Restyled Clipboard

Sharing is caring!

Clipboard and pen decorated

Today I want to share with you a fun and easy back to school project. I am just loving all the cute desk items, but I want to show you how I decorated some office products for only a fraction of what these would cost in an office supply store. Going back to school is more fun with decorative school supplies, don’t you agree?

First I found this really nice, but plain, clipboard in the dollar section of my local discount store. This is great for note taking or writing.

I picked up some decorative contact paper and measured to cover the front of the clipboard.

I was careful to fold down the corners and seal on the other side.

To cover up the top seam, I used some decorative washi tape.

Then I took a sliver of the paper and covered up a pen.

Viola! A simple set that was made for less than $2.

This restyled clipboard not only makes a nice gift for a student, it is also a nice gift for a teacher or scout leader. You can also use scrapbook paper and clear contact paper. This would allow the use of original artwork for one of a kind set.

What a great idea. Our school has all these ugly clipboards we use for silent auctions and this would for sure dress them up for auction events
