Measure and cut your cardboard to make two 8 inch strips and two 5 inch strips.
Measure 1 inch from each side of all the strips and poke a hole at that point with an unbent paperclip. Also poke a hole at the center point (4 inches in) on the two 8 inch strips.
Join the two 8 inch strips to form a right angle. Run a paperclip through the hole to secure it in place. Add one of the 5 inch strips to the center of each 8 inch strip and secure them with paperclips too.
Expand the hole in the end of one of the 8 inch strips large enough to hold a mechanical pencil, then tape it into place. Place another pencil through the overlapping holes of the two 5 inch strips.
Add a final paper clip to the other end of the 8 inch strip and tape it to the table. Now you can hold the center pencil and, as you trace it over a picture, the other pencil will draw the image!
