This is a very simple duct tape Instructable for making a buckle fastening out of duct tape.
I used mine to make buckles to hold a cardboard art portfolio closed.

The last picture is a diagrammatic overview of all of the pieces of duct tape you will need to make one buckle.

(Materials: duct tape)

Step 1: Fold strips

1 long and 2 short pieces of tape.
Fold each of those three into thirds so there are no sticky bits showing.
This is awesomely useful Selkey! I can't tell you how many time I've had my large storage container explode because it had too much stuff. DEFINITELY going to invest in this.
