My youngest daughter, who has always been a trendsetter, duct taped her whole back pack, it look great.
It was amazing how many kids started doing stuff like that to their school supplies.
I loved it and her back pack was indestructible and almost waterproof, saved me money too!

There are even How to books totally devoted to duct tape.
