Clip That Clutter

Clipboards are a great organizational tool, just ask any coach, and project #3 is an easy way to clean up some paper clutter. After decoupaging scrapbook paper on thrift -store purchased clipboards (75 cents each) and rubbing some stain on them, I hot glued old scrabble letters on to further help the organizational process. These are a great place to clip bills, school notices, book orders, appointment cards, etc. At the end of the week, the "this week" one should be empty and ready for items from the "this month" board to be moved over.

Oh, and what is this button about?

I am going to host my first linky party next Thursday. So be thinking of what under $100 decorating project you want to share!

And find some more frugalicious ideas at:

  1. Very cute! Love the way you used the scrabble pieces and can prioritize things.

  2. First of all, I love your page. thanks for all the great ideas.

    Second, did you take the clip part off the board to put on the paper and then attach it back? It looks fabulous and I want to try it.

  3. Great organization project! And I am pumped about your linky party!!


  4. love this idea. i can see this for soooo many different things around our nest.

    will have to think of which project i will be featuring.


  5. I love those! Once my kids get in school it will be great!

  8. Hi again. I do appreciate your first reply, but I now have another question.

    I am in the process of making my clipboard, and I am very new to Modge Podge. How do I get the paper not to bubble? It is scrapbook paper. I would not think heavy paper would do that.

    Thanks for any help.

  9. hi there :)
    i used adobe photoshop lightroom program. then i applied an "action" to the photos. this one is created by kelsey smith. if you have a particular photo that you'd like me to apply it too...i'd be more than happy :)

  10. Beautiful execution!!
    I really love these boards.
    Beyond thrifty,
