The easiest way to cut Duck Tape® and create with it is by using a cutting mat.  The tape easily pulls off and the lines help you measure and cut.  A craft knife won’t get stuck to the tape like some scissors.  

Many of thees crafts can be made with ribbon or paper, but I love using Duck Tape® because it’s strong and durable.  It’s going to hold up on your presents under the tree and when you’re transporting them.  Nothing like losing a bow in the wind while walking into Grandma’s house.  

Christmas Gift Bow

Cut 7 strips of Duck Tape®, 3 at 10 inches 3 at 9 inches and 1 at 3 inches.  Using the measuring lines on a cutting mat, fold each strip over onto itself to make 3/4 inch strips so that the entire sticky side is covered.  Next, take the 6 longer strips and fold them into double loops securing with a small piece of tape.  Fold the small 3 inch strip into a loop.  Start laying the double loops on top of one another, using tape in between, to make a full bow.  Finish the layering with the loop in the center.  Tape this bow onto any box to give it some instant style! 

Bunting

Measure a length of twine to wrap around your gift.  Then cut 4 inch strips of gold, green and silver Duck Tape®.  Fold each strip in half over the twine and press together. Then using a craft knife, cut each piece into a triangle.  This makes a pretty and colorful bunting that can be wrapped around a gift.  

Gift Box Bow

This gift box bow is ideal for a box with a lid.  Start by wrapping red Duck Tape around the bottom and top of the box separately, this allows the gift to be wrapped, but the recipient can easily open it.  Measure 2 12 inch strips of Duck Tape® and 2 4 inch strips and carefully press the sticky sides together to give you 2 solid strips.  Fold the long strip into 2 loops and secure with tape.  Then fold the small strip around the middle and secure with tape to complete the bow.  Stick this to the top of the box for a beautiful gift box bow that can be reused again and again.

Oh my word! I never would have thought to use Duct tape for gift wrapping. My bows might just survive attacks from my crazy cats!!

OK...I love them all...but especially that bunting!!! What a fun idea and can be used next year. I hadn't considered Duck tape for wrapping before (though we use it for just about everything else!)

Thanks for the inspiration.

Hugs, Lynn
