How to Make a Custom Clipboard

Sunday, May 13, 2018


Happy Mother's Day! This day is quickly becoming my favorite holiday of the year because it is such a wonderful day to celebrate all the amazing women in my life and a day to celebrate becoming a Mother myself. Today I wanted to share a quick & easy DIY project that you can make!



Last year was an easy year for giving Mother's Day gifts because I knew all the Moms in my life would love pictures of our new baby boy (first grandchild!). This year was a bit trickier but I figured out a way to give a gift from Hudson and me!

Let's get started!

What you will need (This post may contain affiliate links- you can read my full disclosure here):
The first thing I did was sand down the clipboard to take off whatever finish was on it.



Then, I gave the clipboard two coats of paint using Fusion Mineral Paint, a paint I happened to have on hand.



Once the paint dried it was time to apply the vinyl. 


Using my Cricut machine, I created the wording I wanted, printed it out and applied it (working on a Cricut tutorial for you soon!).


After the vinyl was applied I simply used a glue gun to mount the magnets to the clipboard.




Voila! You have a custom clipboard perfect for any home to display a piece of children's artwork!



So much better than a simply magnet! And so so cute when waiting for new artwork to display!


I just so happened to have a few finger paintings my son had done that morning so this is where his portion of the gift comes in!



Pin this for later!
