Who moved my Duct Tape?

“Duct tape is like the force:  It has a dark side and a light side and it holds the universe together.”
– Carl Zwanzig

I don’t know who ACTUALLY invented Duct Tape… I know, the mighty Google could tell me but honestly I just don’t care enough to do the research. What I do know is 2 things. (1) I can never find duct tape at my house when I need it and (2) Duct Tape can be used to fix, alter or make almost anything better in some way shape or form.

It’s no secret that I do car repairs… I once had a 1987 Mercedes that I joked was held together by rubber bands and duct tape.

But what REALLY amazes me are the things that people do with Duct Tape that don’t involve fixing or attaching things so I thought I’d share a few with you. Because come on, everyone could use a smile.

  1. Love the duct tape hype right now. I teach high school so see many wonderful creations – and with the variety of colors and patterns you can get, the options are endless. A good creative outlet for teens (and adults 🙂 )

  2. You’re inspiring me! lol
