Tired of the same, old, and boring normal notebooks?? Well I'm here to teach you how to personalize your notebooks with some flair so they fit your personality!
LETS GO!!! ->
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
The materials you'll need are...
1. 2-3 rolls of duct tape (preferably one solid color and one patterned color, I think it stands out more but feel free to do what ever you want remember it's your notebooks)
2. A roll of clear tape
3. An Ex-atco knife
4. A notebook
5. A cutting mat
Step 2: Covering the Notebook
So first your gonna want to pick out a base tape to cover the front of the note book all the way up to the spiral
Step 3: Excess Tape
When you finished covering the front of your notebook in your choice of tape your going to want to cut off all of the excess tape
Step 4: Spicing Things Up a Bit
Now that you have the base cover for the notebook you might think "well it's kinda plain."
Sooo to give it some POP you can design it with some strips of another kind of tape!!!
MAKE SURE THAT YOU LIKE A DESIGN BEFORE YOU LAY THE TAPE DOWN FOR GOOD!!!!!!
When you have your desired design set on your notebook cut off all excess tape like before
Step 5: Finishing It Off With Clear Tape
Now to make the tape stay longer lay strips of clear tape across the cover
This makes it last longer
Keeps the notebook clean
And makes the book look nicer
Step 6: Opening Up the Holes
Now the last thing you need to do to finish your book is to cut the holes to you can slip it in your binder
There are a couple different ways to do this as shown in the pictures above
Way #1 slit the inside of the hole in an X like way and fold over the little triangles
Way #2 cut the whole circle and poke it out
Either way it looks great!!
Step 7: DONEE!!!
And there you have it your very one personalized duct tape notebook!!!!
I really hope you guys like my D.I.Y and I plan on making more soon
Bye guys Stay Fabulous!
