*  patterned paper or paper from a digital kit

*  spray paint or acrylic paint
*  painter's tape
*  black ink pad
*  black cardstock

step one: decide if you want to decorate your clipboard or leave it plain. i used one that i had already painted with black acrylic paint. jodie spray painted hers. so, first she covered the metal part with painter's tape.

step two: pick out your papers. jodie used the american crafts, blue skies + abode papers. 

i used the sweet summertime digital kit from (i opened a 12x18 document in photoshop elements and placed strips of the digital papers on it. then had the sheet printed off at costco.)

step three: cut your patterned paper into 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" strips. 

step four: ink your strips of paper or back them with black 1 3/4" x 8 1/2" strips of cardstock. adhere them onto your birthday reminder pages.

step five: fill in each month with all of those important birthdays. and you're all finished!!
