Here is a cute tutorial on jazzing up those dull clipboards. This would be perfect for the middle, high, or college aged student in your life. This is so easy because you can customize it so they can show off their personal tastes. All you need is some clipboards, mini or regular size. If you plan on making several of these, you can make a template to use for cutting out the paper to go around the clip part of the board. Now for the fun part. Choose two sheets of scrapbook paper to cover the clipboard. One sheet for the top and one for the bottom for contrast. Trace the paper and cut it to fit the board. Coat the clipboard with Mod Podge and then apply the paper (give the paper a really good rub down to avoid bubbles.
Now add contrasting paper and your monograms for flair!
Cover with another coat of Mod Podge to give the scrapbook paper protection.
Add a bow with some cute ribbon at the top.
