Duck Tape Mania

So.. I've caught the "Duck Tape bug" - I know I'm a little behind :)
You start with a trip to your favorite superstore to purchase just a "few" rolls of  duck tape.  A few of these rolls are for the Duck Tape pens my niece and I are going to make when she visits. (Yea for Pinterest projects!)

See..just a few - lol  Even Texas A&M  Duck Tape!!!

I found this cute "EZ start" type and decided to try it too.
1st project - time for a Clipboard Make-over

Before:  Boring and Marked-up
After:  FUN!! =)
Next, add a matching fluency phone (My sweet husband is making me a class set for my new 2nd grade classroom.)
How fun is this??!! =D

Thanks to Pinterest inspiration from: Classroom DIY 

So, grab some duck tape, get inspired, and have a FUN-FILLED Week!!

  9. I love your clipboards! My clipboards for my kids are all different colors and they always fight over them. I would love to duck tape them so they all look the same... I pinned this idea, hope you don't mind! Thanks for the idea :)

  10. OOh so cool! I will have to give this a try. Loving those clipboards!

  11. Thanks everyone! They are so fun to make, probably because I like color so much =)

  15. We are going to have to do a clipboard makeover too! For some reason kiddos always feel the need to write their names on the clipboards we have! (Only in the mind of a second grader would you write your OWN name on something that wasn't yours!!) This will be a great way to make them look better then new!
    We are following you now and we would love it if you want to stop by sometime!
