Personalized Clipboard

Here’s another DIY project for my kitchen command centre: a personalized clipboard. I ended up making 5 of these to hang on a wall for the purpose of paper storage… coupons, bills to be paid, receipts, flyers and takeout menus. Practical and great looking!  Oh, and cheap of course!  All materials came from the dollar store!

Here’s how to make it:

Step 1: Gather your supplies

I used:

Step 2: Establish your design

Determine what you want your clipboard to look like. Play around with some designs until you find something you like. I used 3 different pieces of decorative paper for each of my clipboards: 1 for the top, 1 for the bottom, and 1 for a border separating the two.

Step 3: Glue the paper to the clipboard

I used a spray glue and wrapped the paper around the back because I was too lazy to trim it 🙂 I also taped down the edges on the back using duct tape.

Step 4: Finishing touches

To complete my personalized clipboard, I sprayed on a coat of clear gloss spray paint. I’m hoping this will lend some durability and allow it to stand up to everyday wear and tear.
