Seriously, you are gonna wanna get some duct tape! We aren't talking about the silver duct tape that you have hanging out in the utility drawer. We're talking about the colorful, fun-printed duct tape that you can get at Beverly's in Santa Maria on Aisle 8! AND it's on sale all month long for $3.88 a roll! So, what does one do with duct tape? Well, the possibilites are ENDLESS and a pre-teen insider told me that duct tape is WAY popular among the junior high crowd! So, I'm telling you, if you want to earn coolness points with that special 'tween in your life, get yourself some cool duct tape, make a date with said 'tween and prepare for an evening of craftiness and bonding!
Just a sampling of all of the cool printed duct tape we have on Aisle 8 at Beverly's in Santa Maria! We also have a variety of solid colors!
So, apparently this is what the junior highers are doing with their duct tape. It's the "in" thing to do with strips of duct tape. I personally don't get it----but don't tell my 'tween that I said that!
I made the wallet and my 10 year old made the bow. The entire thing is made of duct tape...except for the $5 bill).
I found a bunch of different things that can be made out of duct tape. I made a checkbook without a pattern, using another checkbook as a reference. (This seriously impressed the 'tweens. Coolness points scored!) The only parts that aren't duct tape are the clear plastic used as a window for an ID and the magnets to help hold the checkbook together when it's folded.
We only made a few different things but you could also make belts, book covers, bookmarks, headbands...the possibilities are endless.
