My troublemaking friends and I got a roll of CAUTION tape last week by means unmentionable... but now I don't know what to do with it!

I've used it as a belt already (see below).

I am usually pretty crafty, but I need some ideas. Any suggestions?

make a "wrap around" bra like top, with a big bow.. wrap it over a skirt to make it look as the whole skirt is caution tape--can do this withh almost all clothes.

The only tip I've got for you, do not wear it like Lady Gaga or Rihanna, it just doesn't suit anyone.

Get a strapless dress that has a color matching the caution tape then wrap the top & tip of the dress or whatever you want. Just don't make it look like the dress is all made out of caution tape! I wish this helps. :)

Stick two lengths together sticky side down so you have a double-sided ribbon that says "caution" on both sides. Make it into a big bow and but it anywhere. Bags, shoes, hair..

I have so much tape left over from none the less, a Lady Gaga Party. Haha. But I've used it in art projects and then the bow idea is your best bet because you can make it for anything and make is as big as you want. The yellow really stands out so make small ones and sew them on something, or make it big for a bolder statement. Use that noodle, you've got this :]

take like 8 layers, fold on top of each other, and make sure its a little longer than the circumference of your wrist. put in between two sheets of wax paper fire up the good ol'iron and melt it slightly
sew the ends together and wear as a bracelet:)

The purse idea sounds really cute or you could wrap non-stick caution tape around some leather boots that way you can take it off when you want the regular boots back. To make the non-stick tape stay all you would need to do is carefully tape the ends to the boot so that the sticky part doesn't pull off or scratch the leather.
