First things first. Check with your doctor before using duct tape, titanium, and dental floss to close a wound.
Through my internet travels I saw a picture which used a needle, thread, and duct tape to close a wound. It reminded me of how you can close a turkey with lacing cord and stainless pins. This is a hybrid of the two.
Since titanium is them most hypoallergenic material known to man, it was only natural to use it in a bandage. You can get 10 feet of it for about $10.00 from Rio Grand.
Step 1: Get Your Materials
For this project you will need:
- Duct tape
- Titanium Wire
- Dental Floss
- Parchment Paper
Step 2: Reinforce the Ends
Cut two strip of duct tape. Then fold the ends of the strips over 4 times. Place the strips, head to head, with the sticky side down on parchment paper.
Step 3: Punch Holes
Use crafting punch to cut four holes. One in each corner. If you don't have a crafting punch you can cut small slits with a knife.
Step 4: Cut Your Wire
Cut a section of titanium wire and roll over one end. You don't want any sharp edges.
Thread the wire through the holes as shown in the photos.
Roll over the remaining ends.
Roll up the bandage in the parchment paper for storage.
Step 5: Lace It Up
Place the bandage over you split skin. Pull the two strips together like you're pulling your shoe laces tight. Tie a couple knots to secure it. Thanks for reading.
