DIY Clipboard Frame


Have you ever been frustrated on what to do with all your child's art works? Have you ever got the "Mom, do you not like my drawing/painting?" or  "Why didn't you hang it up?" as they noticed all there art work piled up on the corner of your kitchen counter. Here is an easy and cheap way to showcase and display your children's art work with style at work and at home!!! This can even give your kid/kids a boost of confidence seeing that you are proud of their work and be more inspired to be creative!!!

Materials you need:
-Mod Podge
-A piece of board cut to preferred size
-Craft papers or Wrapping paper
-Ribbon
-Clothes line clips X2 
-Glue gun
-Exacto knife/ box knife.

Here is how I made it:

I.) Arrange craft/ wrapping paper on the board as preferred and Mod Podge in place, turn back   and cut excess paper with an exacto knife.

2.) Mod Podge craft paper on to the front of clips, turn back and cut excess paper with exacto knife.

3.) Arrange your clips on top of the board as preferred and glue in place.

4.) Arrange ribbon in the middle of the back of the board as preferred, preferably 6" apart, and glue.

5.) Finish off with some embellishments like crafty flowers, your child's name or a quote on top!
