Oh, How Pinteresting! {Link Up}

Linking up again with the lovely ladies behind Oh, How Pinteresting!  Check them out and post your latest creation with a Pinterest inspiration! 

Here is mine...

And here is how it turned out...

I really like this!  Although, my uses for a clipboard are far and few between, but maybe I will use it more because it came out so cute! Not to mention that the whole damask pattern is a thing of mine :) 

Here is how I did it....
I gathered my supplies:
Mod Podge
Nail File
Scrapbook paper of choice
I started by taking my clipboard and sanded it a little bit to rough it up and help the mod podge to adhere to the surface. 

Then I went and measure the scrapbook paper out and trimmed up the majority of the extra with scissors.  I only left it so a little would be hanging over the edge(which will be filed off later). Put a heavy coat of mod podge down(I didn't do it thick enough the first time and I got bubbles) over the entire board, and laid my paper down on top of it. I smoothed it out as best as I could with the flat edge of a ruler, Sarah used a pencil in her tutorial, whatever can get bubbles out is great. 
It is still pretty bubbly, so I am not sure I used enough mod podge on the under side.  If I did it again, I would make sure to really put it on thick.  Let it sit for about 30 minutes, then come back to file off the edges that are hanging over.  I used a nail file for this and held it at an angle against the edges of the clipboard and just went down the line.
After you have filed the edges off, you will need to put another 2-3 coats of mod podge all over.  Don't forget the edges so that way you make sure they seal to the board!
Let it dry, and then you are all done! You have yourself a cute NOT BORING clipboard that you customized to your liking! Yay!
