How to cover a clipboard with wallpaper

Clipboards are useful, but that doesn't mean they have to be ugly. Most of the clipboards sold in the store are pretty plain and boring, but luckily it's easy to give a cheap clipboard a pretty makeover with little more than some scraps of wallpaper.
This is such an easy project, and it'll turn out great no matter what colors and patterns of wallpaper you choose. Check out the video tutorial and the instructions below if you'd like to make one for yourself. If you don't have need for an actual clipboard, use it to display a few photos or concert tickets.

- Clipboard
- Self-sticking wallpaper
- Scissors
- Pencil
- T-square ruler
- Precision knife
- Painter's tape
- Acrylic paint

Instructions
1. Cut a piece of wallpaper big enough to cover the clipboard.
2. Trim down the wallpaper so it fits the clipboard perfectly. Use a T-square ruler to measure the clip. Trace the outline of the clip onto the wallpaper and cut it out.
3. Peel off the wallpaper backing and stick it to the clipboard. Smooth it down to ensure there are no wrinkles or air bubbles.
4. Trim off any excess bits of wallpaper with a precision knife.
5. Place a piece of painter's tape across one of the bottom corners of the clipboard and cover this section in acrylic paint. Let the paint dry.
6. Peel off the painter's tape.
