Anything But A Card Challenge #4

Hi All, Happy Saturday. I hope you have some great weather and awesome plans to go with it. Or maybe some "Crafting" Time..Those are always welcome.

For the February ABAC - It is an Altered Clipboard Challenge. You can alter a regular or mini clipboard to either display a photo or as a message center or even to just use it as a good ole clipboard.

Here is my altered clipboard. I plan to use this for my vacation pictures that I can keep rotating.

Sorry for the not so great photo...

I cut out a piece of pure poppy Card stock (4.5x6.5) and then scored it on the inside at ever 1/4" and then using those score marks I cut out the inside panel using my Fiskars blade knife. I then put some foam dots on it and adhered it to the clipboard. So that way when I want to change the picture, I can simply remove this and insert a new one.

I then embellished the clipboard with some flowers, some tim holtz tape and a old ticket that I had and also with some butterflies. I tied some ribbon to the clipboard handle to jazz it up a bit more.

Here are some close up pictures,
