Clipboard Makeover

I have been seeing clipboard makeovers on blogs recently, and I had a few lying around so I thought since I was working on my desk makeover this would be the perfect project to bring some color and fun to my desk area!

Materials needed to make: a clipboard ( I got mine at the dollar store, I believe they are just normal size clipboard) scrapbook paper, scissors, glue or mod podge, and a foam brush!

I started first cutting an outline out for the clipboard so it matches the clipboard outline(not shown in the picture), I then just used a regular glue stick and applied this all over the scrapbook paper and laid it down in place on the clipboard, just make sure you go over it with a credit card or something to smooth everything out so you don't get any air bubbles!

The glue stick worked better than I thought, but if you have it I would use Mod Podge as I used this for my second one and it worked really well!

These were cute accessories to my desk, I think they will make great do list boards, blog post ideas etc... Have you done a makeover with clipboards recently? If you have please link your post below I would love to take a look!
