Mini Clipboards

Once again, I've tapped into my cabinet for projects to make. I purchased these clipboards at a 100Yen store in Japan, probably a year or two ago and they've just been waiting to be decorated!! They are chipboard and tiny :) I had made plenty of the regular sized clipboards in the past, so it was a whole other story to work on the tiny area.

I wasn't sure where I was going with it, but then the more I played, the more they spoke to me :) I figure that they can be adorned with either a picture, poem etc.

I even dug out my Rub-Ons and used those to add sentiments at the bottom.

Each clipboard has a ribbon covered clip, I always find it fun to go through my ribbon stash to see what colors will match up. I love ribbon!!!

And another thing I rarely use are my buttons...and I have all that SU offers, so I really need to dig them out more often. I placed one in each corner after tying a thread through.

I think it's the details that make these clipboards so great. It was worth digging out the rub-ons.
