  • Tear patterned paper into pieces and adhere to back of the clipboard with the Glaze gel medium.
    Put aside to dry thoroughly then sand the edges to remove any rough or overhanging areas.

  • Repeat step one with the front of the board.

  • Apply paint to the areas of the board that weren’t covered by paper and some areas of the paper. Paint over the clip and set aside to dry thoroughly.

  • Using the Stazon inkpad, stamp two of the tag stamps onto the sheet of shrink plastic.
    Cut the tags out, punch a hole in the tops to hang them and shrink with either a heat tool or in the oven.
    Put aside to cool down.

  • Paint a coat of white paint onto the large keyhole from the Tim Holtz Grunge board and one of the Bazzill keys.
    Put aside to dry thoroughly.

  • Tie a knot on one end of the twine and thread one of the shrink tags on to it.
    Tie another know behind the tag to secure it in place.
    Measure up the twine by approximately 1 inch and tie another knot.
    Add the second tag and tie another knot behind it to secure it in place.

  • Tie a piece of the Looped trim just above each tag.

  • Using a tissue, rub ink from the Timber Brown ink pad across the surface of the key and the keyhole.
    Ink the edges of the keyhole.

  • Cut out a scrap of white card and adhere to the underside of the metallic label.
    Add the brads to each side and put aside.

  • Adhere one of the flowers, the keyhole and the metal label to the bottom left edge of the clipboard.

  • Rub the Timber Brown inkpad over the clip of the board to distress it further then seal with a coat of Glaze Medium gel.

  • Print off a set of the ‘To be done’ slips.

    Trim away excess paper and add to your board to complete.
