Duct Tape GiveawayHeads up:  Father’s Day is only 2 weeks away.  Every gift-buying holiday for my dad, I struggle with a good gift.  This year, I’m teaming up with my kids to make gifts for the dads in our life using 3M Scotch Color & Pattern Duct Tape.

Whether you’re personalizing their toolbox or making them a new wallet or belt, 3M Scotch Color & Pattern Duct Tape can bring out the creativity in this year’s gifts.  When I was in school, Duct Tape wallets were about as far as my friends took it, then I started hearing about prom dresses, purses and more.  We’re going to stick with simple and try to recreate this toolbox.


There are so many projects to keep you busy this summer.   You have plenty of tape options to choose from:  camouflage, Superman, Batman, solid colors, funky patterns… mix and match to fit your dad’s personality.

Diamond Walls

Side note:  Have you seen the beautiful diamond patterned wall that The Nester made with Duct Tape?  I love her resourcefulness and proof that “It Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful.”

The Giveaway:

5 Southern Savers readers are going to win 4 rolls of 3M Scotch Color & Pattern Duct Tape of their choosing.

To Enter:

Leave a comment below answering one of these questions:

1.  What are you going to make with 3M Scotch Color & Pattern Duct Tape this Father’s Day?
2.  What DIY project from the gallery do you want to take on this summer?

This Giveaway is sponsored by Scotch Brand Duct Tape, but all opinions are 100% my own.

The winner of this giveaway will be chosen and posted to the Giveaway Winners Page 6/9.
