Instructions:

  1. Using the ruler, draw a one inch border around your wood clip board with the pencil.
     
  2. Put masking tape all around the border to cover it. Make sure the tape is on securely by pressing down hard on the inside edges. This will keep the paint from bleeding into the border.

  3. Paint the middle of the clipboard with the Easy Chalk Board Marker. Let it dry and then apply another coat. For better results, paint a third coat.

  4. Once the chalkboard is dry, you will be seasoning the surface. To season the surface, take the white jumbo Bistro Chalk marker and cover the entire chalkboard. Let it dry. Then take a damp cloth and wipe it all off. Now your chalkboard surface is seasoned. Note: seasoning your chalkboard will prevent any ghosting from the chalk markers.

  5. Now carefully remove the masking tape covering the borders.
     
  6. Take your light blue DecoAcrylic marker and paint the borders. Don't worry if it is streaky. It adds to the affect. Let it dry.

    • Place the hearts in a circle with the bottom tip facing in. It will look like a four leaf clover. Add glue to the bottom of the circle and place it on the center. Repeat steps for the other three flowers.

  1. Now glue the large flower in the center of the clip at the top and add one small flower to each side of it.
     
  2. Glue one medium flower to each corner of the clipboard.
     
  3. Glue one small flower in the center of the clipboard side and one on the other side.
