I don’t know about you but I absolutely love mini organizing stations. Sometimes a good one can be hard to come by which is why today I am going to show you an easy way to create a duck tape organizing caddy. One that can go in any space,literally. The one thing I love about this caddy is you can choose the exact design or color of Duck Tape that you want! You can use this for a craft station, wrapping station, art station or a toy station. Let’s get started!
The great thing about this crafts is choosing the colors you want! The Duck brand has so many options now I am certain you will not get stuck in that department.
I will tell you if you are a duck tape fan these scissors are a must. They glide through the tape without sticking and we all know that makes our crafting a dream come true. Fiskars created these scissors specifically for The Duck Brand. They come in two different sizes and you won’t regret getting both sizes!
Step 1: Cut the sides of your trash bag and lay it out on a flat surface.
Step 2: Lay your stool on it’s side. It does not matter which side you work with initially.
Step 3: Grab a marker and trace out the “inside” of the side section.
Step 4: Reverse the stool and trace the same section like below.
Step 5: Cover the entire section of your outline with duck tape. It’s ok if the tape runs over the outlines. This is what it will look like when it’s done completely filled.
Step 6: Flip your trash bag over. You will still see your sharpie line even when flipped over. Kinda cool huh! Step 7: Grab your Fiskars duck edition scissors and cut along the lines.
Step 8: Fold your cut out in half. This is the start of a bag that will hang on the stool.
Step 9: Place a strip of duck tape along the side of the bag leaving enough hanging over the edge to fold on the other side.
Step 10: Cut off the excess along the “bottom” of the bag. DO NOT cut the top pieces off.
These are the top straps. Because there is some sticky tape exposed we will use this to hang the bag onto the stool.
If you want to make a large bag do the same thing. Lay the stool out sideways and trace out the top and bottom section, twice.
Fill in the space like you did earlier for the small bag.
Cut out your pieces making sure to not cut the sections in half. We want this bag to be long! We are doing the same steps as we did for the small bag. Pretty simple ey!
Place one piece on top of the other. If you have any piece that looks too long you can trim it now.
Tape up the sides and bottom, trimming the excess when done. For this bag I cut the top straps because I will show you how to make your own straps.
To make the straps take a strip of duck tape and cut it in half. You can just place these on the back side of a bag you make then attach it to a bar on your stool. Once you get going on these bags they will get easier and easier.
You can spice up your bag by adding a strip of duck tape along the bottom. Take a strip fold the top part down a little then adhere it to the bag with the sticky part.
