Mini Clip boards craft

From plain and boring to bursting with color!  I found these adorable mini clipboards at AC Moore.  I knew I could have fun with them!  So, I purchased some acrylic paints and some Mod Podge, came home and got to work!  I used a sponge brush to paint the front and sides of the clipboard with acrylic paint. I used my "effervesence" border punch to decorate the edge of the K and Co. decorative paper (berry sweet stack).  I "mod podged" the paper to the clipboard and then put two coats of mod podge over the top of it and the sides.  I then used my terrifically tacky tape and stuck it around the entire side of the board and carefully sprinkled hot pink glitter on top of it.  I tied a bow around the clip and hot glued it into place. Finally, I cut my daughter's initials out of vinyl using SCAL and the curlz font and placed it at the bottom of the board.   If I make another one (which I KNOW I will), I will shortern the paper and place the intials on just the painted surface so they show up better.  On the back I put strips of magnet down the sides so she can hang it in her locker!  :)  Isn't it cute?? :)
