*adorable* Mini Clipboards

I've had this idea kicking around in the back of my head for a while and it finally came to pass... and I am in LOVE with these little clipboards!


This skull one is mine.


Nina chose an owl, Alyssa's is the green and of course Caleb's is the firefighter clipboard.


The other two are for gifts and I'll be making lots more. They hold a square sticky note pad perfectly! How fun is that?


Now my secret? I used a package of old coasters from a thrift store. I tacky glued the paper to the coaster, let it dry, sanded the edged and mod podged the top to seal it. The clips are binder clips with paper tacky glued and mod podged as well. EASY CHEESY!

Have u tried the marble magnets? I made some over the holidays and loved them. you take those flat marbles and modge podge an image on,modge podge over the top,let it dry and then use a silicone sealer to glu on small magnets to the back. huge hit with everyone.

Those are super cute!

I made some a few months ago and put a super strong magnet on the back of the clip so it could hang on the fridge. :)

I just had a funny thought. Some animals sniff their food before they eat it; Angie photographs it! lol.

I love these clipboards. I can't remember, did you put magnets on the back? I'll have to go back and reread. I'm old, what can I say?

Thank you for visiting junkblossoms. I hope you'll visit again soon. Pat
