Heartfelt Creations_Mini Clip Board

Today I have another gift set made with Heartfelt Creations new Ornamental Light Collection.  This one started out with a Formica sample.  We recently did some remodeling and I have lots of these little chipboard pieces.  I just knew there had to be something I could do with them, LOL!

And this is what it looks like now, front and back.  You will find the product list and directions below.

After I made the clip board, I decided it needed a gift bag. I used a white paper bag and edged it with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I folded the flap up to create a pocket, edging it with some cotton lace before adding the red line tape along the sides.  I cut black card stock and some Frosty Blanket DP to layer on the front and then added the pom pom trim and seam binding.  The lanterns were stamped and colored with Creative Inspirations Paint.  I also stamped and die cut some pine branches and then added some bells and pearl swirls.  The sentiment was stamped on one of the journal cards that comes with the Frosty Blanket paper. 

And, as promised, here are the directions for the clip board.
