I am excited today to have my #1 favorite crafting buddy helping me out–my niece Mary. Mary is going into second grade this year, and, quite frankly, ready to get back to school. She loves school (remember those days?) Because she is so sweet, and because I know she is always up for a crafts, the two of us teamed up and decided to buy Duck Tape at Walmart to make a simple monogram planner.
First of all, a word about our supplies and heading back to school. My kids are still too young for school, but my sister had to get three kids ready for school this year, and that’s expensive. Where did she do all of her shopping–from clothing to school supplies? WalMart. And, along with all the essentials, WalMart also has some fun stuff to make back to school supplies special and personalized. This is where Duck Tape® comes in.
I have loved watching all the new colors and designs Duck Tape® has been coming out with, but what I was super excited to see this time around was that they now have mini rolls–which they call DUCKLINGS. The Duck Tape® Duckling mini rolls can be found in the crafts department in WalMart–and the possibilities with these babies are endless! I used 2 duckling in this project.
On to the craft!
In order to make your own monogramed planner–or anything really–you will need:;
-2 Duckling Mini Rolls of Duck Tape®
-Plain Planner Notebook
First, cover the face of the planner with a layer of one color of Duck Tape®. Leave the strips long so
that they can be wrapped around the edge of the planner.
Then, cut out a piece of wax paper roughly the same size as the planner.
Next, take the other color of Duck Tape® and cover the wax paper with strips. Make sure that there aren’t any gaps between the strips of Duck Tape®.
Then, cut our your monogram.
Finally, carefully peal the wax paper off of your monogram and stick it securely to the face of the planner.
Ta Da! We also used the contrasting Duck Tape® to cover the inside of the planner, just to give it more strength. It has to last all year, after all!
There you have it! A simple and fun project anyone can accomplish with the help of Duck Tape®!
