Sticky Situation

Ask anyone's who has wrapped a gift or jazzed up a simple greeting card with patterned or washi tape and they'll tell you that you should think twice about all the things everyone's favorite adhesive can do. Platypus™ designer duct tape, for example, is sturdy, water-resistant, and possesses a smooth, matte finish, so it happens to be the ideal material to hold cash, cards, and receipts. In this one little package you'll find everything you'll need to create your very own wallet, with a stylish print and a slim profile that's made to stick around without gumming up or adding bulk to your back pocket.

This DIY kit includes easy-to-use instructions, templates, 2 rolls of patterned tape, and 4 high-quality metal corners that give your completed wallet a polished finish. Each kit is hand-printed, hand-stamped, and assembled in Raleigh, North Carolina, and includes enough materials to make a wallet for yourself and a good friend.

Waste not, want not: leftover scraps of tape can add a little extra oomph to luggage, book covers, shelves, instruments, and more!

                Love the product, instructions just take a few read throughs. Once figured out, a wonderful project for kids and grow ups alike. Great display and packaging, nice to have online instructions as well as a video...they both helped in constructing the wallet.

                        I had so much fun putting my wallet together. The instructions were very easy to follow and gave great guidance on how to craft the wallet. I'm so happy with my new wallet.

                        This DIY project is a sticky situation we'd like to be in the middle of! Would you create your own duct tape wallet with this kit?

                        Fun! Would like to see a few color choices. Especially like the metal corners.

                        Designer duct tape? Please, what next? If this duct tape were made from eco-friendly, upcycled or recycled materials, it MIGHT be interesting.

                        interesting idea, but be warned that they sell these types of kits at Target, so price point will be important. That said, the patterns found here may be more appealing to customers than those I mentioned.

                        Sure why not . It's different and may last a lot longer than leather.

                        Nice packaging and a fun crafty gift idea. Agree with others, this is an item you can find elsewhere so price point will be key.

                        My kids made these in 8th grade and sold them on the bus ...craft stores have even cooler designs in duct tape. Sorry but this is old news.

                        If you're that into doing a duct tape wallet, you would research it online and buy the tape. This kit really doesn't make sense.
