Duct Tape Craft Tips

Don't let your duct tape get the best of you. These are some helpful tips to make your crafting experience fun and memorable. The kids will be so excited when their crafts turn out perfectly.

  1. Fold over the edge of the tape when not in use. It can be tricky getting the edge of the tape roll unstuck after you've set it down for a while. Make it easy to start a new strip by folding over the corner or edge.

  2. Use parchment paper for prep! Here's a fun secret. Duct tape doesn't stick well on parchment paper. With this life-changing discovery, you can have you duct tape strips at the ready.

  3. Invest in duct tape friendly scissors. If you've ever tried cutting duct tape for a long period of time, you'll know how the adhesive can get caked on your scissors. Buying a pair of nonstick titanium scissors a your craft store will make your life so much easier.

  4. Use rubbing alcohol to remove adhesive. If you can't get special duct tape scissors, you can also use rubbing alcohol to remove the gummy adhesive. Just douse an old rag in the rubbing alcohol and use the scissors to snip the rag. It really works!

  5. Try using an Exacto knife. Using an Exacto knife instead of scissors is also a great option for precision. They're also much easier to clean and are less likely to get as gummy with adhesive as scissors.

  6. Peel paper away from Duck Tape sheets. When working with a fresh sheet of Duck Tape, lay the tape sheet face down and peel the paper away from the tape. This way the paper will curl instead of the tape.
