DIY Clipboards Using Design Samples

As a designer, there are often unused samples floating around the office.  They are beautiful or useful and I find myself 20 times a day saying, I need to think of something to make with this!

 Well, Kim from 733 blog came up with the best DIY project using larger laminate counter top samples.

Mini clip boards.  These would be great for teacher gifts, as shown, but also as a small to-do list that is easy to carry around in your purse.  This project has me smacking my head saying “Why didn’t I think of that?”.
