Something snappy!

Today I'm going to share with you how I decorated my clipboard using the the Quirky Kit Lite Kit. 

First of all you will need a chipboard clipboard as these are the more sturdier type. 

Next you will need to choose your desired 12x12 paper and Ephemera to decorate. 

Start of by covering the clipboard in double sided tape. 

Next leaving room at the bottom,so it covers the top nicely, stick the paper to the board.
I chose Pink Fresh Studios Life Noted Checkerboard from the Quirky Main Kit.

You will need to use a craft knife or scissors to cut the paper so the clip bit sticks out of the top.

Next flip the clipboard over and fold the paper over tightly securing it with double sided sticky tape.

Now the next bit may be a little fiddly! Stand the board up right and squish the card so it folds over and follows the curve of the corner of the clipboard. 

Turn it over and as you can you may need to tape the cardstock down using cello tape.

Flip the board back over to the front and where the excess card is under the clip, carefully cut with scissors or a craft knife to nicely finish it off.(mine isn't very neat but it does get covered up by embellishments anyway) 

Next repeat the paper laying process on the bottom part of the board with either a bold colour or another pattern, I choose some gold wrapping paper I had left over from Christmas.  

Last stage is to decorate so take out your ephemera or embellishments  have chosen to stick to the same kit so I used PFSLN (Pink Fresh Studios Life Noted) Rubber Charm Stickers, PFSLN Die Cuts and PFSLN Washi  Stickers.

And here is the finish result all ready to keep them special memorabilia safe.
