Duct Tape Composition Notebook

 Hi! Today I'm going to show you how to make a duct tape composition notebook.
 Here's what you need: One composition notebook, three rolls of tape (two for the cover and one for the side), and scissors.
 First take a piece of one of the tapes for the cover and get a piece about the length of the cover. It's better if it's longer.
 Now line it up as much as possible with the bottom. Then stick.
 Then put it around the corner like this.
 Now fold the rest over.
 Do put the other tape for the cover overlapping the other one a little bit.
 Fold over the edge.
 Continue doing that until you get to the top.
 Now take the second kind of tape and cut it in half.
 Put one of the halves on the top and do what you did at the bottom for folding around the edge.
 Begin again on the back.
 Put the next kind on once again.
 So here the piece didn't go long enough. Just take a piece that can make it long...
 Then attach it to the end. Fold around the edge again.
 Now finish it off with the other half of the piece of tape.
 At this point you will take the tape for the side and get a piece the length of the side.
 Wrap it around the side.
The rest is optional, but it does look a little more official if you do it (not that it looks official....).
 Take a piece of card stock however big you want the tag to be. Tape down the sides with one fourth of a piece the same length as the sides.
 Then do the same with the top and bottom.
 Now put whatever you want on the tag.
 Ta-da! You're finished! You can use these for school, as a journal, or just for random notes. They also make perfect gifts. In fact, I gave away the one made in this tutorial! So have fun being creative!
