Captain America Tape Dispenser DIY
- Prepare Cardboard Pieces as per the size of the Cello Tape
Cut out the cardboard pieces in the shape of the Tape box according to the size of the Tape you have at home. Prepare two small pieces also with the provision to hold the wooden stick holding the cello tape. Paste the small pieces on the big pieces as shown in the video.
- Prepare the Tape Holder
Cut 2 circular pieces of cardboard with holes in the center and roll a thin cardboard to make a frame to hold the cello tape (as shown in the video). Pass a wooden stick through the hole.
- Put together the structure of the Tape Box
Take all the other pieces of cardboard and paste them together to make the structure of the tape box.
- Attach the blade to cut the tape
Take a pencil sharpener and remove the blade with the help of a screwdriver. You can now attach this blade to the front of the tape box in a position so that it can cut the tape easily. Cover the blade with another piece of cardboard, leave the sharp edge on the top uncovered to actually cut the tape.
- Load the Tape into the Dispenser
Paint and decorate the tape dispenser in your favorite colors and favorite superhero stickers.
You are ready to use the tape dispenser once you load the tape with the holder into the box. Have fun and keep creating.
