Trashcan Backboard

Introduction: Trashcan Backboard

The Trashcan Backboard is a revolutionary invention that will ease your disposal of waste in a fun and thrilling manner.

Step 1: Gather Materials

Materials needed for this project are very simple and easily accessible.

Items List:
1. Elmer's Foam Board 22x20
2. Any Kind of Tape
3. Snack Clips
4. Pencil
5. Box Cutter/ X-Acto Knife
6. 3 Rulers
7. Scissors

Step 2: Assembly

The first thing you are going to want to do is cut the board itself. The point of this backboard project is to make it as personalized as you want. The measurements we had were 11x10, so the board was just cut in half. The best method to cut the board is to: 1. Mark the board with a pencil, using a ruler, 2. Put the Box Cutter or X-Acto Knife between two rulers and have someone help to make sure you cut down a straight line. After the board is cut out, it would be smart to cover the edges in tape to ensure the safety of the edges.

Step 3: Design

This office supply project was designed to be very customizable, so you can design the board however you like! As shown, the board we designed, we made into a traditional backboard from a basketball hoop using our black duct tape.

Step 4: Fun!

Now you can throw away bad ideas in a jiffy, thanks to the Trashcan Backboard!
