Several months ago, I found these fun little clipboards in the clearance section at Archiver’s. I have plans to embellish them with a little scrapbook paper and mod podge, which I’ll post pictures of later. I’ve just been needing some sort of notepad to go with them. I saw these cute DIY notepads on Ashley Ann, and knew that a graph paper design was definitely the way to go – built-in “check boxes” and lines to help keep my list-making nice and neat.
You’ve got it… another free printable!
I wanted to keep this to-do/shopping/whatever list no frills and simple. Cutesy is nice and all, but I find it to be a little distracting sometimes, plus I plan on using this list on an embellished clipboard in the near future.
Once again, this printable is available in a variety of colors… these will print 2 to a page, and the finished size is 4” x 10.5”. I’ve included black, gray, and white (not pictured) versions if you don’t want to print in color. Print up a whole bunch of these and make them into a notepad (see tutorial here) for yourself or as gifts.
To download the file(s) of your choice, click on the collage image above and you’ll be directed to their 4shared locations. (I’ve also included a compressed file which includes all of the color choices.)
My printing secret – I selected “Page Scaling: NONE” in my print settings before printing. Then, I trimmed the paper by 1/4” on all sides, and cut in half – they worked out perfectly!
Hope this helps keep your life just a little more organized!
