October Paper Pumpkin Kit - Message Station

I put together my October Paper Pumpkin kit the other day and had to figure out where I would hang it/keep it so that it would be used. After some consideration, I decided to mount it to a clipboard as that would give it a bit more of a base, and it would also have a nice and easy method for hanging it on the wall.

But first I wanted to decorate the clipboard! I used a Gumball Green sheet of DSP from the Be of Good Cheer paper pack - the perfect colour (and not Christmassy at all!). I also used the Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon as well as Gumball Green stitched ribbon to decorate the clipboard.

I adhered the 'Notes' board from the Paper Pumpkin kit to the clipboard using Dimensionals, since it was hard to get it flat with the silicone band at the bottom. To make the clipboard more versatile, I also attached a mini magnetic board and a cork board! No reason why any notes can't be all consolidated to be on this one 'message station'!

And then to decorate a bit more, I made a mini magnet and pin with the other stamps in the set, as well as adding a pen (attached to the board with the second Calypso Coral Bakers' Twine). If you've got a good eye, you may notice that I also customized the pen with the DSP as well, just to complete the coordination!  Final product:
