Board Babies Clipboard

Board Babies clipboard was created for Charlotte who is a naturopath, massage therapist and breast feeding counsellor. Her specialty is pregnancy, mothers and babies so she needed a clipboard that would reflect this theme. The clipboard is used to take patient history so it would be nice if it was a bit more interesting than a plain brown board. Her idea was for it to be covered in boobs to reflect a breast feeding theme. Funnily enough I do not have an endless stock of breast feeding pics so I had to come up with a Plan B. So out came my stash of retro cards, ric rac and vintage buttons. Not exactly what Charlotte imagined....but the end result is very cute. These covered clipboards would also work perfectly in a nursery(hanging on the wall) as an alternative traditional nursery prints. 

Plain Clipboard....boring

Cute retro cards

Baby perfect.

Start placing on the clipboard. 

Create a look that you like.

Now it is time to work very quickly. Mod Podge the board and then place your pics in the pattern that you had previously decided over the glue. Once the pics are all in place it is time to mod podge the top. I wanted to add some yellow ric rac so more mod podge. The ric rac turns on the corners so a peg helps define the curve and stop the ric rac from lifting during the drying process.

Some yellow vintage buttons were also added.

This is the finished product. It would look cute hung on a nursery wall.

Close up shows some additional detail of a blue/white fabric flower with a vintage button centre.

Board Babies Clipboard is now completed and ready to be used.
