Welcome to the 12 Days of Doodlebug – DAY 2
I am so excited about this 12 day series that I am doing here on my blog – I LOVE DOODLEBUG and I have been a user and collector for the past 15 years!! Anything made by them delights and excites me – I love their bright, happy colors and incredibly cute icons and borders they make!! I thought doing this series would be a perfect way for me to lead up to and celebrate my birthday with you – There will be prizes – more on that at the end!!!
DAY 2 – Altered Clipboard Decoration
Please click on picture to have it made bigger – so you can see the details!!
I used this adorable 5″ by 7″ clipboard from Pebbles, Inc:
that I decided to spruce up for a decoration!! I looked at this sheet of Doodlebug – Hello Sunshine! Designer Paper:
I knew that any of these 4 by 6 images would look cute on this clipboard. I chose the 2nd one down on the right side!! I cut it out and layered it on a piece of Blueberry Doodlebug cardstock that measured 4 1/2″ by 7 1/2″. I left it bigger on the top on purpose so that I could use this Scalloped edge punch from Stampin’ Up! to create the top border!
I adhered the 4 by 6 image I had chosen to the blue background. I added 2 stickers from the This n’ That sticker sheet to the bottom – one was the word beautiful and the second one was a tag that said sunshine!! I added a little piece of twine to the hole in the tag sticker!
Then I cut 7″ lengths of ribbons from my ribbon scrap jar in coordinating colors and tied them to the circle in the top metal part of the clipboard! I tied them with double knots and then trimmed them!! I had a small plastic easel and that is what my finished product rests on!! Please click on the pictures to make them bigger and easier to see the details!!!
Sounds like a lot of work but it really was pretty easy – the hardest part was choosing an image!!
There you go – I used Doodlebug products to make a Home Decor project!! Stay tuned for Day 3 where I will be adding one more thing made for my Holiday/Seasonal Decor table!! And I will post a picture of how it all looks together!!
