Duct Tape Wallets

What is this mess you ask? Well, the cake frosting was delicious but the cake itself didn't turn out so well. So we resorted to eating the frosting off the top before I threw the whole thing away. Oh, you mean the red stuff! Why it's duct tape. Baby decided he'd try his hand at making duct tape wallets. These are some of his tries.


Olaf helped him and even found a youtube video for him to watch. He had a lot of fun making these and improving on the original design to make other things too, like change holders that you can stick anywhere.


He's so dang serious about it that I couldn't help but take a picture of him slaving away. As soon as he had made his first wallet Middle Child had the brilliant idea of selling them.


I think it's going to take a little more practice. But he's willing to try! Hopefully duct tape isn't too expensive.

I've seen a few duck tape wallets. These might make Birthday/Christmas gifts. They would be one of a kind. Baby is using the best color in the world.

I love how serious he is. It's really cute that he tried a lot of wallets before he finally asked for help. I'm so sorry the cake didn't work out, that is disappointing.

Love the picture of all the discarded wallet attempts scattered across the table. Looks like he's definitely taking this new endeavor seriously!

Those are way cool! I was one of those people Middle Child would have sold the wallet to! I bought one in middle school!!!

$4 a roll. I know, the kids think colored duct tape is the coolest thing ever and go buy it for themselves and decorate things with it. Mac and Alyssa both covered their binders last year and this year. Mac did Bronco colors, Alyssa did neon pink and lime green. I'm pretty sure that's what they are getting in their stockings this year!
