TIPsy Tuesday - Shopping List Clipboard

For today's tip, I'm sharing my latest stab at shopping lists for my scrap items.  I've tried a notebook, little notes that inevitably get lost on my desk and end up as scrap glue paper, and other strategies where I always forget things or end up with so many lists I don't know where to start.

Finally this weekend, I took a small clipboard and turned into a list gathering place for needed items.  Will it make me more efficient in using those Hobby Lobby coupons for needed adhesive rather than a fun embellishment?  We'll see.  Hopefully it will make shopping as quick and easy as this project.

These matching papers from October Afternoon match my bedspread and coordinated for a quick job. 

Project Notes:
  • Since the paper matched the clipboard, I didn't worry about covering the top near the clip.
  • I cut the papers close to the size of the clipboard and adhered them with spray adhesive.
  • Then I sanded the edges with an emory board.
  • The flower is a white Petaloo flower dipped in diluted Baja Breeze classic ink.  I added several coats to get it the desired color.
  • To adhere the flower, I drilled two small holes and ran a thread all the way through the chipboard and ribbon.
  • The other buttons are adhered with glue dots.
  • The ribbon on the clip covers up the names "Staples" on the clipboard.

Now the clipboard hangs by the door of my guest bedroom/craft room.  I have notes on it already with things I need to buy or add to my next Stampin' Up! order. 

How do you keep up with your craft shopping wish list?

  1. That is so much nicer than the scraps of paper I pin up on my bulletin board!
