College Crafting

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

The other night I helped my sister and some of her friends do a craft for their dorm rooms. Kimberly saw this message board idea on Design*Sponge and knew that she wanted something like that for her dorm.
We decided to use the Design*Sponge idea as a jumping off point and make the project our own. Rather than cutting cardboard and applying wallpaper and a clip we thought that it would be so much simpler to attach fun scrapbook paper to clipboards.
To make the message boards we glued the scrapbook paper to plain clipboards. Then we covered the scrapbook paper with clear contact paper so that the girls could use Expo markers to write messages on the boards. At the top under the clip part we glued some ribbon on to add some fun contrast. It was a super simple project and I am looking for an excuse to make myself one! Its the perfect little message board because friends can either clip notes to the board or write them on!

Here are the girls with their new Message Clipboards!
The Final Product!
