It's that time again!!! It's time for the monthly Bright Ideas Blog Hop and I have a fun little trick for you!
I don't know about you but I just love duct tape! It's comes in about a gazillion different colors and patterns and it can be used for so many different purposes! Long ago are the days of that yucky plain gray tape!
One of the many ways that I use it in class is to prepare my interactive notebooks for my students.
Duct tape can be used on the binding to help organize the subjects by color/pattern and are perfect for creating pockets in the back of your notebooks for all those little loose ends.
But here are two little tricks that I use when cutting duct tape:
1. Save your place! I can't tell you how many times I can't find the end of the tape.
So what I do is place a paperclip to mark the start! Simple....but it works like a charm!
Don't you love it?!?
2. Use wax paper to cut your duct tape. It won't stick to your scissors or to itself and
you can actually cut it in a straight line! It's awesome and so simple!
Hopefully you will find these just as useful as I did!
