I'm back with a finished product!!

I have the babies in bed, and asleep. I have had my shower and finished my quiz, 100%. Now I am in the bed, my office :( , and ready to post.

Almost everyday one of my two babies either draws me something at school, at Sunday School, children's church or just doodling at home. My fridge is covered in drawings, that eventually fall on the floor and usually end in the trash. I have no place for stuff!!

While looking around on a blog I have in my reader I stumbled upon another blog called Brown Paper Packages. Being curious, I did some looking around and found these art clip boards. How cool and easy do these look like to make, so I did.

I bought a piece of 1x2x36 from Joann's, with a coupon, and also some small clothes pins.

I measured the board and cut it in half with my dremel. Next, I spray painted both pieces of board and 6 clothes pins, front and back in black. After they had all dried, i measured the boards again and drilled small holes.

I took some burlap like ribbon I bought off the target Christmas clearence and threadded it through the holes and knotted the ends.

To decorate the clothes pins I cut small strips of paper and fed the pieces through my xyron sticker maker and attached them to the front of the clothe pins. So easy!

I attached the clothes pins to the boards with E6000 glue. When the glue dried, i took some small embellishments i printed off of the cricut, threaded them through the xyron sticker maker and added them for decoration.

Here are the finished products!

Don't know if I like the ribbon??
What do you think??
