Monday Made It: Clipboard and More + a Freebie

I've been busy :)  Between the pool and reading chick lit books, I've still been able to make a few things :)
I made a fancy fun clipboard.  I used scrapbook paper and a quote I printed off on card stock  from The Girl Creative.
Scrapbook Paper
Ribbon (3 colors)
Quote printed on Card Stock
Modge Podge

I used Modge Podge to glue the scrapbook paper to the clipboard.  Then I used more Modge Podge to glue the quote onto the scrapbook paper.  I sealed it with a coat of Modge Podge.  Make sure to wait for the Modge Podge to dry between layers.  I actually let each layer dry overnight.

When it was dry, I tied ribbons in groups of three around the clip part of the clipboard. 

TIP:  If you use an inkjet printer, Modge Podge will made the ink run.  It is very depressing to watch your masterpiece wash away!!!  Before I used Modge Podge, I sprayed the quote with a matte coat of clear spray paint to seal it.  I actually did two coats, to be safe. That worked PERFECTLY!!!

I love my clipboard and can't wait to use it :)

I made these mats.  I had a couple teachers request them.  Click here for the freebie!

I've made them with ABC's, CVC words, and sight words

If they are laminated you can use wikki sticks, play dough, noodles and more to have students make the shapes of the words or letters.

If they are not laminated, students can use Bingo Dotters, glitter, rice, or sand to decorate their letters and words. 


  1. Your sign is too cute! I actually bought 2 cheap frames the other day and have been trying to decide what to put in them--but your project is WAY cuter!

  2. I made a clipboard for MMI this week too! Yours is super cute. Love me some modge podge!

  3. I like the idea to put a quote on the clipboard. There are a few quotes I really like that are good reminders to me as a teacher that really don't belong in the classroom, if you know what I mean. thanks for the tip about sealing the ink first. :)
