This is the most unusual craft project book you have ever seen: a tongue-in-cheek guide to 18 craft projects using only duct tape. The famous grey metallic tape now comes in designer colours, and there is even a transparent version to delight the DIY crafter! The book is an instructive and very funny guide to ripping, cutting and folding ordinary duct tape to make a such unlikely gift items as: wallet; drinks cooler/lunchbox; toilet roll cover; tool belt; mobile phone holder; baseball cap; watchband; shower curtain; waterproof apron; cup holders; sou'wester; and doggie raincoat. It includes 18 craft projects using Duct Tape - the DIY enthusiast's secret weapon. (NASA has a written policy that requires every space shuttle mission to carry at least one roll of "the grey tape") "Spare the duct tape, spoil the job!" Duct tape has a cult following among DIY enthusiasts: there are duct-tape clubs and web-sites.
