During the hike along Peru's Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu, our crew wouldn't have made it without the obnoxiously patterned duck tape I brought along. At first it was to do things like cinch down extra straps on our backpacks (yes, it was useful before we even took off), but eventually we built an entire shoe out of it.
There's probably not enough space or need for an entire roll, so get a toilet paper roll, cut it down to the width of your tape and then wrap it around a bunch of times. This roll can get pushed flat or be used to keep your toothpaste from getting crushed. Wrap it around the handle of your selfie stick. Get creative - the tape sticks to itself but can be peeled away when you are ready to use it!
Maybe these examples will inspire you to pack your own spool of obnoxiously colored tape:
