At work I see people who have their children's artwork pinned up on their walls. I thought it would be a cute idea to create some way that a parent could highlight their child's art on a rotating basis without putting holes in the artwork.
I created this using a thrifted clipboard and free paint swatches. I chose the colors to have a faded, beach theme.
The clipboard is roughly 9" x 12 1/2" so I first trimmed 23 paint swatches into 2 1/4" squares. Next, I cut each square into rectangles that were 3/4" x 2 1/4".
I arranged the strips in a pattern on the clipboard until I was happy with the color combinations.
With three additional paint swatches, I die cut the word "DAD" and adhered them with Mod Podge as well.
I created this in honor of Father's Day but you can add any name or leave it blank. This could hang on a wall and new children's artwork could be easily added.
