Scraproom Clipboard

As one of my Zutter's projects this month I had a go with the clipboard packs. I have to admit when I first got them out of the packaging I thought... no ways is my BIA going to go through this thickness! No probs though... it made pretty light work of it. I decided that two of them side by side would be on the large side so with my knife and metal ruler I cut one of the baords in half and then with my Crop-a-dile I punched holes to criss cross the ribbon to keep them together.

I made a BAI notebook so that I can scribble ideas or deadlines down when I think f them. I added some blue wooden beads to the 3/4" antique brass o'wire for decoration.

I altered a large peg to clip things I am using whilst working at the desk.

When I was in the little tat shop the other day I found these twin baskets and had one of those light bulb moments - perfect to hang off the bottom of the clipboard and take all the tools that I use all the time... just had to disguise that white plastic ugliness first!

I love it, it keeps stuff off my desk and I have something pretty to look at as a bonus. The papers are from the BasicGrey Boxer collection.
