Both of my girls wanted to make a handmade Christmas gift for their cousins and a few friends. Delaney settled on decorating mini clipboards with scrapbook paper, letter stickers, felt, and buttons.
I’m sure you have seen decoupaged clipboards, journals, etc. before – so simple, with endless ways to personalize! I made a template of the clipboard shape, which Delaney traced onto the back of her chosen papers. We cut them out and glued them to the clipboards with Mod Podge.
After they dried for a bit, we added each person’s initial with a letter sticker or cutout. Then, the whole thing got a layer of Mod Podge over the top. We covered the logo on the clip with a felt circle and a button (hot glued on).
Add a notepad and glittery pencil and you’re done! We even tied our pencils to the clipboards with rainbow ribbon.
In one morning, we were able to make 8 of these start to finish. Simple, affordable, and useful!
I hope our cousins and friends have a great time writing and sketching on their new clipboards!
