Duct Tape Crafts – Die Cut Use #10 Turkey

Duct Tape Turkey

Another unique and elegant use for scallop circle duct tape die cuts… Turkey Place Cards!  I’m always trying to find fun ways to add turkey details to my Thanksgiving table.

I cut the gold scallop circle die cuts into quarters and used them as the tail feathers.  Then I cut a circle out of brown duct tape and a pointed oval shape out of silver duct tape for the head.  What I love about duct tape crafts is how easy they are to peel off and stick anywhere, not to mention the shiny effect for a little glamour in every occasion.

This one might be my favorite.  I cut strips of duct tape into rounded half-ovals and taped them to a paper cone.  It kind of looks like owl feathers.  Very autumny and woodlandy… I love it!

Don’t Forget the Groomsmen Gifts!

I love the idea of giving uniquely personalized GROOMSMEN gifts!  And not just with an initial for their name.  Why not highlight their heritage or support their favorite sports team?  I can do flags, NFL teams, College teams, or any color or pattern you wish (maybe one with a moustache or even bacon on the front!).  They have come up with all kinds of great new duct tape and I’m happy to design one that is as unique as each of your groomsmen.

I’d love to hear what other people have given for their grooms or groomsmen gifts.  I gave my husband a helicopter ornament for our wedding.  He said he wanted to learn how to fly and I told him it was the most dangerous thing ever… but that I would support his dreams no matter what.  Needless to say, he has never taken flying lessons!

How to Make a Duct Tape Wallet


I love to craft!!!  And I know other people love to craft!  I decided to share one of my patterns for the men’s style bifold duct tape wallets so that other crafters could learn how to make a duct tape wallet too.  The best part of crafting is adding your own personalized touches to each project.  That’s what I love most!  This is a clean cut design that helps minimize sticky edges.  In this downloadable PDF, I share my tried and true tips and tricks I have acquired over the years in making this design.  I use scissors only because I have little ones in my house and I don’t like the idea of using razor blades or exact o knives.

Check back in for additional patterns I will be adding soon for my women’s wallets and business card holders.  As always, I love custom orders and would love to dissect any duct tape project and break it down into a pattern for all to enjoy.
