It’s not Thanksgiving yet, but the Christmas season is short this year so it’s certainly not too late to start planning! I’m big on planning and to do list and calendars, so I’ve had a lot of fun putting together this Free Printable Christmas Planner for myself to use and for you to print out and use as well! And…I made a fun little clipboard using Sparkle Mod Podge to put the planner on. It’s festive and will make the planning all that much more fun. (Seriously. I’ve got a major thing for this sort of thing. Tell me I’m not alone!)
Here’s the clipboard:
And here’s the planner:
Sooooo, let’s talk about all of this. First, the planner.

Now let’s look at the fun clipboard.
Holiday Clipboard Tutorial:
- Paint (optional)
- Mod Podge (I used Sparkle)
- Festive paper/cardstock
- Foil Sticker Paper
I started out with a plain clipboard and painted it white. You don’t have to paint it if you don’t want to. This step is optional:
That took several coats of paint.
Now, cut a piece of scrapbook paper or card stock to the size you need for your clipboard. (Use a paper cutter to do this if possible.)
Then, I grabbed my Mod Podge. (Did you know that Mod Podge comes in Sparkle? Built in glitter=perfect for the holidays:
Spread a layer of the Mod Podge on your clipboard and then a thin layer on the back of your paper:
Begin to lay your paper on the clipboard starting on one side and working your way over. Smooth carefully to remove bubbles as you go.
Allow this to dry for about 30 minutes. Then, spread a thin layer of this fun Sparkle Mod Podge all over the top. This will both seal the project and add sparkle!
Then, I cut out a snowflake from silver foil sticker paper. You could also just use plain paper if needed. Use a cutting machine if you have one. Mine was a sticker so I just stuck it on, but if yours isn’t, use the Mod Podge again to stock it in place.
Now, print out your planner and clip it in your clipboard and get planning!
