How do you get the paper to fit so nicely around the clip?? I wanted to do these at a stamp camp, but could not figure out how to cut the paper nicely so it. Please share how you make yours look so perfect :)

Getting the paper around the clip can be painstaking. Each clipboard is set up slightly different. What I did is took a some printer paper and made measurements and create a mock piece, made sure it fit and then traced it onto the DS paper.
The measurements I made were:
* Measure from each side where the clip begins.
* Measure from each side where the front of the clip is.
* Measure from each side where the slant of the clip ends.
Line up all the measurements and cut your mock up.
If the mock up fits perfectly place it on TOP of your DS paper and trace the clip cutout.
Cut the DS paper, make sure it fits on the clipboard before using modge podge to adhere it.
I used SNAIL Adhesive to put the DS paper on then used modge podge to seal it all. If you do this make sure that you put SNAIL adhesive on every edge of the DS paper.
I also used the paper sander (nail buffer works too) to round the corners. This kept me from having to cut the paper before adhering it.
I have to put some directions together for a stamp camp but after that I will try to draw up some directions of how I did my measurements so they make more sense.
