This instructable is for people who can't leave home without duct tape and are tired of the bulk.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need; a junk credit card (or similar sized piece of plastic), duct tape, a permanent marker, a ruler, scissors, a place to hold tape (pocket will do but altoids taste better) and a brain.
This may sound too easy and even trivial, but why not JUST use the duct tape on it's self (flatten a piece on itself), that way it won't be any bulkier, you can use every piece of it, it can be made to size for the job or the weight you want.... Sounds so good I want to give it a go. <br><br>Just seems like you can make it more portable by not adding unnecessary bulk. my2cents
Just to be a pain...an extra idea using some card or something that can be cut but is quite think i would make the side a little thicker and therefore stronger... (Y)
Can someone lend me there brain, I dont have all the supplies I need...
Don't worry, You can buy one at the dollar store! That's what my friend did!
Yay for the dollar store! :) This is getting alittle of topic, plz don't respond to my comment any more :)
This comment right here?
im responding hahahahahahahahahahaha
where do u live ill give u mine...lol
yah, this one camping article said wrap it around a cut to size pen tube, and then put it in a film canister, or just keep wrapping it. good instructable though
that sounds like a better idea. but both are equally good.
yeh it works good, and my lil sis is talking in her sleep lol random
maybe you could make a wheel to wrap duct tapeand a hole on the side as exit then when you need it pull and use the sharp edge to cut
not bad but i still like the instructable on flattening the duct tape better found them both because when i'm bored, i search "duct tape" on here lol
Very nice instrucable. Useful and easy
My town's video store gave me 2 cards when I signed up. They are both in my wallet, but one's a 'flat pack'!
Great instrutable, you can also add electric tape(if you need) and paint the card so is more "cool"
Pfft, no one uses film anymore; I use my Nalgene bottle.
Your->Something belonging to you You're->You are done Pet Peeve. Have to put it in there.
I know. It happens so often that you would think it would stop. Maybe I should just stop.
nice idea, that's pretty cool
Tis really cool
my late grandfather would have loved this
very creative i think ill try this next time i go camping i always wrapped it around a pen tube and cut it to size
hey, iv been doing this exact same thing for years :-) but just i dont put it in an altoids can lol
Very nice. My dad hikes/camps/kayaks a lot, and he usually just winds some tape around an old film canister. This is a bit less bulky though.
