altered {clipboard}

My family was just up over the weekend and my mom was telling me about these altered clipboards that she saw and thought would be fun to make.  So I broke out the scrapbook paper and mod podge and we got to work!  I already had a clipboard on hand and my mom picked one up fairly cheap at Dollar General. 

Since I am starting a teaching job at a local preschool this fall, I thought it would be neat to make a schoolish one for me!  I started with the book print paper, laid it under the clipboard and traced around the edge.  I cut on the inside of my lines and still had to trim it slightly to fit.  Then I just used some scraps I had to add layers to it.  The faux polaroid is cut from a larger sheet of paper.  I used stickers to put my name on it.  Then used some washi tape to accent.  I finished it off with the 2 stamped owls...kid and teacher ;)
A coat of mod podge under and over everything completed the project!  I wish I would have gotten a pic of my mom's before she left, cause it turned out super cute too!
