Altered Clipboards


Lisa and I have an upcoming meeting with a corporate associate. We are presenting a potential new endeavor to them, and we want to leave them with a wonderful impression of this possible venture! Our outline of ideas will be on these altered clipboards, which each person will receive and keep. I glued on pages from an old calendar I had been hoarding. Then I attached one of our business cards. I used modge podge because I had inherited it. Elmer’s works great too. Wrinkles formed in my paper, and I embraced that look. I smushed all the bubbles as flat as can be, and called it good. For the ribbon ties, I cut lengths of rayon seam binding and the cream stuff might be for drape or upholstery use (?). I got them wet, crunched them up and let them dry. To add some interest to the cream stuff, I blotted them with my used tea bag.

Now I wish I had made an extra one to keep!

Wonderful clipboard.

Now there's another project I never got around too. I purchased several clipboards way back when, and I have yet to alter one! lol
