Coupon & Grocery List Clipboard!

coupon clipboard organizer front and back
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this months ago.  I have tried so many coupon organizers and I just haven’t found one that works for me.  I love this one!!  It was super simple to make.  I sewed a pocket organizer for the back to hold coupons and I can still clip my grocery list or any other papers or lists on the front.  I don’t have an actual tutorial with pictures but I can give you the steps and I bet you can create your own.
  1. Cut 2 pieces of fabric about the size of your clipboard
  2. Place right sides together and sew around edges, leaving a small opening for turning.
  3. Turn inside out, sew opening closed, top stitch around all 4 edges.
  4. Cut 4 strips of clear plastic (the kind used for table cloth coverings).  I made mine approximately 8 1/4” x 2 1/4”
  5. Sew them onto the fabric rectangle you just created.  To help your foot glide along the plastic cover it with a piece of scotch tape (otherwise you’ll need a teflon foot)
  6. I ran a stitch down the first three strips to divide them into 6 smaller pockets.  I left the last one the full length since I sometimes have larger coupons like Bed, Bath & Beyond
  7. Insert grommets into the 4 corners
  8. Spray front and back of your clipboard (I made mine black since my fabric was pink and black ~ I covered the clip with painters tape so it remained silver)
  9. Spay a clear coat on front and back of your clipboard.
  10. Place your fabric organizer on the back and mark the 4 holes, then drill them out.
  11. Tie the fabric organizer onto the back using ribbon

Let me know if any steps are confusing and I’ll do my best to add more details.
