Hey!  Uncle Si and Phil’s grandkids would love the duct tape creativity at our house!  Clean and simple fun for the whole family . . .

Check out the cool binder my daughter and granddaughter made by simply recovering an old ugly one.  Wouldn’t this be a fun project for school/scout/church groups to do for back-to-school?  You could ask businesses to donate old binders, folders, etc.  Then simply set up tables in a large room loaded with donated duct tape, stickers, and Sharpie markers (along with skilled helpers, of course), and invite kids to come and make their own amazing looks.

We have also found a fun way to use duct tape scraps. Simply stick them onto a piece of lightweight cardboard.  You can then cut into fun shapes.  Be sure to save the leftover silhouette for some other creative moment.

You can also keep adding scraps until you end up with an interesting collage.  Just have fun with it and don’t worry about the wrinkles.   This is the collage I used to make some birthday cards for my grandsons.

I couldn’t resist adding a little star-spangled glitz.

Pretty cool,  huh?  Perfectly messy and funky.

As an excuse for my laziness, I carried the theme through on the inside of the cards.  Cuz any granny could give cards with boring old typed-up messages.

Here are a couple of sites you might like for more inspiration:

Would love to hear about your own duct tape creations!  In the meantime, I’ll be catching up on a little relaxing TV time with the Robertson’s.  And I’ll be wondering:

Will my creations inspire Jase to duct tape Willie’s office?

Will Korie and Missy use duct tape to brighten up Martin’s bachelor pad?

Will Uncle Si finally make a duct tape shoulder bag for his beloved Tupperware cup?

Hey!  If it quacks like duct tape you can bet your whistle it will make everybody happy happy happy.

Seriously though, wouldn’t all those beards get stuck in the tape?  Ouch.  Could The Robertson Men meet the challenge?

That’s what I’m talkin’ about!
