Friend Clipboards...

Trying something NEW! The great thing about Papertrey Ink stamps is that you can make can make some really nice design paper with them. I have made this pattern before and make a whole sheet at one time. This time around I was able to use every last inch of my paper without any scraps. When using your rectangle nesty dies(the new LONG rectangles) you can get 8 cut outs! I started with the long rectangles on the coordinating cards, but cut then in half when I used them on the post-it notes. I do still have the other halves left from the post-its and will probably make 3x3 cards or tags. The satin ribbon is added underneath the post-it and I added some Prima's to the top with a Making Memories Pearl Brad.

I had made a measurement error on my previous post about these clipboards...they are approx. 3/8 inch thick which makes it easy to adhere 3/8 ribbon around the edges. I find with the type of adhesive that I use, grosgrain ribbon works best. I wouldn't reccomend using a sheer ribbon as the adhesive would leak thru.

Supplies: SU! cs pixie pink, choco. chip
Ink: Dew Drops, SU! choco. chip
Accessories: mini clipboards(LCS), SU! satin ribbon, Prima's, MM brad, Mike's ribbon, 3-D adhesive, Nestibility Dies-Long rectangles & Ovals

These cards and clipboards are super sweet! The colors are the pop of black and of course, the primas.
