easily make a plain clipboard fun and trendy just in time for the start of the new school year.
Of course, the main thing you need to get started is a clipboard.
I bought a small clipboard from the dollar store.
You will also need a ruler, Sharpies and some type of pattern to follow, unless you want to make up your own design. I wanted an Aztec pattern on my clipboard, so I simply did a Google image search. I found a pattern that I liked, and I loosely based my design off of it. I used a ruler to help me make lines with different color Sharpies, and I filled those lines in with circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles.
When I finished with the Sharpies, I liked the design, but it was a bit dull. I got out my Elmer's metallic paint pens, and I doodled some more with those until I loved the finished design.
I messed up my design a bit a couple of times, but when I did, I just fixed the mistake with a darker Sharpie and/or changed up the pattern a little.
It really wasn't hard at all. Actually, the doodling was a bit therapeutic. So whether you need a new clipboard or a bit of therapy, this little project is for you!
