For the Duct Tape Challenge I made a a Duct Tape Wallet with a detachable bow that doubles as a hair bow. A few people asked me for a tutorial so here it is Smiley



1. Cut two strips of duct tape slightly longer than the length that you want you finished bow to be.
2. Put the sticky sides together to make your base piece. Try to get the long side edges as close to even as you can but if there's a little extra showing its alright. You most likely will have extra on the ends... Perfectly fine.
3. Cut the ends down to the length that you want your bow.
4. Cut a piece of tape that is slightly longer than your base piece and cut that piece into 4-5 skinny strips.


5 and 6. Take one of the skinny strips and fold it over the edge.
7. Do this for all sides and ends. You can do these in a different color even. DO NOT THROW AWAY EXTRA! You'll use some of it later. 
8. Fold your base piece down the middle like a fan. I like to fold the middle in half then go from there, making sure the two halves match up in the number of folds and equally sized folds.


9,10, and 11: Take a skinny strip from earlier and wrap it around the middle once, ending on the side that you have decided to be the back.
12: Time for the bobby pin.


13: Open the bobby pin and place the remaining part of the strip between the two prongs about halfway. Make sure that the swiggly prong is the one that will be folded in toward the bow.
14: The rest of the strip will probably go around the bow a few more times. Each time take it between the prongs.
15 and 16: Done. Wear it in your hair, put it on a purse, whatever. Have fun. And since duct tape can be bought in so many different colors and designs, there's endless possibilities. Smiley
