Tips for Working With Duct Tape

It's long-lasting, water-resistant and neater than paint — and if you mess up, you can just peel it off and start again. It's easiest to cut the tape with a utility knife with a sharp blade. But if you do use scissors and the blades get gummed up, wipe them with a little Goo Gone.

To cut the tape with a utility knife, stick the tape on a cutting mat (available at craft stores) or parchment paper. Use a straight edge, like a ruler, to get precise lines. After cutting, just peel off the tape and apply. To make sure the edges don’t peel up, run over each strip firmly with a straight edge, like an old credit card, after you apply it.
