This week is Teacher appreciation week. I am last-minute but I managed to make these easy and super fun looking clipboards with matching pens . To be extra special I attached a note (designed by me ) for my sons teachers to THANK them for their hard work. Teachers always need to write reports so I really think this is gonna be a useful gift for them.
The original idea came from HERE.
Are you ready to make your today?
You only need a few things:
– dollar store-bought clipboards
– colorful scrapbook papers
– mod- podge
I painted the clipboards silver top with spray paint which I had handy from my previous project : painting my front porch planter.
Covered the clipboard with colorful scrapbook paper and cut out some flower shapes to decorate.
I also came across a great idea the other day while I was looking around on Pinterest.
Using some inexpensive pens, I made matching pens with the clipboards.
Take the pen apart….Yep…just do it!
Cut a small paper stripe from the same color paper and roll it inside of the pen. Put the parts back together…and you are all set!
To completely finish this project, I chose a quote that I really loved and created a nice print out for each clipboard.
Here is the teacher appreciation note printable version
If you like this printable, pin it for later!
I hope I inspired you to make this great gift for teachers you know!
Oh…and did I tell you that this sweet boy was part of the project of course…:-)
Thank for all the Teachers out there!
Have an amazing day!
I have done the clipboard Modge Modge before and every time I do it always bubbles? Any clue to why it does that?
Hmm. I heard from other crafters that ModPodge can bubble over time but I have no clue as to why.I never had an issue. Try to use another type of glue for the clipboard. Have a great week.
Such a fun and functional gift for teachers! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks Ashley! Have a great day!
Thank you so much for giving us the big heart printable!!! I really love that saying and just made end of year cards for my boys teachers thanks to you. : )
Oh and I'm thinking about mod podging the printable to the back side of the clipboard!
This is perfect! I didn't get anything together for my daughters teachers in time to give it to them before the holiday break. This is something we can make over break and give to them for the new year 😉 I have tons of paper and need to get to dollar tree for stocking stuffers anyway! Pinning this for sure!
Thank you Shelley! I love pretty papers!
I love this idea!! So pretty!
