3 in 1 Notes Manager




Introduction: 3 in 1 Notes Manager

Are you having trouble coping up with your work at school? Then you ought to have your homemade 3 in 1 clipboard - whiteboard - soft board. It is fun and easy to make, use and carry.

Approximate Making Time: 30mins

Step 1: Gathering Material

Materials required for the Notes Manager are:

  • 3 to 4 A4 size cardboard sheets (approx. 21cm x 29.7cm)
  • Stapler
  • Colourful Tape
  • Transparent Tape
  • Transparent Cellophane Sheet (approx. 14.8cm x 21cm)
  • Thick rough cloth(approx. 10.5cm x 29.7cm)
  • Scale/ Ruler
  • Pencil, Eraser
  • 2 Magnets/ A Magnet and an Iron Piece(I used a magnetic cupboard hinge)
  • Colourful Paper (including white)
  • A Glue Gun/ Strong Adhesive
  • Glue Stick/Craft Glue (not-so-strong glue)
  • Sticky Notes
  • Whiteboard Markers
  • Board Pins
  • Scissors

Step 2: Making the Base

Now that we have collected our material, it's time we start making our base.

    1. Start sticking your cardboard sheets together with a glue gun or with a strong adhesive.
    2. Once your base is strong, stick the iron strip or magnet on the place you want to clip your sheets. (I prefer it to be on the top-centre position)
    3. Now secure the magnetic piece with 2-3 layers of clear tape.
    4. Cover both sides with colourful paper.

    Step 3: The Mini Softboard

    Now that the base is ready, we will start making the soft board.

    1. Place your magnet over the magnetic strip and measure approximately 1cm to the right.
    2. Now cut your thick rough piece of cloth to size, (Lenght (29.7cm) and the width of the cardboard from the marked point till its extreme right corner).
    3. After the cloth is cut to size, stick it to the cardboard with a glue stick/craft glue.

    Step 4: The Mini WhiteBoard

    To make the whiteboard:

    1. Start by measuring the width of the whiteboard, from the end of the soft board till the extreme left of the clipboard.
    2. Now cut the cellophane sheet and the plain white paper to the measured size. (Lenght (10cm) and the measured width)
    3. Now stick the paper (with a glue stick) on the lower left corner of the base.
    4. Once the paper is stuck properly, place the cellophane sheet on top and staple all 4 edges to secure it

    Step 5: Presentation

    The 3 in 1 Clipboard is now ready, except its Presentation.

    1. Start off by taping all the edges of the soft board and whiteboard like a frame with colourful tape.
    2. Now take a small bunch of sticky notes and pin them to the soft board for later use.
    3. Also, tape the edges of the clipboard for a better look.
    4. And do not forget to tape your magnet with sparkling tape.

    TIP - You can always stick this to your school file for the perfect experience.
