Introduction: Duct Tape Bows

Duct tape bows are great!
 You can put on shoes or clips or bracelets!

Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

First take either one or two colors.
Two colors if you want each side of the bow to be different.

Take your color and eye how big you want it to be. Normally I do 1 and a 1/2 by 1 and a 1/2.
Fold over the piece of duct tape while it is still attached to the roll.
Rip or cut the duct tape where the sticky and non-sticky side meet so you have a square that is not sticky.
Make one identical in size.

Step 2: Step 2

Before you start this step rip a piece of duct tape a half an inch wide. You will need it later.

Step 2
Take one of the squares and fold a sixth of the square towards the other end.
Then with out letting go flip the whole piece over so the non folded part of the square is towards you and then bring the folded side up
and crease so it is the same size as your last fold. Flip and fold, flip and fold until theres nothing left and do the same with the other square.

Step 3: Step 3

Take five duct tape rolls and stack them.
If you don't have enough duct tape you can use five practical things that weigh about the same as five duct tape rolls would.
Take your folded squares and put them on the bottom of the rolls.
I know it sounds silly but it works!

Leave them there for about 2 minutes and then take them out.

Step 4: The Final Step!

After you take them out, use the strip of duct tape you ripped before to tape the squares together.
