Happy Tuesday! I thought I would share a fun project that I did for a "Pay It Forward Swap" that I am in. In this kind of a swap, the first person on the list makes something for person #2, #2 makes for #3, #3 makes for #4 etc. The girl that I had on the list loves to make and collect ATC cards, so I thought I could make her something to display her favorite card du jour. I already had everything I needed in my stash!
I started with a mini clipboard from Oriental Trading.
I removed the clip and painted the entire clipboard with blue acrylic paint and then added Tim Holtz's Crackle Paint - Weathered Wood over it. Next, I adhered my patterned papers with my ATC gun, sanded the edges and then sealed all sides and edges with Mod Podge. Once the MP was dry, I reattached the clip and added the shaker box, ribbons, chipboard letter and bling. It was fun and pretty easy to do!
