Washi Tape Checkerboard Clipboards

Hello, A Pumpkin & a Princess readers! I’m Ginger & I blog over at Ginger Snap Crafts. I’m so excited to be hanging out over here at Crystal’s while she’s away! I “met” Crystal when I first started blogging & I LOVE her!!  She’s awesome & sooooo talented. Doesn’t she have the best crafts & recipes???  I’ve really enjoyed her washi tape crafts. She actually inspired me to pick up some washi tape for myself! :) Today I’d love to share my {washi tape} checkerboard clipboards!

For this project you’ll need clipboards, washi tape {I found mine at Target}, an X-ACTO knife & scissors.


I started off at the bottom of my clipboard & placed my horizontal washi tape strips on first.  I went all the way to the top of the clipboard.  So your clipboard will all be the same color.  Then I started on my vertical strips with a different color of washi tape.  I used my X-ACTO knife cut small lines in the tape using the tape underneath as a guide.

Then you remove the squares that you don’t need.  Then you just keep on going until your whole clipboard looks like a checkerboard!

Wouldn’t these make awesome teacher gifts? You could make them using your school colors!


Crystal, thank you so much for having me over! I’d love for YOU stop by Ginger Snap Crafts sometime. It’s a place where I share my cute & easy crafts like these:


I also have a fun link party on Wednesdays! I would LOVE to see what your up to! :)

    I keep seeing washi tape crafts and it is killing me that I don’t have any washi tape, I think I see a visit to Target in my near future!

    Absolutely love the clipboards. I intend to make at least one for each family member and friends. I do have one question; is the surface of the clipboard smooth enough to use only one or two pieces of paper to write on or do you need to use a pad ? Thank you.
