Repurposed Inspiration: Clip Board Picture Frame/Easel

clip board feature2

I’m always trying to think of a new way to use stuff and I got the idea to turn this Dollar Store clip board into an easel to display photos or inspiring sayings.

This 5 x 7 clip board has been sitting in my repurposing basket for a long time!  I didn’t know if my idea would work…but that has never held me back before.  LOL

I used different shades of patina paint and colorful magazine images glued with Zip Dry glue to make a pretty background and covered the clip with bright purple patina paint.

After everything was dry I attached a sturdy piece of cardboard (that was covered with a magazine image) using hot glue about 1 inch down from the top of the clipboard.

Next, I cut a piece of ribbon approx. 2 inches long and used hot glue to attach it to the clipboard and the cardboard easel.

I will use this easel to display inspiring or funny thoughts for greeting cards in the future!
