Duct Tape Pen Pouch

Duct Tape Pen Pouch

Hola! Today’s craft is a duct tape pen pouch, made out of a regular snack bag. You can also use this pouch to store other supplies, like scissors or washi tape. I’m not including a collage, because I think the craft is mostly self-explanatory; however, if you are confused about any steps, fell free to ask any questions in the comments section.

Materials:

Duct tape

Plastic snack bag

Scissors

1. Cover the bag in duct tape below the zipper.

2. Trim the edges. Don’t cut too close to the bag; it is better to have duct tape hanging evenly off the side than to cut the bag open.

Have a great day 🙂

Duct Tape Storage Container

Hi duct tape fans! Today we’re going to make a storage bin out of duct tape and an oatmeal container. You wouldn’t believe the amount of materials you can find by rummaging through a recycling bin. I enjoyed this craft because I could use all my old scraps of duct tape. It was fun experimenting with different heights for each stripe. Because the container is so deep, a  shower scrubber is hidden at the bottom to give the markers a boost (shh!). Here are the steps to create this container:

Materials:

Oatmeal container

Duct Tape

Shower Scrubber

Scissors

1. Find a clean oatmeal container or other round tub.

2. Cover with stripes of tape. It’s fun to use different sizes for each stripe.

3. Put shower scrubber at bottom of container.

Wow, only three steps! This project doesn’t take very much time to make, but be sure to layer the stripes as neatly as possible. I won’t be posting for a few weeks, but make sure to explore DTD for more crafts, and grab the new button!

Duct Tape Box

Hello! So this is my latest project…a duct tape box! While it may not seem all that impressive, this colorful box is actually very useful- a great storage space with lots of style. Imagine taking just a plain old, regular cardboard box (brown), and snazzing it up so much that you can’t tell it ever held shoes! Well here’s how to do it! You’ll need a cardboard box of any size, an index card, a marker, and two colors of duct tape.

1. First, neatly cover the outside of the box in one color of tape. I found it easier to add lots of small strips than to wrap one big piece of tape around the box.

2. Next, cover the inside of the box in another color. Remember to tape the bottom!

3. On the index card, write down whatever you’ll be keeping in the box, then tape the card to the front.

Ta-dah! Although this project may seem simple, you’re really making a common, necessary household item. It’s a whole lot prettier than plain brown cardboard, and it costs a whole lot less than a store bought container! Happy taping!
