Using some craft paper, mod podge, and clipboards, I created these gift's for my son's teachers last year:
First I traced the outside of the clipboard and carefully trimmed and also trimmed around the metal bracket. I added a contrasting stripe, and monogram of the teacher's name (on both sides).
I carefully covered both sides with a coat of mod podge. (Allowing each side to dry thorougly before beginning the second side.)
I added some pieces of ribbon, just to spice things up:
Plus, I scanned a piece of the coordinating scrapbook paper, added it to a blank page across the long side of the page, added the teacher's name, printed, and trimmed the corners using scrapbooking tools.
Here is the second one:
And here it is wrapped up in some cellophane paper & ribbon.
