Congratulations on coming to the finalist ! To be honest ... I only saw this once it came to the finalist! Good job! These packaging tape reminded me of my childhood when my parents were importing things... :-) I haven't seen these tapes I'm a long time since they stopped importing ... Will keep a special lookout for it in future .. Thanks for posting!

Excellent instructions and fantastic reuse. Now I am wondering if it could be done with the metal straps.....could be interesting...

look forward to finding out how you might work with metal straps. I guess special tools would be needed.
