A Very Pinteresting Christmas Day 7: The Craft, Chalkboard Clipboards


A Very Pinteresting Christmas IRL Party was a huge crafting success. I actually kept my mouth shut and didn't tell a soul what our craft was going to be.  I found this pin (private board) that was from this site and fell in love. Chalkboard activities have a tendency to make me to that this year. I also, found this template and gave my guests two options for their clipboard.- All I Want for Christmas and Things to Remember. On the Things to Remember, I had to make the lines on Word, but it turned out perfect. 

The six of us with our finished craft!

The boards needed a picture by themselves. They are simply a work of art.

I prepared the clipboards ahead of time. I really do like the spray chalkboard paint.

Then I used wax paper, wax side down. The direction called for transfer paper. I still do not have a clue what transfer paper is. 

Then I centered the design sheet over the wax paper/clipboard and begin tracing over the letters with a pencil. The wax left an impression like this. 

I took a fine white paint pen and when over where I had traced. Once dry, I lightly sanded over the letters to give it more of the chalk effect. 
Here is my finished clipboard. 

I prepared the guests a little bag that included the following: wax paper, pencil, square of sand paper and a pen. I made the label which is also the button of this linkup  using Wordle.net. Word art is another one fo my faves. 

I also included this fun card inside the bag for the door prizes. I gave a door prize for the guest who had the most recent pin and one for the guest with NO PINS, and not on Pinterest. I am so glad we were able to introduce our friend Isabella to the world of Pinterest. 

These were the door prizes. 

I actually featured these last year during last years linkup. Click on the link to find out how to make.
