Christmas List Clipboard (Artfull Crafts)

Good morning!  I'm up on the Artfull Crafts bog today with a handmade Christmas gifts, and I chose to turn a boring old office clipboard into a Christmas shopping list holder.  

I used the Simple Stories DIY Christmas Collection, which you can find in the shop here, and Smash washi tape (black with small white polka dots).  I used the American Crafts version of this extra sticky tape to adhere the patterned paper onto the clipboard.  I stuck the washi on the top and bottom of the board, mostly because it was easier than removing the clip.  

Here is the clipboard with my shopping list:

I used the phrase "Making a List" from the song "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", because I wanted the list to be of people to buy for, not items to buy.  I used American Crafts Thickers in black glitter from my stash.
