Along those same lines but not duct tape related... I blew a button on my pants at work. Figures its the one day I forgot to wear a belt too! I tried staples, they busted open shortly after. I ended up using some zip ties through the belt loops. It held good and made it through the day wardrobe malfuction-free!

I love duct tape

I'm known as the duct tape queen at school. I use it for bulletin boards, clothing errors and most recently put my wallpaper back up with the neon pink duct tape. I color code my guided reading books with colored duct tape. I love duct tape.:p
