We’re “Rolling Right Along!”

Hey y’all,

It’s Lissa, Rob’s Marketing Muse and one of the Platypus People here at Platypus Designer Duct Tape.

Today, we’re getting our blog on with our first “Rolling Right Along” post…and the start of many more posts to come. We’re really excited about it!

The packages you see here were super fun to craft and part of the set design for our first short film called “Remake Christmas: Make it with Tape,” shot by the talented team over at Taproot Films in Durham, NC.

Click here to watch the spot on our Designer Duct Tape YouTube Channel. It’s TOTALLY unexpected!

(Talk about festive – we were celebrating the holidays in the warehouse way back in October. It was quite a sight! And I’ll post some behind the scenes pics soon….)

The bows you see were handmade by one of our “Community Crafters,” Tamara who collaborated with me on the designs. She’s pretty awesome.

Here’s how you can do it too:

  • Find modern + colorful gift wrap. These are from Paper Source.
  • Select a fun gift topper. I found these gorgeous handmade lollipops at The Candy Store in San Francisco, but candy canes or old-fashioned candy sticks would work too.
  • Coordinate your bows with your Designer Duct Tape gift “ribbon.” Any combo you fancy!
Our choices included:
I even gussied up the packages with some pretty French ribbon generously donated by Rob’s mom, Louise Jordan. She was the “Production Assistant” on our holiday film shoot – and pretty much the best PA ever! You can read more about her here.

Happy wrapping!

P.S. Speaking of “wrap,” you should download “Christmas in Hollis” by Run-DMC. It’s one of my fave holiday tunes!
