Mija has discovered a new craft. Duck Tape.
Let me clarify first. Duct tape is silver and practical. Duck tape is made by Duck brand and comes in a variety of colors and patterns like these:
It's not your father's duct tape!!
This new interest started at Father's Day when we went to Michael's. She was able to make a Duck Tape wallet! HERE are the directions we used. Here's what her finished gift looked like.
Now, the fancy Duck tape is not cheap at least for a family with an unemployed father!! It costs about $5 a roll, but you do get more than one project per roll. Well, I found directions for an extremely easy pencil case. Then I found some Duck tape at Family Dollar for less than $4 a roll. Not a big selection, but at least some choices other than silver!
Of course, mija chose pink.
Here's what you need for this project:
Next, you start putting the tape on the bag. I recommend starting at the zipper and putting it right up to the zipper. Any extra length can be wrapped around the edge, but make sure it's not too much.
That has been our Duck tape expedition, so far. Have any of you made projects with Duck tape, yet?
