Back To School Gifts For Teachers : DIY Clipboard

Back To School Gifts For Teachers

Have you got your back to school gifts for teachers ready to go? Can you believe it’s already time to ship the children back to school? Personally, as both a non-parent and a full time worker, I have mixed emotions. I’m definitely not ready for the school zones to be back, but at the same time, I am ready for the lunch line at Chick-fil-a to be just a little shorter. C’mon, you think so too!

In case you haven’t put your back to school gifts for teachers together, never fear! This clipboard idea is easy-peasy and will be used all year round.

  • Clipboard (I found mine in the dollar section at Target)
  • Matte Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Scrapbook or Wrapping Paper

First, cut out your scrapbook or wrapping paper. I chose this scrapbook paper that I found at Michaels, and it reminds me so much of the beautiful flowers from Rifle Paper Co! I just cut it apart leaving a small space so the flowers wouldn’t bleed into the clipboard too much.

Once it’s all cut out, place it on your clipboard how you want it. Remove it, then put a layer of Matte Mod Podge on your clipboard. Press your paper down again, and let dry for a few minutes. Then, paint another layer of Mod Podge on top to seal everything together.

All in all, this Back to School Gift for a teacher takes only a few minutes to create, and only about 30 minutes total in dry time. Also, this gift idea will cost you less than $10 — it definitely doesn’t look it!
