Chalkboard Coaster Clipboards

I’m sure you have seen these guys all over Pinterest. The ones that I have seen actually are just mod podged with scrapbook paper which is adorable, but I decided to turn one side into a chalkboard. The best part about this project is it costs next to nothing. I nicely asked our waiter at a restaurant if I could have some extra coasters πŸ™‚

Grab a paint brush, a piece of scrapbook paper, chalkboard paint and a foam brush.

Start by painting one side of the coaster. It will take at least three coats to get it to look the way you want it too. The picture below is after one coat.

Trace your coaster onto your paper once the paint it dry. Then mod podge it and use small scissors or an exacto knife to cut around the edges.

backing Then add a small binder clip to the top and you have a chalkboard cliboard
