How To Make a Mod Podge Clipboard Craft

guest post by Suzanne Winn

The other day I realized that I needed a birthday gift for a 5 year old girl. We got her a few little things that little girls like, but I also felt like making her something!

So…I pulled out the clipboard I bought a while back for 50 cents and went to town!!

Here’s the list of what I used:

  • Wooden Clipboard
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Acrylic Paint
  • MOD-PODGE
  • Ribbon
  • Foam Brushes

**I ended up NOT using the sandpaper and ink**, more to come about those on another project at another time….

First Step: Paint the edges in a color that coordinates with your paper.

Second Step: Measure out and trim the paper for the top…. apply mod-podge to the back of the paper and smooth out on clipboard.

Eighth Step: I used more rub off letters and coordinating paper for the back of the board…of course I attached it with more mod-podge!

It turned out so good! She loved it and I really enjoyed making it! Oh, and it was SUPER inexpensive!! I’m sure she’ll be using it for all the kindergarten homework!!

*I think it would be fun to have your kids color a blank page before covering it with the mod-podge, or decorate their own clipboard with stickers and such! I think I’m going to make a small one (that will fit in a bag easily) to take to church with us*
