Elegant Glow in the Dark – Stick or Treat

Here it is!!  My entry is in!!  I’ve entered these fun glow in the dark duct tape pumpkins in the Duck Brand Stick or Treat Halloween duct tape crafts contest.  Tell me what you think!

Would you make this for your home?  I used my filigree duct tape die cuts in glow in the dark duct tape (yes, they have that now!).  Duck Brand duct tapes also now come in little duct tape mini rolls that are thinner and easier to work with for more detailed projects.  The glow in the dark comes in the mini roll too.  I used this for my glow in the dark chevron pumpkin, which is kind of my new favorite!

I’m still working on getting a good night picture to show them glowing in the dark.  I think I can get them to glow better if they were in more direct sun, but they are on a north facing entry way that sees a lot of shade throughout the day.  I’d love to hear any suggestions on this!

What would you make with Glow in the Dark duct tape??

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!!
