mini clipboard from coasters

Well as most of you with children like me know, its time for "Back to School" and with that being said I too went back to work. I have the privilege to work at my church's preschool. What an amazing privilege to share the words of Gods grace with Jesus little lambs. This year I am the teacher for 12 amazing two year old children. With that being said, I do have an assistant that is AWESOME.
We are in our first week and I wanted to share with you something that one of the mommies made for me. I thought is was so special. With all the butterflies that the children have I know that the teachers have a little too. At the end of the day it made me smile.

I thought the idea was so cute. As I thanked the mommy and she told me what they were made of I decided to make them for my children's teachers too. So after work I ran over to Michael's and purchased only the binder clips and post its ( I was determined to use everything else that I already had in my craft room.)

Post its, binder clips, brads, Mod Podge


and these paper flowers that might look familiar because they were left over from my awaiting Easter post. Lastly but most importantly she told me that one of local restaurants Taco Mac had these long rectangle shaped coasters. So I asked the man if I could purchase a few and instead he just gave them to me. Sweeett!! Free!

So after rummaging my paper supply I traced the coaster, cut it out and began to Mod Podge it down.

I added a binder clip


Then paper flowers attached to the binder clip.



This is them after personalizing them.

Sending them in the morning with the boys.
