Years ago, I labeled file folders to hold pages I pulled from magazines and cut outs from newspapers. Now, I use Pinterest to pin things I want to look at in the future and remember where I put them. Remembering where I put them is really the key.
So, I decided to buy three clipboards and a bottle of Mod Podge. I already had some paper and craft paint. Anyone who does scrapbooking would probably have lots of potential materials and ideas for this project.
The Crafty Quilter gave great directions and the only things I did different were to paint all the sides first, elevate the clipboards on cans to keep them off the table for drying purposes, and used carpenter clamps to hold the clips open to dry.
I use mine for embroidery patterns and thread colors, my daughter uses hers for custom basket orders, and my granddaughter keeps drawing paper in hers. Nice, easy craft for those longer days that are coming up.
I’m not one to spend hours on Pinterest looking through pins, or worrying about followers, but I find it an extremely useful tool to organize and maintain things I’m interested in. I think of it as a ‘green’ paper-less filing system for hobbies and crafts.
Happy crafting, gardening or whatever brings a smile to your face. 🙂
