Review of "Tape It & Make More: 101 More Duct Tape Activities," by Richela Fabian Morgan

Review of

Tape It & Make More: 101 More Duct Tape Activities, by Richela Fabian Morgan ISBN 9781438003344

Four out of five stars

Challenging projects for the patient person 

 I have no doubt that each of the 101 projects with duct tape in this book can be done, but I have even more doubt that they don’t require a high degree of manual dexterity and patience. As a frequent user of duct tape, I have experienced the frustration of having it inadvertently fold over and then having to throw that piece away as there was no way I could salvage it.

 These projects vary in complexity from the making of baskets to reusable sleeves for hot beverages. The more difficult ones require the precise folding and cutting of the sections of tape to specifications, something that has always eluded me. Explicit directions, list of materials and sequential images of the steps of the process are included, so there is no ambiguity in what has to be done. Therefore, if you have the skills to do this sensitive work, you will find this book a treasure of exciting and perhaps even marketable products. The rest of us can only try.
