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.
