Duct Tape Crafts – Die Cut Use #2

The long awaited use #2 for Scalloped Circle Duct Tape Die Cuts is here.  This is a great way to give a special personalized gift for someone.  I love to journal and I love duct tape crafts.  I also love to give journals as a gift.  They come in all kinds of cool colors, designs, and styles.  The perfect gift for that perfect someone.  Now, with a simple sticky on duct tape die cut, in the color of your choice (zebra perhaps), your store bought journal gift can look like it was made just for the recipient.  Add a little rhinestone initial (you know I’m a fan of the bling) and it becomes a sparkly elegant gift to love everyday!

Die Cut – Name That Shape


I love this… but what the heck do you call it??  How would you describe this shape… is it filigree… scroll… or that swirly thingy (the official technical term)?

I’ve recently added DUCT TAPE DIE CUT shapes to my Etsy shop so that everyone can take crafting to their own level.  I’d love to see what you come up with.  With all the new cell phone cases and electronic devices, of course we all want to personalize our stuff to make it more of our own and to express who we are!  What better way to do that than with super-durable-comes-in-every-color DUCT TAPE!!


Tell me your ideas and what you would like to decorate with this frilly die cut… and gosh darnit, tell me what the dang nabbit to call it!!!! 🙂

Duct Tape Crafts Die Cut Use #1


Challenge Accepted!!!  I am challenging myself to find 101 uses for my Scalloped Circle Duct Tape Die Cuts!  Here is Use #1!

SO, I DROPPED my brand new cell phone!  Grrrr!  I was on my way to the splash pad with the twins and my perfectly new cell phone fell out of the stroller!  Sadly, but thankfully, only the back cracked and shattered.  I think I’ve been leaving little bits of plastic shards all over the place.  I tried to replace it with our warranty, but the phone is so new it is apparently on back order.


SO, handy dandy crafty girl to the rescue!  I simply attached one of my easy-to-peel-off precisely cut scalloped circle die cuts in gorgeously teal duct tape to the back of my phone, directly over the worst part of the cracked plastic… and TA DA… cell phone fixed!  At least for the time being until my phone is no longer on back order… And it even looks pretty and makes me happy too!  Every girl should wake up to a little bling rhinestone initial on her cell phone!!
