Make a Duck Tape® ID Case

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Did you know that you can buy Duck Tape at Walmart?  Right now, you will find a display in the Back to School section of the store and one in the hardware section near the spray paint and wood stains.  Because it is both strong and decorative, Duck Tape® is fantastic for making or embellishing school supplies.  You can let your child express his personality and know the tape is rugged enough to stand up to the punishment school supplies inevitably receive.

When challenged to created a back to school project using Duck Tape®, I chose to make a simple case for a student ID that could be clipped to a backpack of lanyard for safe keeping.

 
To make a Duck Tape® ID Case, you will need:
Duck Tape®
craft knife
straight edge
transparent plastic (check your recycling bin)
split ring
self- healing cutting mat or cutting board and ruler

Duck® brand makes tape in so many colors and patterns, that it is easy to customize the case to your child’s interests. My Walmart carried tapes featuring superheroes, sports logos, skateboards, flowers, peacock feathers, animal prints, and so many more.  I was THISCLOSE to buying a roll of tape that was covered in little sunglasses-wearing pickles and that read “Dill with it.”

After debating between Marvel Superheros and Mario Bros., I ended up choosing this tape because my son is HUGE into superheroes right now.  And I think The Avengers are pretty cool myself.

The ID case has a transparent side so the student’s ID is visible without having to be removed from the case (and dropped and lost…).

If you are creating an ID case to accomodate a typical ID card size (3 1/4″ x 2 1/8″), you will need to create three Duck Tape® shapes according to the size chart above.  You also need to cut a rectangle of clear plastic that is 3 1/2″ x 2 1/4″.  I cut my rectangle out of the lid of a plastic container.  Check your recycling bin for something suitable.

Since this is a project that is much easier to recreate following visual directions, I created a little video for you to walk you through the process.

You can easily attach the case to your child’s backpack to ensure he always has it with him at school.  The keychain can also be linked to a set of keys or a lanyard, if needs be.

The case would also protect your student’s bus pass or library card.  Or you can use it like a luggage tag to keep her backpack or keys from going missing.
