Back To School Notebook Makeover!

I am SO into the geometric trend and when I had the opportunity to work with Scotch® Color & Pattern Duct Tape  to design back to school items, I knew exactly how I would decorate some notebooks and clipboards…

I remember designing my notebooks when I was younger with stickers, scribbles and Laurel Loves ______ (fill in current crush).  I now only have one love (well 3- Nick, Kalia and Zoey) so one big heart it is:

Scotch® Color & Pattern Duct Tape
Self Healing Mat
Craft Knife


1) I wanted a clean slate to work with, so I first covered my black & white notebooks with Scotch’s Pearl White duct tape.
2) Grab your mat, craft knife, duct tape and ruler to begin making your triangles.
3) My ruler had a triangle on it- I used that shape to cut my triangles, however, any ruler will do.  Just line up your duct tape and cut.

4) I cut out all my triangles first and then filled the heart in like a puzzle piece:

The purple heart is made up of Violet Purple & Metallic Butterfly.   The other heart is ROY G BIV, Sunshine Yellow, and Sea Blue.

Clipboards are another office accessory addiction of mine and I had some fun changing them up from boring brown!
The materials (except use a clipboard) and directions are the same as the notebooks- Cut out your triangles on your self healing mat and apply.  

I used Violet Purple and Retro Tiles for this clipboard:

I did not use the ruler for the yellow and pink triangles as I wanted the sizes to be a little varied, so I did not need to measure each triangle.

Hot Pink and Sunshine Yellow are the colors here (and I covered a soup can in hot pink duct tape for a matching pen holder)

Thankfully if you make any mistakes, you can lift the tape up with your craft knife and remove- the tape is VERY forgiving to any errors!
Hope you enjoy, please share and pin if you do!
