Go ahead and laugh mini clipboard

I can't believe it is the last day of November. Time is just flying by lately. Well I wanted to share a treat stick with you.  I am using it to throw my hat into the ring for  Mae Sunshine Designs who is having a design team call.
This was really hard I just wasn't sure what I wanted to create. So, I went digging through this bin and I found the parts to make this.

 I got the clipboard part at Archivers. I know it was on clearace I think I paid about $.75 for it. I used quick dry ink chalk for the edges and then covered it in paper. I have had the paper for years and kind of forgot about it.  I adhered the paper down and then trimmed and sanded it.  Then I reinked the edges.  I cut the another pattern for the square and inked that as well.  I added a fun stamp that says " Go ahead and laugh" One thing I love about stamps is you can bend them.

 I just curved it slightly while putting it on my clear block, added my ink and stamped right on it.   The final touch was some ribbon since I didn't have seam binding.
