Making creative things using duct tape is a fun hobby for all ages. My daughter likes using duct tape to do activities and she made this hair tie and gave it as a gift for my birthday.Duct tape has been around since the 1940s and was originally used as an adhesive for ammunition cases during World War II because of it water resistant qualities. The military used it for quick fixes on jeeps etc. Eventually duct tape became available in hardware stores where plumbers and builders gave its current name "Duct tape".
Now craft stores have a variety of colourful duct tape.I made this decorative bow following the instructions from Tape it & Make it book by Richela Fabian Morgan. This bow would be wonderful handmade touch to put on gifts or to decorate the home/class etc.
This book has over 100 creative project ideas...
- First clean a formica or melamine table top with a damp cloth to remove dust before starting to work.
- Clean the craft knife or scissors right after the project is finished, use a little bit of mineral oil or petroleum jelly to clean easily.
- Keep the tapes dust-free in a transparent bin so you can see the different coloured tape without opening/closing the box.
