DIY Covered Clipboard


Things you’ll need:
Clipboard
Lightweight scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Foam brush
Craft knife
Scissors
Pencil

Things to do:
1. Hold the paper upside down at the clip end of the board and trace the shape of the part of the clip attached to the board. This is the area you will cut away so that the paper will fit up against the top edge of the clipboard.

2. Trim this section out of the paper.

3. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge, slightly thinned with water, to the area around the clip, pulling the clip up and painting underneath it as well. Insert the paper and smooth down.

4. Pull up the remaining part of the paper gently and apply a coat of Mod Podge to the rest of the board. Smooth the paper down. Add a second piece of paper to cover the lower half of the board, adding extra Mod Podge at the edge as necessary.

5. Allow the top of the clipboard to dry, working out any bubbles that form.
6. Flip the board over and cover the back of the board in the same manner. Allow it to dry.
7. Once dry, trim away the excess with the craft knife.
8. Paint one or two coats of Mod Podge onto the front and back of the board, allowing each to dry before starting the next, to seal and protect the surface.
