How cute is this?! Kathryn had an awesome tutorial on her blog for these Countdown to Christmas clipboards, so I had to try one for myself.
This is my take on the clipboard, and I will be doing a class on these in November for anyone who's interested!
I started by painting a clipboard with acrylic paint, then adhering designer paper on it. I used the Wintergreen designer series paper with Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke and Soft Sky cardstock. For the Christmas tree, I just cut out a triangle of Artichoke, punched some circles out of the paper I used (for decorations), then stuck some buttons on with glue dots. The star is Yoyo Yellow cs punched out with the star punch, then I put VersaMark on the whole thing and embossed it with Iridescent Ice ep. The snowflakes are from the Frosty stamp set.
I made the number tags with the small and regular tag punches and the Best Friends Numbers set. The number tags have magnets on the back that stick to two washers that I've glued to the paper. That way, you can change the numbers as Christmas gets closer! There's also an envelope glued to the back of the clipboard to hold the extra numbers.
And there it is! I wouldn't say quick and simple because it took awhile, but it is a lot of fun!
