So, I told you how I wanted to create a clipboard for my BSF discussion leader. She is always carrying her lesson on a clipboard so when I saw these in the blog world I decided it would be a nice thing to make for her as a "thank you" for the year. I'm pretty sure she doesn't read my blog so I don't mind posting about it. Our last BSF is Monday so I'm going to give it to her then.
I have seen a few tutorials for these, like this one. If you want a good tutorial you can go to the linked blog and it will walk you step by step. One day I'll be so crafty I'll be the one doing tutorials...ah, the dreams I have!
Here's the finished product. Abby loves purple so I went with purple paper for her clipboard. Now, there are a few blemishes but I hope she likes it.
I put ribbon at the top were I didn't cover it with paper. This is still something I have to tweak, being able to cover the entire board.
I put a ribbon along the line where the two pieces of paper meet and then glued a heart button for a little accent.
So, there you have it...me tryin to be crafty. I love this kind of stuff so I hope to be able to keep the groove going!
