DIY Clipboards

YOU WILL NEED:

You will need: Paper scraps or wallpaper samples, A4 clipboards, adhesive, white paint, dry cloth

1 Colour the front of a wooden clipboard with white paint and leave to dry. You may need two coats to get a solid finish.

2 Lay paper or wallpaper centrally onto the wooden clipboard. Mark and cut away a gap at the top, if necessary, to accommodate the clip mechanism.

3 Paste the back of the sample liberally with adhesive. Allow the glue to soak into the paper, then position in place. Smooth down from the centre to the outside using a clean, dry cloth.

4 Leave to completely dry overnight for 24 hours, then hang on the wall as a noticeboard or use as a clipboard.
