Lisa - Christmas clipboard project

Good morning! Lisa here with another festive project to share-- this time it's a Christmas-themed clipboard, made using the Simple Stories Claus & Co range, and fitting in perfectly with this week's theme of table/tree/home decorations. :)

As you'll see, it's a very quick & easy project, but ideal for this time of year when there is so much to remember-- because making a list (and checking it twice, naturally!) and having it somewhere you can see what needs to be done is super-helpful.

I used an A5-sized clipboard (from Warehouse Stationery) and covered it in some red starred paper. The "Dear Santa" list sheet is cut from the 2x12, 4x12 and 6x12 Elements sheet, and slipped under the bulldog clip at the top to hold it in place. I glued a red & white gingham button to the centre of the top bulldog clip, and added another smaller bulldog clip at the side. That holds a little cluster of embellishments- a shiny gold heart, and a Christmas tag with a candy-cane striped tie and a little bling star atop the tree.

A detailed shot is below:

Super-simple, and a great project to get the kids involved with, because there's nothing too fiddly or complicated to contend with. Because the "Dear Santa" sheet is removable, as are the side cluster of embellishements, the base clipboard could easily be altered/adapted to suit other times of the year as well: just change the theme of the accessories!

Thanks so much for looking, and I'll see you again soon.

 Lisa :)
