Ooh, I did that once.  Didn't have any butterfly bandages, and the slice
was on the pad of my thumb so they probably wouldn't have held anyhow so
I washed it out good with soap and water, dumped betadine in it, dried
it as well as I could then superglued it shut.  An extra set of hands
would have been helpful.  As it was, I nearly glued my finger to my
thumb in the process, but it held the wound closed just fine.  Burned
like heck, though.

Oww!

Never did like the Exacto knife series. If it's the sort I'm thinking of,
they have round handles which never seems as precise or controllable as a
flat scalpel handle, which is much my prefered craft knife.

Or else Super Glue, which is used to close some surgical sites where
there is not a lot of tension on the wound.

Hmmph.  When I have a wound, I have great tension.

That stuff really *stings*, unless you're under general
anesthesia.

When I got whapped in the face with a diving float, the camp nurse
didn't have any butterfly bandages, so she snipped a strip of adhesive
tape a third of the way across in four places and folded the flaps in
to make a butterfly.  

Trouble is, modern first-aid kits no longer contain adhesive tape.  I
don't think porous tape would work for this.  (The twisting trick
mentioned later in the thread probably would, though.)

Poor nurse!  I'd just crawled out of the lake when I went to see her,
so I was dripping.  Unbeknownst to me, what was dripping off me was
*red*!   Nearly scared her out of a year's growth before she found out
it was nearly all water, and the cut was only a quarter inch long.
