How to make a SWAP

  2. Cut in half.  Color with markers.
  3. Add silver to the toothpick and black for the tip.
  4. Print and cut out printable.  Adhere to cardboard evenly spaced apart.  Cut our leaving a “mat” this will look like the clipboard.
  5. Punch metal tape on the edge.
  6. This is so you have half circles and will act as the clip.
  7. Center toothpick on the metal tape.
  8. Adhere to the clipboard with the circle part on the back.
