Duck Tape Bookmark





Introduction: Duck Tape Bookmark

An incredibly easy bookmark.

(I didn't invent this but the technique is my own. Refine it as you will.)

Step 1: Materials

For this bookmark you will need:

Paper or Index Cards
Duck Tape of your choice

Step 2: Shaping Your Bookmark.

Cut the index card in half or however you'd like. Experiment with different shapes if it floats your boat.

Step 3: Adding the Tape

Put the tape down and place your paper of choice on it without making creases...unless that's the effect you're going for. Be creative.

Step 4: Trim the Edges

Trim the excess tape from the ends.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 3 and 4

Cover the other side with tape and trim the edges.

Step 6: Enjoy Your New Bookmark!

You did it. It's a pretty awesome bookmark. Enjoy!

This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!

I have a bookmark similar to your bookmark. I would like you to make an instruction about it. You don't even need to mention me but just let me use your instruction in the future, please!

there IS another way for more expierienced duck tape builders.make it like you would make a duck tape bracelet, but don't connect it...

I have a suggestion. Instead of using brand new index cards, it might be suggested to recycle items such as the subscription postcards that fall out of magazines or advertisement postcards. You can make so many that, if you are of a mind, they can be sold for a very low price, say in conjunction with a local library's book sale. The library's Friends of the Library might even help with purchase of duct tape and some labor and would benifit. And decorative "decals" might be added even if they are made simply from a contrasting color of duct tape.

Nice, saw this right now. Let me suggest to add an elastic thread to advance your bookmark as you can see here.

Nice job! I like this one, it looks actually really cool indeed, nice job.
