@bernardN9 captured this great duct tape auto body work on a van in Belgium.  If I got in a wreck right now, this is how I'd have to fix my truck, too.  You can get silver duct tape from TapeBrothers.com.

Duct Tape Butterfly Hair Clip from Kim Goodwin

on . Posted in Tape Crafts

Kim Goodwin from Duct Tape Creations made this beautiful Duct Tape Butterfly Hairclip. Here's how she did it:

First, she makes two duct tape sheets using the Totally Tie-Dye Duck Brand Duct Tape, and puts wire between the sheets for extra support. Then she cuts out the shape for each wing.

For the black detail, Kim traced out the wing shape and cut holes in Black Duct Tape so the Tye-Die duct tape would show through and make the wing pattern.

She cut little circles out of White Duct Tape to make the spots on the wings. The body was made by rolling up black duct tape.

You can see more of Kim Goodwin's work at her Duct Tape Creations page on Facebook.

The tapes used in this project can be purchased from TapeBrothers.com:

Experimental Airlines Longest Wingspan Contest

on . Posted in Tape Projects

Our friend Ed Orsine from Experimental Airlines challenges remote control aircraft enthusiasts around the country to build exceptional planes using foam and carton tape from TapeBrothers.com. While the foam provides the structure of the aircraft, the tape makes the surface smooth and reinforces the strength of the foam. Also it makes the planes look pretty. Here are some planes entered for the Longest Wingspan Content. The winner, Codefreezer, built a plane with a 17’ wingspan that stayed aloft for 60 seconds, landed, and relaunched (check out his videos on YouTube). He wins a $75 gift certificate to TapeBrothers.com to buy tape for a future project. Great job, and thanks Ed for promoting us with your awesome contests.

Heather Anne Richards from Handmade by Heather made this Duct Tape Baby Bow.  Here's how she did it:.  She takes two strips of tape about 11" long and sticks them together and cuts them in half.  Then she cuts them in half again so she has four skinny 11" strips.  Then she cuts them to about four inches and folds then and hot glues them together.  She does the same thing for the top bows, except they are 2 1/2" strips.  The flower is an embellishment (not duct tape).
