Duck the Halls time again! When you find all sorts of creative uses for the fantastic holiday prints from DuckBrand®
Some of my own favorite uses are:
- Stealth gift tags- A great way to keep people guessing, pick a print for each person on your list and label their gifts with just a strip of tape. On Christmas morning, tell them which print is theirs.
- DuckTape® Gift book - a notebook to keep track of sizes, preferences of the people you buy gifts for
- Chains, bows and all sorts of things you can make with paper work great using DuckBrand® tapes as well (and have you seen their fabric tapes?)
- reusuable pouches (tutorial below)
These pouches are super easy to make, inexpensive and can be re-used or be a gift as well. Because DuckBrand® makes so many great prints and colors they are easy to customize.
You will need:
- Sliding zipper sandwich bags
- non-stick scissors
- Duck Tape®!
- optional- hole punch to make hangers for the pouches
To start with, cut off a piece of tape the same width as the bottom of the bag and tape the bottom. If you want to cut off the bottom to make a smaller sized pouch like one for a cash gift- do that first.
Now cover both sides of the bag with tape! I made it a little long, then trimmed it.
Last step is to cut 2 pieces of tape as long as the pouch, and tape the sides so it's all nice and neat. You can also add a small tape tag and punch it with the hole punch for a hanging hole.
I was discussing this with my son, and we talked about other things we could do with the finished pouches. They would be great for kid's wallets for example. DuckTape® comes in so many great prints that it's easy to make these just perfect for anyone on your list.

One final quick gift idea- If you get really pinched for time- rolls of Duck Tape® make a fantastic gift. Include a pair of non-stick scissors for crafty friends!
