Clipboard...

For something a little different, I thought I would post a Clipboard I did the other day.  This board now sits by my phone & comes very handy for those messages & dates.

I had all intensions of using it as a clipboard, but once I had printed the calendars & found spare Post-It Notes, that idea went out the window.

Clipboard -
Cut 2 pieces of DSP - Lap of Luxury, one for top of Clipboard & the other for the bottom
Adhere both pieces to Clipboard
Cut a strip of Concord Crush Cardstock & using your Scallop Trim Border, punch both sides of strip
Adhere strip of Basic Gray to the top of Concord Crush
Adhere to DSP where top & bottom join - this covers the join
Apply row of pale pink pearls along middle of strip
Calendar -
Print 2011 calendar & punch holes in the top LHS & RHS
Push flower brads - Pretty in Pink - through both holes
Adhere to square piece of Concord Crush Cardstock
Adhere calendar to top RHS of Clipboard
Post-It Notes -
Using Concord Crush Ink, stamp sentiment/greeting on all Post-It Pages
Cut piece of Concord Crush Cardstock & adhere Post-It Notes
Adhere to middle of Clipboard
Bulldog Clips -
Cut small pieces of DSP & adhere to Clips - 3
Cut small piece of Ribbon - Pretty-in-Pink & tie to clip
Adhere rhinestones - purple & pearls - pink
Clip onto Clipboard
Clip -
Tie ribbon to top of clip - Concord Crush & Pretty-in-Pink - 3 pieces
Pen -
Cut small piece of DSP
Take middle of pen out & insert DSP
Tie small piece of Ribbon - Pretty-in-Pink - around the top

Finished.  Your clipboard is now ready to sit in your office, beside the phone or on the kitchen bench, ready for those messages!
