What youre going to need is

1 box cutter and or scissors

a cup or cylnder to mold around

and of course DUCT TAPE

When you use youre cup or cylinder i find easier to have it open on both ends so it is easier to remove

Step 2:

Now that you have your cup or cylinder (in my case i used a pringles snack can) you need to wrap the duct tape sticky side out around the cup or cylinder. and keep in mind that you should youse strips of duct tape like in the picture. please do this until you are to the edge of the cylinder.

BTW: dont be afraid to layer over the strips

Step 3: The topping

By the time your done it should look like these first two pictures. after youve made sure its wrapped up right you make a cross over the top like it is shown on the thrd picture. after that i would like you to make another cross angled over it like in the fourth picture. when thats done and you have a double opened cylinder you can look inside to see if it is done right 

Step 4: The cover

I forgot to mention two things
One its not the best quality I've ever done I was in a rush if you really nice and thorough quality u would weave the duct tape but its a lot harder and time consuming
Second that yellow bottle is made out of duct tape its basically the same concept as the cup
P.s. you could also make bowls as I did for my two dog or even large jugs.
