Plain Old Clipboards? I think not!

Posted in ideas, projects, Reviews, samples at 9:28 am by scrapbookdesigns

Take one humble wooden clipboard and give it it’s own personality. Aren’t these 2 samples from Lisa Mantell just divine? She is one talented lady! Making clipboards into works of art are easy, they’re a great size to work on and the flatness of the wood makes them ideal for adding lots of layers with paper, paints, inks and stamps. The hole begs for threads, ribbons, charms and fibres to match! On the red clipboard Lisa has used a printed nursery rhyme paper adhered to thick cardboard to make the swinging tags and the small cream and brown square are made from shrink pastic.  A large square was punched out first, then the corners rounded with a corner round punch (remember punches are ideal for shrink plastic) and then the plastic was stamped on before shrinking!! Too cool Lisa! Thanks
