If you love duck tape you can make a duck tape wallet if you want to.To make a duck tape wallet you need duck tape, and your hands and scissors.First you  lay out four wide strips of duck tape and make sure they are in a row of four and they are stuck together at the tip.Then you make another row of four then put the duck tape over each other. Then it should look like a sheet of duck tape. Then you should fold the bottom of the sheet then get duck tape and tape the open sides. Sometimes if you put your money  they fall out so make a velcrow{ If you have velcrow} or make a duck tape tab by taping a strip of duck tape and tape it to the back  so when you want to put your money in it stays in. You can buy Velcrow,Duck Tape, and scissors at Wal-Mart.

Your name (first name only!): Serenity (I'm very proud of that name)

Your age: I'm 13 years old.

Are you crafty?? No, not really, but I would be glad to hop on and craft with you guys!!!

What are your favorite crafts?? Um...I like experimenting with sequins, buttons, and other things like that.

Is there a particular project you're MOST proud of? I am most proud of my mobiles I made with hangers, yarn, paper plates, a hole puncher, markers, and of course, sequins. I LOVE sequins!!!!!!! But my mom took it down because it was taking up too much space. frown

So yeah. That's my post, and I hope the moderator notices!

Name: Abigail ( I prefer Abby. And that you call me by my real name, not my username.)

Age: 14

Am I crafty: I think I am. 

Favorite crafts: Sewing and drawing. (I would like to paint, but can't afford canvas and paint, and I HATE asking my parents for things.) 

Project I'm most proud of: I have a couple; a denim skirt and a cute cupcake apron I made for a friend's birthday. 

P.S. sunsetseeker18, I think it's awesome that you are still on scholastic despite your age! (I'll still be reading books for kids when I'm an adult.)
