I needed some clipboards for our WI but didnt want to spend a lot of money on them, went out shopping today to get some but couldnt see anything suitable, then in the 99p shop saw 5 of these clips for 99p (who would have guessed it in the 99p shop)
so decided to make my own
my auntie works in a factory and often brings me home old card that would normally be thrown away, but knows I like to mess around with card and papers
I cut 8 pieces of the card 11x9 ins and glued them together, then I covered back and front with papers I brought home from America last year (not sure of the make, they were in a pack of 50 for about $7) I then did a bit of paper piecing by cutting the lovely ladies off the forever young cartridge on my cricut, the clothes are from bits of scrap in my scrap box
then I lastly added a clip and actually am quite pleased with how they turned out!
would have liked to do a bit more embellishing but then I wouldnt be able to use them properly as would be a problem when writing on the paper
love to create - recycling
allsorts challenge - paper piecing
