We love all things Duck Tape® in our household. It’s so easy to use and with my daughters going back to school here in just a couple of days, I thought it would be perfect to come up with a fun craft that kids will find useful too. Here’s a quick and easy tutorial to make a Duck Tape® Chapstick Holder that can be used in a binder or attached to a backpack.
- Duck Tape® in Your Favorite Color or Pattern
- X-Acto Knife
- Metal Straight Edge Ruler
- Bungee Cord or Cording (approx. 9″)
- Your favorite flavor Lip Balm
Step 1: Lay out a strip of Duck Tape® approximately 7-8 inches in length with the sticky side up. Take another piece slightly longer and adhere it to your other piece, sticky sides together. Trim off the bottom to make a straight edge.
Step 2: Take the edge you just trimmed and fold it over 1/4″ towards the top of your strip and tape it in place. Next, use your straight edge and x-acto knife to cut & straighten up the edge. Don’t take too much off the side. Measure over 1-3/4″ from the straightened edge and trim the other side.
Step 3: Measure 2″ up from the bottom of your strip and make a crease or fold. Measure down another 1/2″ from the first crease and make another crease. This helps create a wider bottom for your lip balm.
Step 4: Tape both sides creating a pocket. Trim any extra length of Duck Tape®.
Step 5: Measure up 4-1/4″ from the bottom and cut straight. Measure 1/2″ back from that edge and make a fold or crease. Tape this in place on the backside and trim up any rough edges.
Step 6: Take your 9″ length of bungee cord or cording and thread it through the fold you just made. Tie it off or tie it to a backpack.
That’s it. You now have a super cute and custom made holder for your lip balm. Your child might never have chapped lips again, and with 200 prints and colors to choose from by Duck Tape®, anyone will be able to create a holder that fit’s their personality.
