Duct Tape Checkbook Cover

By Noreen Doll. A duct tape checkbook cover is easy to make, especially if you use your old checkbook cover for a pattern. Most of the checkbook covers you get (for free) are made of plastic and don’t last very well. So I decided to make one for myself using duct tape, which is very […]
