It takes less than 30 minutes to make and you can personalize it to fit your style. This is a super easy Cricut project, I hope you enjoy it!
Here’s How To Make It:
Head over to this link and you’ll see this exact project in Cricut Design Space. You will be taken to your canvas where you can start making this project right now! Continue reading to know exactly how to bring it together.
1. Once you measure your notepad and decide how big you want your clipboards, be sure to size your vinyl
as well as your chipboard
in Design Space. We made ours 5 inches by 6.5 inches. Follow the instructions in Design Space as you print your designs on the Cricut Printable Vinyl
. Then place one on your LightGrip mat
and cut it out with your Cricut
. Repeat with the second one.
2. While the Cricut
is cutting your printed designs, prep your chipboard
. Place it on your StrongGrip mat
in the top left corner. Add some masking tape around all of the edges for extra support.
3. When your printable vinyl
has been cut, be sure to move all of your star wheels to the far left of your roller bar. This creates enough room for the thick wood to be cut properly. Once you’ve loaded the mat just press the flashing Cricut button and watch the magic happen!
4. This cut only took ten minutes. Peel your chipboard
pieces off of the mat, and remove the access chipboard
and tape from your mat as well. Take care of your mats!
5. This step is optional, but I loved the idea of adding a little gold accent to the edges of these clipboards. This also matches our gold binder clips perfectly!
6. Once the paint has dried peel up your printable vinyl
and carefully apply it to your chipboard
. I’ve found its easier when you fold the vinyl up like a taco, line up the top and bottom, and work from the middle out. Repeat the process with the second one.
7. Now all you need to do is clip on your notepad and get creative! Use this as a daily to-do list, weekly reminders, grocery list, whatever you’d like!
