Hello, Friends! It's Monika here from Life With Lovebugs with my 15 Days of Inspiration Celebration Summer Bucket List Clipboard. This Summer we're busy with day camps and playdates, but there are lots of other fun activities that we have on our Summer Bucket Lists! Each one of my kids has an on-going list of activities and adventures that they'd like to do this Summer so I made this bright and colorful clipboard to keep track of them all.
I started with the Doodlebug Designs Sunkissed Essentials Kit and a plain clipboard. This pack had so many fun prints, it was difficult to decide which one to use!
After I picked out my prints to use as the background, I covered the clipboard with Mod Podge and gently placed each paper strip on it. Be sure to smooth out the paper to eliminate any air bubbles! I cut my papers 1/4" wider than I needed and trimmed the edges with an X-Acto knife once the paper was dry. Next I added another coat of Mod Podge over to the top to seal in all the edges.
While the clipboard was drying I used the Sizzix Framelits Die & Stamps Set Notebook Paper, Tag & Ticket to create little pieces of paper for the kids to write their bucket list items on. After you stamp the lines for the paper, use your Sizzix Big Shot Machine and Magnetic Platform to die cut the pieces. Your Sizzix Sandwich would be: Magnetic Platform, Cutting Pad, paper, die, cutting pad.
Next I tied 1/4" ribbons in rainbow colors to the clip on top of the clipboard. I used 3 full sets of the rainbow colors.
Lastly, I used the doodlebug designs sticker pack to add a few more embellishments.
Now the clipboard is ready to use! Each one of the kids will be able to write their Summer wishes on a piece of paper and attach it to the board using washi tape (included in the paper pack).
Once we complete the wish, we can remove it from the board, or clip them to the top so that we can look back at all that we've accomplished over the Summer!
You can keep any blank card clipped to the top for future use, there's always more fun activities to do! What's on your Summer Bucket List this year?
I hope you enjoyed this 15 Days of Inspiration Celebration Summer Bucket List Clipboard!
