Mini Valentine Clipboard Keyring & Other Ideas

I love clipboards ….. these took me minutes to make and  are so versatile for different occasions and uses.
I made a basic template, drew round it on a good firm card and then cut out and covered both sides of the clipboard shape with self adhesive papers from a DCWV pad (see below).
Valentines keyring
The calendar tab on this clipboard is from Sarah’s Cards
Birthday Tag
This blue clipboard would make a brilliant gift tag by adding a double sided foam pad on the back. For coloured bulldog clips check out Andy's e-bay shop by clicking on the photo in the Side Bar.
Don't forget
This clpboard  is slightly larger and turned sideways could be used as a little reminder in your handbag or take off  the chain and put a magnet on the back to stick on your fridge.
Fridge Magnet
I’ve left this one empty for now, but think I will look for a very small notebook that fits it to make a mini shopping list.

This adhesive paper from DCWV is fantastic for covering mini books etc. and saves so much time.  It is also available in plain textured paper, like Bazzill.
Bulldog clips
The silver mini bulldog clips are from Wilkinson's and cost about 89p, the linked key chains are from e-bay.

They are fantastic, I need to make my OH one and attach it to his car keys and pop messages on about what he needs to remember that day as he has a memory like a sieve ;-)

I see a trip to Wilkinson's in my future LOL. I just love what you've done - and I like the idea of it being a gift tag. thank you so much for that :)

i love these mini clip boards - they look so effective, yet seem so simple you could include one for the people you don't actually buy a pressie for - but its that bit extra that makes a difference - would be great as little thank you's etc. Love the idea!
