For some reason or another, duct tape crafts have taken the world by storm. I attribute it to the awesome patterns and colors that are being produced, but also to the unpredictability of the material. Not that you can't predict how it will act, but that you can't predict how many amazing kids' crafts can be created from the fancy stuff.
You might assume duct tape can't be used to make a dress, and then some crafty genius releases pictures of a frock made entirely from duct tape. The list of previously thought impossible duct tape projects that have been accomplished goes on for pages. Make a DIY bracelet, arrange a bouquet, support your watch face, or construct a drum all using the same magic material.
