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!
