It’s 2 weeks until school starts for us.  That means it’s time to take our list of required school supplies and do the complicated balancing act of getting what the teacher asks for and getting what your child would like.
I headed to Walmart to make it easy to find all the required school supplies in one store. And to get them at a reasonable price.  You know what else you can find at Walmart?  Yep, so many different styles of Duck Tape.
Isn’t Duck Tape just the best thing ever?  The possibilities of projects are endless when I look at that rack of Duck Tape. Adding Duck Tape to school supplies will make that balancing act of what the teacher wants and what my child wants just a little easier.  We can embellish the item required by the teacher and make it just that much cooler with Duck Tape.
 I had to grab a roll and rush home to make a back-to-school surprise for my son.
I copied the main image on the cover of the first comic book my son ever received onto card stock and then grabbed the rest of my supplies; paper cutter, scissors, Duck Tape, envelope to use as a template and a pen.

I traced around the envelope template onto my card stock (I positioned the main image so that it would show when the envelope is opened).

Then I flipped the card stock over and covered the back of the envelope template with Duck Tape.  I took the time to line the pattern up on each new row of tape.

Then I cut the envelope out on the lines I’d traced and folded the flaps in to form an envelope.

I taped the flaps down using one piece of Duck Tape across the back of the envelope.  Then I folded a small piece of Duck Tape onto itself to form a loop when I attached it on both ends to the envelope.  This loop makes it easy to close the envelope by tucking the top flap under the loop.

I added an index card with all the contact numbers for our family members and a couple of dollars for emergency lunch money.
Thanks to the Duck Tape this envelope is durable enough to survive an entire year in a 10-year-old boy’s backpack.
It would be a great project to do together with your child one afternoon before school starts.  Be sure to follow @TheDuckBrand on Twitter for lots of other great project ideas.

So when you run out to to pick up school supplies at Walmart, just add a roll of Duck Tape (or two) to your list.  buy Duck Tape at Walmart
