I had a couple trial and error moments with this project. One included letting the glue underneath the paper dry before applying the top coat and die cuts on top. I used emery boards to "file" off the extra paper on the edges. Plus, it gives it a worn looking edge, that I prefer. I am thinking that if I can find clipboards at a cheap rate, that this could make a fun gift idea for parents for a holiday (Christmas/Mother's Day/etc.).
