Be sure and scroll down as there are two clipboards on this post.
This is my second post for today! My grandchildren and I made these clipboards as "Thank You!" gifts for each of their teachers. Both clipboards used "Quick Quotes" pattern paper.
Quick Quotes Pattern Paper:
Cherry Truffle - Item Number - QQP-CT300
Cherry Truffle - Item Number - QQP-CT400
We also used small amounts of cardstock in brown, white, black, red and tan.
Assorted ribbons by Offray, where used at the top and the bottom strip of beige.
For the monkey we used the following punches:
Small circle - this was both parts of the eyes, and the inner circle of the ears.
Large scalloped circle - Head
Med. Circle - this was the outer portion of the ears.
Large oval - this was the mouth, we had to make it a little smaller so we folded it and trimmed the ends.
Tiny Bow - This was used to make one monkey a girl.
She then used a sharpie marker to make the nose and lips.
French Quarter - Item number - QQP-FH400
French Quarter - Item number - QQP- FH300
This was my grandson's clipboard he is 8.
The large flower on the top is a McGill Punch, but the inner part of the flower was fussy cut from the pattern paper.
The bottom border was also fussy cut, from the pattern paper as well.
Assorted ribbons by Offray, where used at the top.
We could have made these clipboards a lot fancier, but often when you do that it causes problems when trying to actually use the clipboards, and we wanted these to be used. Both clipboards will also need to be covered with varnish or decoupage. These clipboards will be entered in this contest:
Happy Scrapping with your children or grandchildren today! Love Penny
