Teacher Appreciate: Duct Tape Notebook

I love school supplies.  I love to bling it out, and I had a lot of fun making cute notepads out of fun food boxes, thanks to Erin's great tip, the link to that project, and inspiration are here.  ...fast forward a few months, and I saw this idea of duct tape spirals here.  This literally took about one minute, and that's because I decided to match up the pattern on my duct tape.  All it took was this notepad, and this super cute duct tape, a gift from Sarah.  I had to show her my appreciation, right?
 Cut, tape, cut, tape.  It would be super simple to add a die cut letter on the front, or make the cover fun in a plethora of ways. 
Plethora, my favorite word...use it in a plethora of ways, and you'll feel better about your life...or at least your vocabulary.  I added a flower and a button b/c that' the kind of girl I am.  Duct tape and flowers, every man's dream. 
Duct tape-a completely under explored crafting avenue for me, but I have a whole roll...watch out world!
