Gather the materials for your Makedo Art Easel. You will need some flat cardboard, a pizza box and Makedo Parts.

To begin, create a fold on the lid at around 1/4 of the way from the hinge of the box.

Step 2: Fold and connect

On the top flap of the pizza box place a piece of cardboard to create an angle.

Once you have the desired angle, connect it in place using Makedo Lock-hinges and Makedo Re-clips.

Step 3: Lock in place

To prevent the box lid from moving, punch a hole in the side of the box where the lid sits flat as shown in the image.

Secure it in place using a Makedo Re-clip.

Step 4: Attach

Cool, would like to see it sometime! Thanks for the comment.
Great idea. Good for make-shift open air painting and a great project for a classroom.
Brilliant!
This is beyond awesome! Makes me wish I had a pizza box, and Makedo parts. I bet the same could be done with simple binder clips for those of us who don't own Makedo. I'll try it the next time we order out.
