Yes, I was inspired by Donna's clipboard on her White Christmas Tree of Gratitude. Donna used a full size vintage clipboard and displayed a black and white Christmas photo of her parents.
I wanted to use a smaller version of this idea so I purchased a cheap clipboard from Kmart for $1.69. The new clipboards are much more flimsy, lighter in color, and have a different type of clip than the older ones.
As you can see, the clip has been cut off and the board cut into fourths.
Next, I used a piece of sandpaper to round out all the corners and smooth the newly cut edges.
I darkened the clipboards with some Old English Furniture Polish with scratch cover. I then used a bulldog clip tied with a short piece of ribbon to finish my projects.
This is also an old 1960's Christmas photo card of my cousins.
Besides Christmas photos, favorite or vintage Christmas cards would also be fun!
My re-purposed tree may not be the most beautiful tree in the world but I think it will be fun!
