Duck-orate Your Binder!

Stuck with a boring 3-ring binder?

Duck TapeĀ® to the rescue!


Here’s a quick tutorial that’ll help you snaz up (did I just say SNAZ UP? Oy.) your bland binder. All you need is a binder, some rad Duck TapeĀ® (buy Duck Tape at Walmart), and a craft knife.


1. Measure the binder. Mine is about 10″ wide and 11″ tall.


2. Find a flat smooth surface to lay out your design on. I’m using my cutting mat because the tape easily peels off, and the craft knife won’t hurt the surface.


3. I’m going for a zebra pattern, so I’ve laid out some alternating strips with angled ends.


4. Use the craft knife to shape your pieces of tape.


5. I’m saving all the bits I peel off to further fill in the design.


6. After filling in the design with the scraps, I think I’ve got it to my liking.


7. Peel the strips off and start applying to the binder. You can use a chopstick to smooth the tape out and make sure the edges lay flat.


8. Done! You can also do the back and insides, if you want.


Get creative with your shapes- polka dots, stripes, chevron, stars, hearts… Go crazy!

    Wow, options you give here are awesome. I have never tried to decorate my boring binders. Your colorful example is so inspiring. I have something to ask. How long do these patterns stick to it? Where else can I get such a cool rainbow-patterned sticky tape?

      Duck tape is pretty durable- I would think it would last quite a while if you were nice to it. If you’re a kid throwing it in your book bag every day, it might not last as long. :)
