Okay, I admit it. I’m a geek who LOVES school supplies. Yup, I love this time of year. There’s nothing like openeing a new box of crayons and seeing all those pointy tips and beautiful colors!
Where do you go to purchase back to school items? Well Wal-Mart has some amazing deals on school supplies. All those things like notebooks, pencils, pens, folders…you name it. But that’s not all! Nope. You can buy Duck Tape at Walmart so that you can personalize all your new goodies. Look what I just picked up.
The composition notebook was just $0.50 and check out the Duck Tape! They even carry the skinny type which is great for applying borders and other embellishments. I thought purple would be a great accent border color but when you buy Duck Tape at Walmart, you’ll find that this skinny variety comes all sorts of fun colors and patterns…even glow in the dark!
Let’s turn this composition notebook from drab to fab, shall we? I first placed a strip of blue tape along each edge of the front cover. Then I applied a strip of my pattern tape in the center.
Take your scissors and trim off all of the excess. Now we are going to create a border along the patterned tape with our skinny purple tape.
Here’s the finished product! I LOVE it. Not only is colorful and fun, it’s personlized AND the Duck Tape helps to strengthen the cover.
So when you’re purchasing those school supplies this year, don’t forget to buy Duck Tape at Walmart!
