Quick Project for Book Club Mini-Clipboards

I saw these cute mini-clipboards on Echoes of Laughter via Pinterest. The kid will use them for his book club. We used the following items:
Mod Podge
Sponge brushes
Recycled Paper
Embellishment stickers
I got everything from the "Dollar Store" except for the Mod Podge. 

EASY Steps:
1. Measure the paper so that it will fit the area of the clipboard.
2. Coat the mini clipboard with Mod Pogde. 
3. Press your paper firmly on the clipboard. 
4.When dry, apply ribbon with Mod Podge.
5. Decorate with Embellishment stickers. Done!
