- We use it like duct tape. It fixes everything, but it lasts longer.Some ideas we’ve seen before are using scrap for wallets, hot pads, patching repairs, sewing practice. We’ve even seen kids put a strip in their mouth so they can pretend they are an elephant. But we won’t tell you how to live your life. You can use it however you want. If you have something cool that you’ve done with our scrap, let us know! We love hearing your unique stories!
