Step 1: 

The simplest way to make this easel is by using a carboard box.  Open the box at the seams.  Cut off the flaps.

Step 2: 

Leave the box folded in half.  Line the edge of the template up with the fold in the box.  Trace around the template.

Step 3: 

Cut out the cardboard.  Because your box has a natural fold your easel is complete.

Step 4: 

If you do not have a cardboard box you can make your easel from flat cardboard.  Lay the cardboard flat, open the template and lay it out on your cardboard.  Trace it with your pen.

Step 5: 

Cut out the cardboard.

Step 6: 

You will need to score the cardboard to assist with the folding.  Use your x-acto knife to lightly cut down the middle of the cardboard - do not cut all the way through.
