The Cardboarduino is intended to be printed, cut out, and glued to the front and back of a piece of 5″ x 6″ piece of posterboard.

The builder pokes holes through the posterboard everywhere there is a dot on the top side of the design. It also labels the locations of all of the components, including color bands for the resistors.
