DIY: Dorm Hacks #2


Story by Claire Sullivan, Writer

Personalized Clipboard

The clipboards can be used for homework, hang up documents or to hang photos.

Needed Supplies:

  • Clipboard
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  1. Glue down piece of paper of your choice. Scrapbook paper was used in this project.
  2. Trace around the clipboard on the backside of the glued on paper.
  3. Cut on the line that was traced in step two. This is to remove the excess paper.


Picture String Line

The picture string line can be either horizontal or vertical. It made more sense for mine to be horizontal since that was how my artwork that I used are.

Needed Supplies:

  • String
  • Scissors
  • Pictures
  • Tape


  1. Cut string to your desired.
  2. Use your scissors to make a hole in your pictures or artwork.
  3. Put the string through the bottom hole.
  4. Tie the string in the bottom of your photo or artwork.
  5. Make a hole in the top of your picture

Pencil Container Uses

The container is actually a pencil holder but I use the container to hold my make up brushes. The container can be used to hold writing utensils or for anything else that you can to use the container for. The containers can be picked up anywhere. This one was bought from a discount store.
