They're Back....Repurposed License Plate Clipboards

The first group I did flew the coop in no time flat.  So here's my second round.  I was lucky enough to find two matching pairs from 1975 that were NEVER even used!  They are Illinois plates, which I've found have the best colors.  The clips were again heat-treated to carefully bring out the rainbow of colors.

These custom items, along with my other creations, are available in the GadgetSponge Etsy Shop and at Timeline Antiques in Shreveport, LA!

can you let us know where you purchased the clips?? I would love to do this to a few license plates that I have.

Thanks Leslie! And Deb, I believe I got them on ebay. Just the clips. I heat torched the metal to bring out the patina. Good luck!
