My oldest dd is going to a birthday party this weekend and wanted to make a gift for her friend. She wanted to buy her some chocolate and then give her a little something extra... so we brainstormed and came up with the Artsy Clipboard for her. Her friend loves to draw and is very artistic, so we figured a clipboard will come in handy... I know I'm always using mine.
We covered the clipboard with paper from BAsic Grey Periphery - she loves birds, so this was perfect for her! Plus I love these colors, the green is so funky! We modgepodged it to the clipboard and added alpha stickers from the Basic Grey pack, and a sticker that I had in my stash from $1 Tree. I added one small bow to the top of the board - my dd didn't want any ribbon, but we compromised!
The chipboard box measures 4x2 and is covered with basic grey paper as well. We covered all the chocolates with dp, and a happy birthday message, then bagged them in cellophane with a ribbon. The chipboard box will double as a pencil holder. We added a green monogram to the front as well.
The card was just a simple one made with a 5.5x5.5 embossed card base from DCWV. I used scraps to decorate the front of the card, stamped the sentiment and added a paper bird. The set also has a personalized bookmark that you can see in the first picture.
This project was especially fun because I got my dd involved. She really doesn't spend much time stamping with me, but I think she really enjoyed this project. I know she wants me to find some more clipboards so she can decorate one for herself!
