When I saw this adorable "Post It" mini clipboards tutorial, I thought they were perfect for "end of the year" gifts for my kid's teachers. I was already planning on making the clipboards and thought that a mini, matching clipboard was the perfect addition.
I also made myself a set to have around my workspace and it's come in very handy. They make a great decorative, as well as functional, addition to the space. I am really happy with they way they turned out.
One tip: When I went to Chili's to get some coasters they told me that they only have them during a special they have during April. So, I just used the back of a legal pad for my mini clipboard base. It's the same idea and I think is a little more sturdy than the coasters would've been. Plus, I didn't want to run to a bunch of restaurants asking if they had 3 coasters they were willing to give me. One legal pad was enough to make all my mini clipboards.
My boys can't wait for the end of the school year for a more worthwhile reason now!
