Fancy Clipboard

A handy clipboard to organize important documents, notes and paper clippings.

Approximate Time: 15 - 30 minutes


  • gift wrapper
  • felt paper
  • illustration board
  • glue
  • brush
  • scissors
  • fake pearl beads
  • file clip


  1. Cover both sides of the illustration board with gift wrapper using glue. You can use the decoupage technique here by cutting up the gift wrapper into small strips and covering the board with the strips. Seal both sides by brushing on white glue. Let it dry.
  2. Cut out favorite images from magazines or other gift wrappers and glue them on one side of the board.
  3. Glue file clip at the top center portion of the board.
  4. Cut out your initials and some scalloped frames from the felt paper. (You can make this easier by printing out your initials using your favorite font and tracing it on the felt paper's reverse side.) Glue initials and frame on the other side of the board. Glue on the fake pearl beads. Let dry.
