The twins informed me that they liked clipboards, too! They also like to play games like Yahtzee that require them to keep score. So, I got the idea to create altered mini-clipboards that they could use when they are playing games. Of course, I couldn't leave Natashia out since she technically didn't have an altered MINI-clipboard!
I covered the front of each clipboard with their favorite colors and added a Yahtzee scorecard on top. I adhered a colored domino to the clip and then filled the ring with ribbons.
For the backs of the clipboards, I used some dice patterned paper, Scrabble tile letter stickers, a piece of Monopoly money, a Clue card and some game stickers.
These were so fun to make, I decided to also make one for a teenage friend of mine. Blue is her favorite color.
And for an added touch, I altered a mini-paper pads by covering the top edge with a matching piece of patterned paper.
I love the way these turned out. My only regret is that I didn't make one for me as well - it would be perfect for keeping score when Robbie and I play Canasta or Scrabble or Dominoes! I just might have to add this to my list of things-to-make next year.
Have you altered anything lately?
