Hi Peeps, took a break from baking today to make this sweet little recipe caddy. I’ve had these little clip boards for quite some time so I decided to paint it up, create the background and laminate to the clipboard so that I can actually use it :-) I used JustRite Homemade Treats Borders and Center to decorate my clipboard.
After constructing the background I stamped my Baked with Love sentiment and cut it using Spellbinders™ Standard Circles Small #3. I outlined that layer with a circle cut from Spellbinders™ Pinking Circles LG #2. After stamping the Just For You border from the JustRite set, I cut/embossed using Spellbinders™ Classic Scalloped Circles LG #3. Because this project could not take any dimension I simpled glued everything down to my background then laminated over it. The clipboards came from the $1 bin at A. C. Moores and I love them because you simply unscrew the clipping mechanism which let me get my background down without having to piece around it! So, while I was at it, I made a couple of recipe cards with the left over scraps and a bookmark for my recipe book from the paper ensemble I used.
Here’s the backside of my clipboard and bookmark. I love that the clipboard is designed to stand up. If you ever buy one that is not designed to stand, all you’ll need to do is drill a hole and insert a small piece of dowel. :-)
