My Pinspiration today was something I saw on Pinterst a while back. I love being able to revisit my pins. A snowy day like today was great for crafting since we were stuck in the house. (Yes, I live in CT and we are supposed to be getting 1 to 2 feet of snow. I know-CRAZY!)
Below is the clipboard and binder that I spruced up and gave new life to with printed paper.
The first one I did was the clipboard. I used a scrap piece of paper to trace the clipboard. The newly created template was used to trim the 12x12 printed paper down to size. Once it was the correct size, I cut it in half so that I can use the other printed side for the top to the board. I held open the clip on the board with one of my husband's clamps so it would not stick when I added the modge podge. I cut around the clip with my exacto knife - (see the cut below). The second picture below right (not in order) shows the two pieces of paper with an open spot in the middle. I covered that space of the board with strips of coordinating paper and then added the embellishments.
To cover the spine completely, I added the extra strip I trimmed off the original sheet and a piece from the another piece of paper ( The other paper was also used to cut out The Memory Nest [on the Cricut]. Once the first part was dry, I added more modge podge to the top of the binder to adhere the letters. I painted modge podge over the letters and another coat on the paper and spine. The paper used on the binder is from the So Happy Together collection by Echo Park: Happy Tune and Happy Strips.
And there you have it. My repurposed binder and clipboard - Pinterest Inspired!
Happy modge podging,
