Washi Tape Chalkboard Clipboard

I’ve wanted to make a chalkboard clipboard for awhile, pinterest has an abundance of uses for them. I especially like the idea of using chalkboard vinyl in case I ever get tired of it. A couple weeks ago I thought about using a chalkboard clipboard for my sons chores. My plan was to add the chalkboard vinyl and embellish it a little. I had some washi tape within site so I started adding it around the vinyl. I immediately liked the look so I added a second layer. I couldn’t tell if it was too plain and needed something else or if I should leave it the way it is. So as usual I asked my husband, who by the way I’m sure loves giving me crafting advice. ;)

He thought it looked nice until I told him it was a chore chart for our son. The first thing he said was that it was too girly and that I can’t put that up in his room (you know in case a friend comes over). I liked the washi tape so much I didn’t even realize it was too girly for my son. Instead of taking the washi tape off I decided to keep it for myself.

To make the chalkboard clipboard I used:

Chalkboard vinyl (found at Hobby Lobby)

$1 clipboard

washi tape (SMASH brand found at Walmart on clearance for $1 each).

I think it would have made the perfect locker accessory back in high school or even a cute teacher gift. Now that those days are long behind me I plan to incorporate it in my craft space somehow.

    What a wonderful idea! I never would have thought of turning a plain ‘ole clipboard into a chalkboard! And the washi tape adds the perfect touch! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!

    Would you believe I have never played with Washi Tape! I have approximately 30 of these clip boards that I use in my Tastefully Simple business parties, perhaps they all need to be pimped out Washi style!
