I am so excited to finally have finished one of the big projects I had been planning for since summer! I bought a class set of clipboards back before school began with the intention of modge-podging some pretty paper on them and adding some colorful ribbons and all that jazz. Well, the clipboards sat in my garage for several months before I finally decided I needed to take them out and get to work! After lots of thinking (and trying to minimize the time I would have to put into making them), I decided to do without the pretty scrapbook paper for a few reasons.
1. I had a hard time finding paper that I really liked.
2. I can just imagine how messed up they would be by the end of the year thanks to some of my sweet kiddos.
3. Just doing ribbon was a whole lot easier!
So I just brought out the bags of ribbon I have (I love ribbon almost as much as I do glitter!), and set to work!
Thanks so much to Kristen for the adorable clipboards label! I love it and it goes perfectly with the colorful ribbons!
I am borrowing the whiteboard from my best friend's roommate (Thanks Rachel!), and the top of it was a little scratched, so I covered it up with some pretty polka dot ribbon! The clipboards basket (which I got from Target) fits perfectly underneath!

My students have been writing using their whiteboards as a hard surface when they've been sitting on the carpet for our writing mini-lessons, but I was anxious to give them another surface to write on so that they wouldn't scratch up their whiteboards.
I am SO happy with how these turned out! They were super simple to make, yet they added a nice touch of color and fun to my previously boring clipboards!

She always makes the cutest things!
