crinkle binding and a dried rose to the top clip.
I thought it was finished but it needed something else.








I decided to add some lace to the clip. I also added a pencil. I glued some of the binding to the pencil so it would stay with the board. I didn't like the plain pencil with it, so I wrapped it in scrap book paper. I really love the way it came out. 

I think I will make some more and sell them in my Etsy store. There are endless possibilities to this!


Funny how a little project can turn into something you didn't expect!

Enjoy your day!

Thanks to Whipperberry for featuring my Memo Board!
