Handmade Gifts

Every year at Christmas I say that I'm going to make a few gifts and I never get around to it, this year I finally took the time to make clipboards for Johnson & Jonah's teachers. I started with .97 cent clipboards from WalMart then added scrapbook paper from my stash, a little Mod Podge, a little ribbon and a few embellishments. These were so easy to make, I finished both of them in about an hour. I love how they turned out and the fact that they only cost a dollar to make is even better. Next time I think I will try spray adhesive instead of Mod Podge, I had never used this before and boy does it stink!!! Today is the boys last day of school until January 5th, YEAH!! We are going Christmas shopping this afternoon, to Grandma's house tomorrow and are going to bake all day Sunday which should be very interesting this year, wish me luck! Have a great Friday!!!

The teachers will love those! I used to be a teacher, and I used clipboards all the would have been fun to have something cute like that!

Cute clipboards! I see these all over Canton each year. Love them.

Spray adhesive rocks. But you have to use it outside 'cause it stinks way worse than Mod Podge and is flammable.
