Step 1: Take Out Your Supplies
For this project, you will need one or two of the big duct tapes of any color and/or pattern. You can also use a small roll of washi tape of any color and/or pattern, instead of duct tape. Lastly, you will need a pair of scissors.
Step 2: Cut the Duct Tape
Take out ONLY one roll of duct tape and cut two strips, each of them 5 inches. While cutting, keep this in mind, your measurements DO NOT have to be exact.
Step 3: Place Them Together
Place one duct tape strip on the other, forming a two-sided piece of duct tape.
Step 4: Trim the Edges
Take out your scissors and trim the edges. Get rid of any excess duct tape.
Step 5: Fold the Duct Tape
Fold the piece of duct tape in a zig-zag pattern, like you would do to make a paper fan.
Step 6: Add More Duct Tape
Using your fingers, press together the middle of your bow. Add another piece of duct tape, which can be a different color or be the same color, in place of your fingers. And wallah, your very own duct tape bow is finished!!!
