If you are looking for the perfect gift for the Dad who has everything for Father’s Day the Camo duct tape wallet is perfect.  Kids and adults can easily fold this wallet from some camo printed duct tape.  The wallet will hold bills, credit cards and even business cards. 

After you’ve folded your camo duct tape wallet simply wrap a small box in a solid color paper.  Create a cute little camo bow to match with the mini Bowdabra bow maker.  Attach the bow to the box to embellish your gift with a coordinated colored bow.  It’s a gift dad is sure to love!

Materials:

Camo duct tape
Sheet of 8 ½” x 11” printer paper
Ruler
Scissors
Mini Bowdabra bow maker
Hair bow tool and ruler attachment
Bowdabra bow wire

Instructions:

1.     Cover a standard sized sheet of printer paper with the camo duct tape completely on one side.  Trim off all the excess duct tape all around.
