    Start Making Your Duct Tape Sheet

    Making your duct tape sheet using this method and a piece of paper is a lot easier than making a duct tape sheet without using the paper. Plus, the paper adds a little more firmness to your duct tape sheet.

    To make a duct tape sheet for this striped duct tape bracelet, start out by laying a plain piece of paper in front of you. You can use any kind of paper you want. You can even use up paper that has printing on it because the entire sheet will be covered.

    Now, cut a piece of duct tape around...MORE 4-inches long. Stick it, diagonally, across one corner of the piece of paper. Using a different color of duct tape, cut a piece of tape about 7-inches long. Lay this piece overlapping the first piece. Continue this, using as many colors of tape that you want, until the entire page is full.

    Now we can finish the other side of the duct tape sheet...

    To finish making your duct tape sheet, flip over your duct tape covered piece of paper. Cut a piece of duct tape about 11-inches long, and lay it across the side edge of the piece of paper. Cut a second piece of duct tape about 11-inches long and lay it on the paper, slightly overlapping the first piece of tape. Continue this until the entire piece of paper is covered with duct tape.

    We are now ready to start making the striped duct tape bracelet.

    To decide how long your bracelet needs to be, measure around your wrist and then add 2-inches. I made my bracelet 1-inch wide, but you can make it as wide as you like. Use a ruler and pen to draw out your duct tape bracelet template.

    Now we can cut out the template...

    There is just one more thing you need to do to finish your striped duct tape bracelet. Add a loop Velcro adhesive dot to the outside of one end of the bracelet. Add a hook Velcro adhesive dot to the inside of the opposite end of the bracelet.
