Good morning, it's Melissa here! I hope you're enjoying all the fun Christmas projects we've been posting. This week is all about handmade Christmas gifs, and I chose to turn a boring old office clipboard into a Christmas shopping list holder.
I used the Simple Stories DIY Christmas Collection, which you can find in the shop here, and Smash washi tape (black with small white polka dots). I used the American Crafts version of this extra sticky tape to adhere the patterned paper onto the clipboard. I stuck the washi on the top and bottom of the board, mostly because it was easier than removing the clip.
Here is the clipboard with my shopping list:
I used the phrase "Making a List" from the song "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", because I wanted the list to be of people to buy for, not items to buy. I used American Crafts Thickers in black glitter from my stash.
