Introduction: Clipboard Quick N' Easy

Picture of Clipboard Quick N' Easy

A few minutes ago I decided I should draw a quick schematic of my latest circuit design. I thought, "Gee, I wish I had a clipboard to put a sheet of typing paper on so I could draw this with some degree of stability." And then I thought, clip.. board... and ta da, this project popped into my head. I think I can keep directions to a minimum. In fact the intro photo may be all you need.

Step 1: What You Will Need:

If you have a clip, paperclips, cardboard box, razor knife, ruler and Sharpie and some type of tape you will be ready to make a CLASS A clipboard.

Step 2: Measure, Mark, Cut

I wanted my clipboard to be slightly larger than a sheet of typing paper. So I marked my cutting lines and (cutting away from me to avoid excessive blood loss) I cut a rectangle of cardboard.

Step 3: Safety Wrapping

No one I know enjoys paper cuts, so wrap the edges of the cardboard with some kind of tape.

Step 4: Add Clip, Paper, DONE

Now that it is safe, clip your paper to the board and you're done. And you probably just saved anywhere from $1 or more by making this yourself. Also additional clips, artwork, or anything can now be added to make this clipboard uniquely yours. Thanks for reading this Ible.

necessity: mother of invention, again.
