Altered Clipboard

Today's project was a fun project.  I participated in a swap where we needed to take a clipboard and alter it.  My friend, Cheryl, is the name that I got.  She loves anything vintage, shabby chic and the like.  Here is what I made:
I bought a wooden clipboard at Staples as the base.  I then took one inch stripes of two types of paper and glued them to the front clipboard, staggering them.  I then wrapped the strip of papers to the back and covered the whole back of the clipboard with another piece of paper.  I learned this technique at a Scrapbook Expo, many years ago and loves it.  
I finished the clipboard by adding lots of flowers, a doily and butterflies.  The little pearl heart embellishments that I added to the corner, I don't even know where they came from, but I thought that they were perfect for this project.
Here is a close up of the bottom left hand corner.  Enjoy!
