Everything is figureoutable. It’s true. In life…and in crafting.

For the longest time, I’ve been trying to come up with an easy way to DIY a clipboard. All I wanted to do was cover it with patterned paper. Seems simple enough, right? Well, it turns out the very thing that make a clipboard a clipboard can be a pain in the neck when you try to work around it. You can pull out a craft knife and carefully carve your way around the clip, but that takes some skill, patience and a willingness to ruin a few sheets of paper as you try to get the perfect fit. I wanted this to be easier. Now it is. I suggest you pick up a bunch of these mini clipboards and your Canon PIXMA MG7720, because you can now cover them with ease thanks to a simple, little template. I did the work for you and now you get to sit back and print it out. That’s it.
