Washi Tape Clipboard

Earlier this year, I joined Team Washi and made a super cute washi tape keyboard.  This project left me with plenty of washi tape and the desire to do more with it.  Clipboards seemed to be a popular thing to cover with washi tape.  So I jumped on that band wagon as well after I came up with a brilliant idea on how I would use that clipboard.

To get started, I picked up a plain clipboard at Target.

I painted it white and then covered the entire front with washi tape.  Can you tell I tried to make a design?  {It's a field of flowers with the sun shining.}

Initially, I wasn't going to do anything on the back.  But then I was inspired by all the creative quilt backs I have seen on Pinterest and decided to add some tape there as well.  I also taped around the entire edge as well.

Now about my brilliant idea - in my craft room, I use my ironing board as my base for working on sewing projects.  The ironing board was beside the bed so I would lay the pattern or instructions on the bed so I could glance at them as I worked.  But then I rearranged the room and moved the ironing board into the corner.  I hung the clipboard on the wall in that same corner and use it to hold the instructions for whatever project I am working on.  

Don't you agree that is brilliant?  {Do you spy the following projects in this picture? - Scrappy Lampshade, Small Button Jars, Magazine Holders}

And when I'm not working on a project, it's a piece of art.

I am sharing at these great parties and Wednesday's Adorned from Above link party
