Clipboard

I wanted to make a clipboard as a thank you gift for my daughters cheerleading coaches. I purchased my clipboards at Michael’s. The nice part is you are able to take the clip off, which makes painting easier:) I wanted the clipboard to look like the girls cheer uniforms, so I taped it off and painted one color at a time.

For the logo I created it in Cut and Create a program that came with my Xyron Wishblade. I wanted to scan the logo on the cheer top, but it did not scan well. I then looked for a font similar to the one on her cheer top. I made a U with an out line. Then I used a star and skewed it a little to look more like the logo. I think it turned out real close.

I cut the U and star out of contact paper (my cheap vinyl trick). This works good, because I am just going to paint on it. I started by painting the center of the U. Then I peeled off the out line and put the U center on top of what I already painted. I painted the outline and then followed the same steps for painting the star.  Finally I added some stickers letters inside the star and added the coaches name cut out of vinyl.

I covered the whole thing with a layer of Modge podge and added a ribbon to make it pretty.

I clipped a piece of copy paper for my daughter to write a little that you note.
