Post-It Clipboards

I have Literacy Night coming up this Tuesday, October 1, 2013. I wanted to give a little extra thank you to those that are giving their time to support the event.

So I made 60 of these...

I found the directions to make these little clipboards on the interent somewhere but don't know exactly where. So you will have to settle for my little how to.

These are the materials I needed

I got the binder clips and note pads at the Dollar Tree for $1.00 each, permanent tape runner for $1.99 at JoAnn's, the 8 pack coasters at Target for $1.00 and scrapbook paper.

First, I cut 4"x4" squares from the paper and 1/2" x 1 1/4" strips.

I attached the paper square to the coaster with the tape runner

and cut off the corners.

Then I sanded the edges of the paper around the coaster.

After that, I attached the small strip of paper to the binder clip

and the clip to the coaster.

Finally, I added the note pad and...

SUPER easy and cute, if I say so myself!

Have a GREAT week!

  6. Love this idea for a favor at a banquet! Thinking of making 200! Eek! It looks to me from the picture that you used the small binder clips. Is that correct? I'm looking at buying them in bulk online and am having a hard time guessing sizes simply by looking at photos. I was wondering if small binder clips were big enough to hold everything together or if I needed to buy medium? Thanks!

  7. what type of coasters did you use? will cork work?

    1. I was wondering if maybe even cardboard would work.... I don't imagine it would have to be ultra sturdy. Or, for that matter, even a piece of plastic, as in a plastic storage bin or lid. Hmmm, I may have to do some experimenting!

  8. Great idea !! but would like to see the back of the finished coaster.

  9. I wonder if this would work with individual square tiles from Lowe's or Home Depot.

  10. Did you cover the back of the coaster with the paper or tape? thanks!


THANKS for taking the time to comment!
