Duct tape has many household uses and my father swears that duct tape and  a little ole down home ingenuity can fix just about anything, but who knew duct tape was the new go-to for crafting and projects? Since duct tape is versatile and now colorful, it can be used in many craft projects.

This how-to guide features 58 projects from earring trees and Iphone cases to lanyards and  backpacks. Chapter One gets the beginner started. It outlines the three most important needs: a work surface which is  the most important thing since duct tape sticks to everything. Duct tape is made by various suppliers--some come in only a few colors while Duck brand comes in colors and patterns. The price of tape varies as well. A good pair of scissors and you're all set!

Each project features  easy to follow  step-by-step instructions with photos of each step. The skill level is listed by the project name as well as the projected time it takes to complete the project.

Crafters, tweens and teens will be excited to try and make duct tape projects they can make, wear and give as gifts.

Recommended grade 5-up and for any crafter.
