Amy Butler Clipboard

I LOVE just about anything Amy Butler and work a lot with Amy Butler scrapbook paper and therefore have a lot of scraps. I decided to cover a old clipboard with my scraps, so now my once icky clip board is pretty and cheerful.


Clip board
Heavy Stock Scrap Book Paper
Spray adhesive (use this outside it is stinky but does work the best, other glues bubble)
Razor blade
Embellishment for top of clipboard
Paper cutter to trip paper when necessary

All you do is work your pieces like a puzzle, arrange them all first and then just glue them to the board. Once dry take a exacto and trim around the edges, I rounded my edges to give it a more finished look.

Happy Crafting!

I'm with you. I love Amy Butler's designs too. I've used a lot of her fabric, but I have some of her scrapbooking papers too! Your project is beautiful!

I am a big Amy Butler fan too. I'll have to look into her papers. I did about 15 of these clipboards for Christmas last year. Love them!
