I love to paint. I could repaint rooms every few months just to change things up, but my hubby doesn’t think that is such a great idea. Anyway every time I paint I have a dilemma of what to do with all the paint chips. They are just so prettyWell I am going to repaint the kitchen and decided I could use a clipboard to keep track of random things I want to do with the boys. I find that unless I am intentional with our schedule, our days just pass by and my pile of things I want to do just grows and is never enjoyed. So my idea with this clipboard is to be able to keep track of what I want to accomplish that week with the boys…and I can clip any coupons, instructions, etc. to it. Once the activity is done, I just wipe it off and start over the next week.

Clear Contact Paper – creates a surface you and use dry erase markers on
Fun masking tape
Step 1: Cut my paint chips to the size I wanted. Covered clipboard area with Mod Podge, added the paint chips
Step 2: Cut the scrapbook paper for the top section. Attached the same way as the paint chips.
Step 3: Covered entire board in Mod Podge
Step 4: Added decorative masking tape
Step 5: Cut clear contact paper to size. Smoothed contact paper over entire clipboard
I got the idea to use the Contact Paper from Design*Sponge. There are endless possiblities for customizing clipboards – a lot are a bit too frilly for me, but I imagine they would make some little girls really happy. Below are some links to other versions of custom clipboards. These would make great gifts…
