2. Cut out around the metal, so your paper lays flat (it doesn't have to be perfect)
3. Mod podge your paper on to the clipboard
4. Distress if you like
5. While waiting for the glue and distress ink to dry, cut your ribbons. I cut fourteen 6 inch pieces. You can do more or less to your liking, but I just wanted to cover the whole top part.
6. Tie them around in double knots...pull them tight so they don't come undone.
7. Put a layer of mod podge over the top
Let dry, and your done!
