Ginger Snap Crafts: back to school clipboard {tutorial}

back to school clipboard {tutorial}

I shared this {back to school} clipboard over
at Brown Paper Packages a few weeks ago,
but just incase you missed it over there, here it is again.

Four out of five of my kiddos are in school now.
I can't believe it! I wish they'd slow down just a little.
My youngest daughter started kindergarten this year.
Her favorite part of school is the "homework" as she calls it.

I knew I needed a place to display all her hard work.
So today I'd love to show how I made this super
easy & cute {back to school} clipboard for her school work.

For this project you'll need:
bulldog clips, wood screws, wood board, paint
saw tooth hangers, vinyl lettering
(I used My Own Topher & Monster Paparazzi fonts.)

This really is an easy project.  First l painted my board, then let it dry.
Then I applied my vinyl lettering.  Then I used the wood screws to attach the bulldog clips.
Then I turned my board over & put two saw tooth hangers on the back.

I hung it in my daughter’s room right next to her bed.  She loves it!
