My friend....whose blog shall remain nameless since it's now defunct.....STEPHANIE!!!!....made me this personalized clipboard a couple years ago.
Isn't she lovely? Isn't she beautiful? Isn't she wonderrrrrrful?
My kids are always asking to borrow it, so I decided to make them each one for Christmas. A nice little homemade gift from mama.
I'm no Modge Podge pro, but this was pretty easy and relatively quick. I read some tips on using modge podge in order to avoid bubbles and tackiness. What I learned is to apply a thin coat of the glue to the board. Then apply a thin coat to the back of the scrapbook paper you're applying. By the time you get around to placing the paper, the board will be almost dry. Use a credit card (or pampered chef scraper!) to smooth out the air pockets. Then apply a thin coat over the paper and embellishments. Let it dry completely between extra coats. I did three coats in all over the course of a few days.
