Decorative Doll Clip Boards

These little decorative doll clip boards are fun to make. Be creative and have your child help you decorate them for their favorite doll(s).
  • mini clips (found with scrapbook supplies)
  • cardstock
  • glue for paper
  • glue for metal
  • ink
  • lined paper
  • brush or a piece of cardstock to spread your glue
  • ribbon and stickers to decorate the clip board
To make a mini pad of paper:
  1.  Cut lined paper to 2 1/2" x 3 1/4".  You'll need at least 5 sheets of paper. 
  2.  Line the paper up 
  3. Add glue to the top edge of the paper only.
  4. Add a clip and let the glue dry.
To make the decorative clip boards:
  1. Cut one piece of cardstock  3" x 3 5/8"
  2. Round corners of the cardstock with scissors or a corner rounder tool.
  3. Brush the front side of cardstock with a thin layer of glue. (I like to use a scrap piece of cardstock to spread the glue evenly.)
  4. Adhere decorative paper onto this side of the cardstock, smoothing as you lay the paper down.
  5. Brush the back of the cardstock with a thin layer of glue.
  6. Adhere decorative paper to the back of the cardstock, smoothing as you lay the paper down.
  7. Decorate the clip board with small silk flower, stickers and or additional accent paper.
  8. Ink around the edge of the clipboard.
  9. Glue the back of the clip onto the center of the board.  I used this glue: 

  10. Allow clip to dry overnight.
  11. Add your mini pad of paper to the clip board. 
  12. Write a special note onto your mini pad of paper.  
  13. Put it into your doll's hand
