Being a teacher myself, I know that the last thing Nate's teachers want for Christmas is a mug!! This year I decided to get a little crafty.
It was fun to be creative.
I started out with a plain brown clipboard from Wal Mart. Spent a whole 97 cents each! I found some coordinating scrapbook papers and ribbon to match. I also picked up some white and brown tulle, just to add a little more texture.
I cut the paper into smaller pieces, allowing the paper to hang over the edges. I used Mod Podge to attach the paper to the clipboard. Then I put several coats of Mod Podge over the top. At least three coats.
