Clipboard Pen Organizer May Arts

I have a fun little tutorial up on the May Arts blog last week.  How fun is this?
Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to show you a quick and easy way to organize your pens.  I use a clipboard at work every day and I am always either losing my pens or my papers are flying around all over the place.  So I made these easy elastic and ribbon pen organizers that not only hold my pens but also hold my papers in place.
Clipboard Pen Organizer
My clipboard is the standard that holds 8.5”x11” papers.  I cut 18” of elastic and sewed the ends together.  I then took a 14” piece of ribbon folded in half with the ends in the center back.  I put a decorative lace over the top and then sewed this down to my elastic.  I then sewed the ribbon down in about 1” increments this is the loops that will hold my pens.  Voila you are done.  How cute are my clipboards now?  And I will always have a pen handy.
