And… Action! Blue’s Movie Clapboard

DIY crafting. That’s a wrap.

Ready for the movies? Make a cute DIY movie clapboard and get ready for action. (Grown-ups will need to help for this one, as some good, straight cutting is necessary.)

 

What You’ll Need

  • heavy card stock (blue, white, gray)
  • cardboard
  • pencils
  • glue
  • scissors
  • marker

 

How to Create

Step 1: Cut a straight line almost to the edge about an inch from the top of the cardboard.

Step 2: Glue the lighter blue construction paper down under the line you cut.

Step 3: Cut a rectangle the same width of your cardboard piece and about two inches tall.

Step 4: Glue down strips of the white construction paper equal distance apart and trim any extra off.

Step 5: Glue down to the top of your clapperboard

Step 6: Cut the striped paper along the cut of the cardboard

Step 7: Draw lines with your marker and add a place for the movie title and director name and GET DIRECTING!
