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!
Here’s the list of what I used:
- Wooden Clipboard
- Scrapbook Paper
- Acrylic Paint
- 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.
Third Step: Repeat step two for the rest of the board.
Fourth Step:(Optional Customization) Measure out a coordinating paper to spell out the name.
Fifth Step: Make sure the letters are even!
Sixth Step: Rub off letters onto paper and adhere the paper to the board with the mod-podge.
Seventh Step: Tie ribbon to the clip part of the board.
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*
