DIY Duct Tape Dots Make Awesome Portable Adhesives

Duct tape is one the best ways to stick things together, but keeping a roll with you all the time isn’t practical. If you’re looking to patch a few holes, or you just want an emergency set in your wallet, Instructables user Mrballeng shows you how to create your own Band-Aid-style dots.

The dots are made by layering the duct tape to sheets of wax paper and then punching them out with a gasket punch. You could, of course, also just cut them out if you don’t have a gasket punch sitting around. The wax paper is layered in a way that creates an easy to remove backing so you can store them anywhere. After all, you never know when you’re going to need a little duct tape to patch up a hole or fix something.
