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.
- 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?
Thanks for visiting today!
