wooden clipboard with rectangular clip*
several sheets of coordinating scrapbook paper
straight edge--I used my good ole library card!
variety of ribbons
Lay out your scrapbook paper and decide how you'd like to decorate your clipboard. I had to cut a couple of pieces to fit onto this clipboard.
Cut your scrapbook paper just a bit smaller than your clipboard so the mod podge will seal correctly. I also used a corner rounder for my corners and it came our really nice! Once your paper is ready, apply a moderate layer of mod podge on the clipboard and apply the first piece of paper. Run your straight edge (or library card :o) over the paper to ensure there are no bubbles between your paper and the clipboard. Apply each piece of scrapbook paper one by one until the front and back is covered. Trim edges and any over-hanging paper. It is very important that all paper is adhered to the clipboard with the mod podge...it will bubble later if not. I also used a hole punch to help the paper on the back lay flat over the metal.

I know we did this for back to school, but you could do this for any occasion, or just for fun!
*Wooden clipboards are not the easiest to find...look in the home office section of Target, Walmart, etc, instead of the "back to school" section!
