These simple drink coasters are made from duct tape and cardboard. If it's not obvious, they were in fact inspired by the Cardboard and Duct Tape Contest, (please vote if you like) but my fondness for coasters of all kinds also played a role. My wife contributed as well, suggesting I make the American Flag. Not much is needed as far as materials go and these can be completed in a short amount of time. I will show you how to make the American Flag, but other flags and really any design you are skilled enough to cut out of duct tape could also be made.

Step 1: Materials/Tools

  • Duct Tape: Red, White and Blue (or any other color for your flag/design)
  • Cardboard
  • Spray Gloss (optional)
  • White Latex Craft Paint
  • Sheet of Self-adhesive Felt
  • Ex-acto Knife
  • Ruler
  • Pen (not shown)
  • Scissors (not shown)
  • Fine Tip Paint Brush
