Directions: Using your mellow moss 12 x 12 paper, measure around the top of the clip board so that you are covering the clipboard with the mellow moss paper. This will not cover the bottom of the clipboard and that is okay because you will use some of the recollection series paper for the bottom and accents on the clipboard. Using your coordinating scraps and recollections series papers, cut out squares, punch circle or flowers using the daisy punch to create a collage effect on the top portion of the clipboard. On the bottom portion of the clipboard, measure of another piece of the patterned paper and adhere it to the bottom of the clipboard with double sided sticky tape, yes glue or mono adhesive.
-Using your craft stampin’ spots, lightly ink the chipboard letters for a fatigued look or use more pressure for a completely painted look on the letters. Heat set each letter. With the sticky pop up glue dots, adhere each letter to the bottom portion of the clipboard. Some letters will hang off the edges. I started with the “m” and worked my way out from there. A hot glue gun would also work to adhere the letters.
-Add embellishments such as ribbon, buttons, punched out flowers and brads to decorate the calendar.
-Using a Printing program, create a landscape calendar page for each month. I used Print Shop and made a calendar that was designed for only half the page so that when cropped, it would fit the clipboard. I added in special dates and changed the lettering to make it look pretty. This makes the perfect gift and would be a great gift for grandparents, parents and teachers!
