Happy Friday!

My Team and I had our monthly meet up and once again, shared projects.  Georgia came up with both of these ideas and we decided to get together to create a set. Today, I’m featuring the mini clip board.  The recipe is below.

The mini clip board can hang on either your bulletin board or refrigerator.  It’s within reach when you need it. I thought it would be a great little gift or stocking stuffer. Tuck it into a cellophane bag, tie it up with a pretty ribbon and add a custom tag.  This project is quick and easy.

Check back tomorrow for the note book cover “how to”.

 Supplies and where to get them:
  • Chip board. I purchased the chip board at Amazon. It’s medium weight and you can cut it with your paper trimmer.
  • Mini note pads.  I purchased these at Dollar Tree.  They come 5 to a pack.
  • 1 1/4″ document clips.
  • Clear barrel pens.
  • Magnet strips
  • A lollipop stick or skewer.
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (we used the buffalo check pattern).
  • Detailed Trio Punch
Here’s the “how to”:
  • Cut two pieces of chipboard 4 3/4″ x 6 1/2″.
  • Round the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.
  • Glue them together with Multipurpose Glue.
  • The patterned paper is 4 5/8″ x 6 3/8″.  Cut two and attach them to both the front and back of your chip board.
  • Cut a small patterned paper strip 1 1/2″ x 1 1/4″.  This wraps around the binder clip.
  • As you’re wrapping the patterned paper strip over the binder clip, hold it in place, The Multipurpose Glue works great since drying time is minimal.
  • Remove the ink from the pen by twisting the pen top.
  • Cut a small patterned paper strip 1 1/4″ x 3 1/4″.
  • Tightly wrap this around a lollipop stick or skewer (something thin and round).
  • This helps you get the patterned paper into the pen barrel so you have a matching pen.
  • Attach a magnet strip to the back.

So, pop over to the dollar store, cut your favorite Designer Series Paper, add some pretty packaging and create a fun gift!

…the only limitation is your imagination!
