DIY Duck Tape Bookmarks

The Knit Wit and her crew LOVE Duck Tape. I personally don’t think I have ever used it. I can not tell you how many times I have heard about her boys and their love for Duck Tape. So I decided to check it out during March Break. I mean what is the worse thing that could happen, I love it?

I was sent some fun Duck Tape products to check out and I was surprised. I mean this wasn’t your regular silver duck tape, but instead chalkboard tape, whiteboard tape, palm tree tape and Dry Erase Laminate. I was blown away when I ventured on their website and seen the endless selection of tapes and they were FUN! So next I had to get my craft on!

Duck Tape Bookmarks

Materials Needed:

Duck Tape Bookmark Materials

  • Duck Tape ( any colour, pattern or design)
  • Scissors
  • Paper ( I used scrap paper)
  • Marker
  • Scotch tape

Directions:

I folder my scrap paper in half. Then draw a triangle along the fold.

Cut the triangle out leaving the folded side uncut.  Tape the open edge so you end up with a pocket.

Duck Tape Bookmarks

Cut the Duck tape a little longer then your triangle and lay it sticky side up on a flat surface.

DUck Tape Bookmark

Place your triangle on the duck tape so that one side is completely covered. If you have extra, no worries just wrap it around the other side of the triangle. Repeat this step on the other side so all the paper is covered. Cut off any extra tape.

Duck Tape Bookmark

Always remember to check that you did not tape your bookmark closed. If you did just simply trim any excess, sticky tape off.

The possibilities are endless with Duck Tape. I can see us doing this at our next birthday party, then sending the kids hoe with a book and their new bookmark. I am getting excited thinking about it. I must say Shari over at The Knit Wit knew what she was talking about and I wish I would of got into crafting with Duck Tape sooner.

    That really is a very nice design on that tape. I couldn’t imagine how you were going to use duck tape as a book mark I must admit, this works well 🙂

    We too have never purchased any Duck Tape, but now we just may have to! I am sure they would find things out of it.

    I love this, going to make a few with my kiddo this afternoon. She’s a bookworm just like her dad.

    I’ve actually never seen this patterned duck tape and I think it’s marvellous. Must keep my eyes open next time in a suitable store. 🙂

    This would be a great project for me as I am always losing my book marks and, this way, I would be able to keep my page clearly marked.
    Thank you for this great and useful idea.
