Wednesday Wonder- I love duct tape

In the early 80’s we were driving to a how in Orange county and we saw a car
that had duct tape all over it. Everything on this car was duct taped together.
As we got closer there was a bumper sticker and it said “I love duct tape”. I
thought it was awesome. It was creatively done and even the bumper was taped

My youngest daughter, who has always been a trendsetter, duct taped her whole
back pack, it looked great.

It was amazing how many kids started doing stuff like that to their school

I loved it and her back pack was indestructible and almost waterproof, saved
me money too!

Now there are all colors and prints in duct tape. I so want to buy them all
every time I see them.

There are even How to books totally devoted to duct tape.

This my friend is a non-traditional art medium.

There are also all kinds art being made with duct tape

seen” and auctioned it off at a public television fund raiser. It brought $1000.
