The Color Purple

Needing a small bulletin board, I found inspiration in a challenge to use my favorite color to craft something.  

I had an extra long clipboard in my stash and all it needed was to be covered in this pretty fabric to become something special.  I used homemade 'mod podge' to adhere the fabric to the clipboard.  I chose to leave the clip in its original rusty shabby glory.

My wee cork boards are two gold frames from Old Time Pottery.  Tho they don't show in the photo, what looks like white lines all through the fabric around the flowers are actually gold lines.  So when I spray painted the larger frame I did only one coat so the gold still came through.  The smaller frame has a heavier coat of paint, though you can still see just a bit of gold.

I've glued the frames to the clipboard with heavy duty glue.

Perfect for the corner next to my computer desk!


  1. Turned out really cute, Teri! Love the colors and the fabric. I used to sew a lot of my clothes when I was growing up and one of my favorites was an empire waist dress out of fabric very similar to the fabric you chose for this project. Your bulletin/clip board is a very clever idea!

  2. What a cute idea!!! Purple is my favorite color too!!! Teal comes in a very close second!!

  3. Such an awesome make, I loved visiting.
