How to get creative with clipboards

Create with paint! Projects from Habitat by Resene

Who says clipboards have to be boring? Give yours a makeover with stylish wallpaper from the Resene Wallpaper Collection.

Check out the huge range of wallpaper available in the wallpaper library at your local Resene ColorShop. You can order a cut length of most designs. Or use any leftover wallpaper at home.

Give your clipboards a makeover with wallpaper
Creative clipboards

You will need

  • Wallpaper your choice of designs; Nikki used designs 34134-4 and 34137-8 from the Resene Wallpaper Collection
  • Ruler, pencil, scalpel and cutting mat
  • Clipboards


  1. Measure the wallpaper against the clipboards. Cut the wallpaper slightly smaller than the clipboards so that there’s a brown edge. Cut a gap in the top to allow for the metal clip.
  2. Super glue the pieces to the clipboard and leave to dry.
  3. Repeat with the other clipboards until you have a collection of cool clipboards.

Top tip:  If you’d prefer not to see the clipboard colour at all, paint the edges with a Resene testpot colour to complement your wallpaper and allow to dry before gluing on the wallpaper.
