Duct Tape Calendar

photo

Hello! I realized today that my blogging schedule has been very disorganized. Sometimes I post every other day, yet other times I go months without posting! In order to change that, I made a little duct tape calendar to help organize myself (it most likely won’t help :P.) You’ll need calendar sheets for this, and there are many websites to print them out. I got mine here. I like that the clip on top of the calendar can be used to hang it up. Here’s the collage:

Calendar collageYou need:

Duct Tape

Calendar Sheets (available here)

Clip

Scissors

Tape Measure

1. Print out your calendar sheets, preferably vertically. I got mine here.

2. Create a duct tape sheet with the dimensions 9 in x 12 in. If you don’t know how to make a duct tape sheet, check out my tutorial.

3. Unfold your clip.

4. Cover your clip with duct tape. I left a bit of it black because I liked the effect.

5. Layer your duct tape sheet on top of your calendar pages, then clip together at the top.

That’s it! Leave any questions in the comments, and have a fantabulous week.

Duct Tape iPad Pouch

photo 1-1

Howdy! I’m excited to show you my latest duct tape craft, a duct tape iPad case! This case is for the iPad 2 and above. You can also add handles to make a basic purse, which I’ll demonstrate in a future tutorial. Just a quick note: this project requires A LOT of tape, so if you don’t have much to spare, I wouldn’t recommend making this.

IPAD COLLAGE

Materials:

Scissors

Tape measure

2 colors of duct tape

1. Create two duct tape sheets with the dimensions of 8.25 in by 10.25 in. If you don’t know how to make duct tape sheets, click here for a tutorial.

2. Tape the sheets together on the sides and bottom (obviously not the top).

3. Turn the case inside out.

4. Repeat step 2.

5. And you’re done! Make sure you’ve done step 3, as this will prevent the iPad from sticking to the case.

*THIS CASE IS FOR DECORATION ONLY AND WILL NOT PROTECT YOUR IPAD FROM FALLS*

That’s all for now! I’ll show you how to add handles to make a purse soon. Remember to follow (on WordPress or Bloglovin’), share, like, and comment!

Back to School: Decorate an Old Binder with Duct Tape

ImageHello everyone! Recently I met with J from Two Peas in a Pod Crafts to create this binder in the spirit of back to school! It was great to recycle this binder and give it a new look! We tested out paint sharpies on the duct tape and it turned out great! It was a ton of fun and we wanted to share our little project with you.

Image

You Need:

An old binder

Duct tape

Sharpie paint markers

1. Cover both the front and back sides of the binder in duct tape. Make sure to do it neatly! You may need to trim the tape a bit. If you want, you can also cover the inside.

2. Trim off any excess tape.

3. Cover the spine in tape. Trim any excess material

4. DECORATE!!!! It was a blast creating the designs with different colored paint sharpies.

And you’re done! Remember to follow Duct Tape Doodles on bloglovin’, and check out S and J’s blog at twopeasinapodcrafts.wordpress.com. Cheers!

Duct Tape American Girl Doll Apron!

photo 3-1

Long time no see! Sorry it’s been awhile. I actually went on vacation, which I apologize for not mentioning in advance. I didn’t want someone to stalk me, find my address, and then rob my house or something. Anyway, this is a cute project I made for a relative’s American Girl Doll. It was very easy to create, and she loved it! I apologize for the terrible image quality, as I took these photos with my slightly old iPod.

Apron Collage

You need:

Duct tape

Scissors

1. Create two duct tape sheets. One should be 8 3/4 in by 3 1/2 in, and the other should be 3 1/2 in by 3 1/2 in. If you don’t know how to make a duct tape sheet, click here for a tutorial.

2. Holding the larger sheet horizontally, attach the smaller sheet at the middle of the top edge, as shown in the picture.

3. Cut two pieces of duct tape that are each 11 in long. Tear them each in half the long way, creating 4 halves. Fold each half in half, sticky side to sticky side, the “hot dog way” (in other words, lay each half horizontally, and fold it in half, top to bottom). You should now have four strings which are no longer sticky (sorry the picture only shows two.)

4. Attach one string to each of the top corners so they’re sticking straight up from the apron.

5. Attach one string to each middle corner. These are the corners at the top of what was once the largest duct tape sheet. Make sure they stick out to the side.

Put in on your doll! Felicity here is feeling very happy with her new apron, even though the picture’s a bit grainy.
