More Graduation Gifts!! While at the Dollar store earlier this week I found these plain mini clipboards. I bought a couple of them so I could decorate them and add them to the gifts for my niece and cousin for their graduations. While Pinterest this week I searched for ideas on how to decorate the clipboards and came across this blog: Marta Writes. I scrounged up some scrapbook paper and printed out 2 pictures: 1 a collage of Paris and girly things, and 1 of a Graduation Subway Art.
For the second clipboard I used 2 pieces of hot pink cardstock and modpodged it onto the each side of the clipboard. I cut out the scroll pattern from Green cardstock and modpodged it on top of the pink!
Just like my Previous Earring Holder gift idea that you can check out here this is an earring holder I am making for my cousin for her High School Graduation! I am trying to twist hooks into the bottom of the frame but so far I’ve only been able to get one in…Does anyone have any tips on how to make it easier to get these hooks in? I painted the wooden frames a fuchsia color and hot glued the costume jewelry onto the front. It gives it a very classy posh look…I want to keep it it is so cute… but I don’t have enough earrings for it! I will post pictures of the finished products since I have one more to fix for my niece. This is really easy and cheap to make too… I bought the frame at a garage sale for $0.50, the jewelry and mesh screen came from my grandmother’s house so it was free…the most expensive part of this project was the can of spray paint..which was about $4 at walmart!
Here is the other Earring Holder I am making for my niece for her graduation gift:
It is the same color as the one above but I just took the picture with a different camera…
I’m so happy as to how these turned out! I would love to keep them for myself!
