Who don’t know what Duck Tape® is? I’m betting that everyone in the world knows what Duck Tape® is. Unless you have been living under a rock on the outskirts of Timbuktu, and in that case you’re probably not reading this post. With all of its many uses Duck Tape® is one of my favorite multi use tools, it can be used to hold things in place, use it to hold things together or you can use it to fabricate a whole new part.
You know what I’m talking about, I know I’m not the only one who has used it to hold the mirror in place on my truck or keep a window up, Duck Tape even kept me from getting a no headlight ticket once. Since we are on the subject, did you know that in NASCAR they call it “200 mile an hour tape” because of its ability to hold a car body together at 200 mph. That’s strong!
The new craze with Duck Tape® is construction… Yes, things made from Duck Tape®! A kid in our home town made a replica of the Sears tower out of Duck Tape®, very accurate too. People make things from clothes to wallets, jewelry, purses, you name it. I have even seen a bridge built entirely of Duck Tape® 100 feet long and it held a grown man of average size with no problem, Duck Tape® is the best thing ever!
I bet you didn’t know that it will also come in pretty handy for the fast approaching back to school season. You can use it for things like homemade book covers, which by the way if made from Duck Tape are very durable, or you can make a couple folders out of Duck Tape®. Shoot, you could make one for each class just from one roll, see cost effective too! You can even make something original for a new teacher instead of the tired old apple gift, you can use it to patch up your favorite old backpack or you can use it to make a new favorite backpack.
There’s literally millions of every day uses for Duck Tape®, and thankfully it’s in abundant supply and easy to find at your local Walmart, just check the paint department or the craft department and you will find the Duck Tape® to fit your needs. They have all sorts of colors from gray to fluorescent green and patterns from camo to zebra print. Prices range from $1 to about $6, and there’s honestly a Duck Tape® color or pattern to suit just about any taste. So add a couple rolls of Duck Tape® to your school shopping lists, you never know when you might need Duck Tape® for something.
I have never personally tried to make anything more than a ball with Duck Tape® so I’m going to try it today, I my daughter and I ran to buy Duck Tape at Walmart! What do you think of our awesome Duck Tape® Folder?
