Got Tape?: Roll Out the Fun With Duct Tape! by Ellie Schiedermayer

People love duct tape. Whether it is Red Green fixing everything in sight with the material on his PBS television show or kids fashioning wallets to give to their dads on Father's Day, duct tape is here to stay. Now children and adults can make 30 fun, kooky, and unique projects with everyone's favorite fix-all, including a picture frame, visor, purse, tie, and postcards. All projects are made solely of duct tape; no other supplies except, scissors are needed! Crafters can then decorate their unique creations with embellishing tools like stickers and markers. Ranging in difficulty from easy to more advanced, each project is presented with step-by-step instructions and photographs.
