Dazzling duct tape bracelets

I made these cute bracelets following the step-by-step instructions from the Dazzling Duct Tape Designs book by Tamara Boykins.  This book has lots of ideas with colourful pictures for us to make cool things using duct tape and other easy to find material.  I was surprised to see the duct tape sandals, which we can wear.  The other ideas in the book include handbags, wallets, wall art, fashionable accessories, party banners and many more.
To make these simple fun bracelets we used...
Duck Tape brand printed duct tape
scissors
clipboard or paper clip optional to hold when braiding
First fold the duct tape to make a single folded duct tape strip.  For adults use a 14" long piece for each strip and for children use 12" long piece.  To make the braid we need 3 single folded strips.
If you have someone to hold then you don't need the clipboard or paper clip.  Secure the three pieces using the clipboard then tightly braid and secure the ends using a small piece of duct tape.  Measure around the hand and bring the sides together and tape it to secure the ends, make sure it is easy to remove and put.
Enjoy wearing the bracelets!
