Step 1: Materials and Tools
1. For the duct tape, you can use any two colors, but it might look better if you used contrasting colors.
2. For the pattern or template, you can use a printed picture, a drawn picture, anything you like that you don't mind cutting up.
1. For the craft knife, i used an X-Acto knife, but you can use any craft blade thats sharp enough.
2. Safety goggles should be used, because knives are very dangerous and your eyes are very important.
3. For the cutting board, I used a junked half cover of a binder, because its hard, and the plastic layer on the binder allows you to remove the duct tape without too much difficulty.
4. Scissors are optional because you won't use them very much besides for cutting out the pattern. You can always just use the craft knife instead.
5. The Sharpie is for tracing your pattern on to the duct tape so you can cut it out.
Step 2: Template/ Picture
Step 3: Duct Tape
Cut out two same length strips, one of each color, and stick them onto your cutting board. The length of your duct tape depends on how large your picture/pattern is, but at the end you can cut out what you don't need. If your picture is too big, try making it smaller and printing it again, or if you drew it, you can draw it smaller or scan it and resize it then print it again.
Step 4: Tracing the Cut-Out Picture
Step 5: Cutting the Picture Out of the Duct Tape
Step 6: Sticking the Stencil on to the Second Piece of Tape
note: If some small parts are still stuck to the cutting surface, carefully pry them up with your craft knife. Try not to rip anything, but dont panic if you do. You can always patch it up with another piece of tape.
