My son and wife are busy busy and they are always changing what they are busy at, so as Christmas rolls around I simply cannot keep up with what is in and what is out, so other than a little of this and that, they get money. I am always trying to figure out a new and creative way to present the monies. This year for me blackboards are in, I love them and love that they present themselves to so many things, so when my friend and neighbor presented me with a bin of old craft supplies, included were A LOT of the snap barrettes you can find at Michael's to decorate. I took a couple of them out and placed them on my table so I could figure out what I could do with them. I had a receipt and $5.00 on the table also and omg I had an idea, why not use one of my mini chalkboard blanks and create a money clip.
There were an assortment of sizes, I used the large one, perfect fit. I used Bistro Markers by Marvy on the blackboard blank, they are permanent in so much as they don't wipe off with a cloth as chalk does. I also discovered that the skinny Bistro's will work in my Copic Airbrush, that is how I did the snow, oh boy oh boy.
when the bill is snapped into the clip it is a snug fit, so it will not fall out.
I adhered the chalkboard to the clip with my trusty glue gun.
look at that! If you do not have mini chalkboards, you can use a couple of layers of chipboard and then decorate cardstock for the top. It would be fun to clip these to the Christmas Tree too. Happy Sunday, Hugs
