Creative uses for duct tape that really work!

Duct Tape Shoe

My daughters love duct tape. Not the silver kind that I am fond of. They love the zebra stripe or pink duct tape that is now popular as a craft project. They make everything with the stuff from folders to flip-flops as seen here. This is definitely not their father’s duct tape.

Their father, the marketing guy, has always used duct tape creatively. In fact, recently I attempted (unsuccessfully) to fix my transmission with the stuff. This is nowhere near as creative though as the person who thought to make it various colors and patterns and convert it to a craft item.

I wonder what other household items we use are ripe for a reinvention? I think I’ll go ask my kids.
