TUTORIAL FOR CHIPBOARD CLIPBOARD SWAP - You can make your own !

Post by AdminBarb on Mon Feb 20, 2017 1:37 pm

For those of you who missed the sale on the Clipboard Sets, or choose to make your own, here are the dimensions to cut .

2-1/2x1-3/4in, Small one

4x2in, Medium

and 5-1/2x4in. Largest .

Each chipboard should have the edges INKED (unless you are using BLACK or Pre-Colored Chipboard that is solid) thoroughly so that you run the ink (or paint is okay too) around the edges and slightly onto the surface of each board on the front and the back. Each chipboard should have the edges ROUNDED just like the ones in the purchased packages. ROUND your edges before inking or you will have to re-do the rounded parts !

Cover the boards with pretty paper on each side. To do this, trace the board on the back of your paper, and then cut the papers SLIGHTLY INSIDE THE LINE !! You want to show a tiny bit ( about 1/16 th of an inch ) of the edges that you have inked on each side of the board.

The reason for leaving a little edge is that you will see that it looks much better and does not leave over-lapping margins that will peel up or look "ratty" . Also, it really look TACKY to try to cover these like they were gift boxes and try to "wrap" the paper around the edges. I have seen people do this and it does not look professional at all.

Please use Paper Clips that are Size appropriate. You may use Brass, Silver, or Colored CLips that coordinate with your papers. Please dont put a red paper clip on a board that has Green paper unless you are making a Christmas THeme !!

Please coordinate your note paper with your cardstock that covers your boards. It does not look good to put neon orange post-it notes on a board you have covered with pastel blue baby paper ! Ha Ha !! lol!

I will add some photos here soon.... no worries !

Then we will cover the embellishments too.

Here are a couple of ideas for you on making your paper pads for your Clipboards

Cut pretty printer letterhead stationery to fit your boards and stamp them !  (see butterfly paper)

Purchase small pads or post-it notes and stamp on them !!  (see small yellow pad )

This is how a completed clipboard should look.  Front and back both are covered with papers and lightly embellished. Edges are painted and inked. Slight margin of inked edges are showing where the paper is not glued on. This allows complete coverage without difficult overlapping.

Coating with Mod-Podge or Lacquer is optional.
