Duct Tape Pen Pouch

Duct Tape Pen Pouch

Hola! Today’s craft is a duct tape pen pouch, made out of a regular snack bag. You can also use this pouch to store other supplies, like scissors or washi tape. I’m not including a collage, because I think the craft is mostly self-explanatory; however, if you are confused about any steps, fell free to ask any questions in the comments section.

Materials:

Duct tape

Plastic snack bag

Scissors

1. Cover the bag in duct tape below the zipper.

2. Trim the edges. Don’t cut too close to the bag; it is better to have duct tape hanging evenly off the side than to cut the bag open.

Have a great day 🙂

Washi Tape Garland

washi tape garland

Hey everyone! Today’s craft is a super cute washi tape garland! These garlands are highly popular on Pinterest, so I decided to try them out. The craft is simple and quick, but is a great way to decorate walls, bulletin boards, birthday cards, and so much more. Here’s my tutorial:

Materials:

Washi tape

Twine

Scissors

1. Wrap equally spaced pieces of tape around the twine.

2. Trim the tape pieces to your desired size and shape. To make sure all of my flags looked the same, I cut one piece to the correct shape, then placed it over the other flags so I could “trace” with scissors.

3. Hang your garland! I hung my garland with washi tape, but you could also use pushpins on a bulletin board.

That’s all!

Duct Tape Felt-Lined Kindle Case

Felt Kindle Case

Hey Doodlers!

I’ve made a couple kindle cases already, and both posts are consistently popular on Duct Tape Doodles. Today, I decided to create an updated case, which contains a felt lining. The lining offers more protection than duct tape on its own, and also lets the kindle slide in and out more smoothly. Still, only rely on this case for minor falls and scratches. Though I made this case for my kindle fire (first generation), the measurements can be adjusted to fit e-readers of various sizes. Here’s the tutorial (Sorry about the gloomy editing; it’s raining outside.)

Materials:

Felt

Duct tape

Ruler

Scissors

Kindle

1. Cut the felt to the correct size. Mine was 5.5″ by 16,” and I found these dimensions by adding an half inch to the height of my kindle and multiplying by two, and also adding an inch to the width. Depending on the thickness of your kindle, you may need to add more or less.

2. Cover the non-fuzzy side of your felt in duct tape. Trim the ends.

3. Fold the felt in half vertically (also known as the “hamburger” way).

4. Cut two more strips of tape, and fold them over the left and right edges of the case. You’ll need to fold the sides of the case over along with the strips, to prevent any stickiness inside the pouch.

The process is tricky to explain, but I promise the kindle holder is easy to create! Make sure to comment any questions, and I’ll definitely help you out :).

Duct Tape Desk Organizer

 Dut Tape Desk Organizer

Happy spring! I’m so excited to share today’s project, mostly because I’m OBSESSED with my new duct tape! I found the pattern on sale at Office Max last weekend. The design is called “Paisley Princess,” and comes in two colors: pink and purple. The tape is actually Scotch brand, not Duck brand, but I haven’t noticed any major differences between the two companies. I have to say, Paisley Princess is probably the prettiest duct tape I’ve owned. EVER. (Can you tell how excited I am?)

Anyway, I like this desk organizer because it’s affordable to create; I used old toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Here’s how I made it:

Duct Tape Desk Organizer Instructions

Duct Tape Desk Organizer

Materials:

4 toilet paper tubes, cut to different heights

Duct Tape

Cardstock

Mod Podge (please don’t call it “Modge Podge,” or I’ll cry)

Scissors

Paintbrush

1. Cover all of the toilet paper tubes in duct tape. Only cover the sides; don’t tape over the top and bottom.

2. Arrange the toilet paper tubes in a square, and wrap a piece of tape around them to hold them in place.

3. Use the Mod Podge and paintbrush to attach the bottom of your desk organizer to the cardstock, and let dry. Use a lot of Mod Podge! As you can see in the picture, I really piled it up around the edges. My organizer needed to dry overnight.

4. Use scissors to trim around the base of your organizer.

That’s it! The container is super sturdy and convenient, and a great place to keep your Duct Tape Rose Pen or Washi Tape Pencils. Just saying.

I hope everyone has a great week! Make sure to follow Duct Tape Doodles on Pinterest, Bloglovin’ and Google Plus! See you next time 🙂

Easy Washi Tape Clothespins

COVER

Happy February! To celebrate the new month, here are some easy DIY Valentine’s Day clothespins. I like that this craft is very quick but still cute. 🙂

You need:

Red and pink washi tape

Clothespins

X-acto knife

1. Lay a clothespin on a slightly longer piece of washi tape.

step1

2. Trim excess tape.

step2

3. Repeat on the other side of the clothespin.

And that’s it! You can create about 10 clothespins in half an hour. Once you get the hang of making them, it’s hard to stop!

Finally, I’d like to give a shoutout to one of my favorite blogs, Caution District. Asya is a teenage blogger who posts consistently (unlike me) with advice, musings, reviews, and my personal favorite, workouts. I definitely recommend checking out her blog!

Duct Tape Rainbow Fan

(Source: http://dollarstoremom.com/2014/02/make-a-rainbow-fan-from-duct-tape/)

What’s up? I’m super excited to share this duct tape project that I found on Pinterest (Make sure to follow Duct Tape Doodles!) You can check out the tutorial at Dollar Store Mom, where all credit goes (including image credits!) The basic idea is that you take apart an upright fan and cover each blade with a different color of tape. Once you put the fan back together and turn it on, the colors will blend together to create a cool rainbow effect. This craft is especially great during the miserable heat of summer.

Now, I have to give yet ANOTHER apology for my infrequent blog updates. I hope to post more often, especially for the rest of the summer, although this may be difficult as I will be going on vacation soon. I’ll try though! Thank you to all the loyal, patient readers of DTD. If you haven’t yet, follow Duct Tape Doodles on WordPress Reader, Bloglovin’, or even by email for more stick-tacular duct tape crafts!

Washi Tape Greeting Cards

image-3Hello everyone! I’ve done it again… it’s been a VERY long time since I last posted :(. Even though I’ve been busy, I PROMISE I haven’t forgotten about the blog! I’m super excited, because this Christmas Santa brought me this wheel of Washi tape:

image-8I love all the colors and patterns, and I immediately had to try them out. I decided to start with thank-you notes.

Card Collage1. Gather your materials. You need:

2 pieces of heavy card stock (6 in x 10 in and 6 in by 5 in)

A few colors of Washi tape

Double sided tape

2. Fold the larger piece of cardstock in half the “hamburger way.”

3. Lay a strip of Washi tape slightly longer than the width of the card across the front.

4. Fold the ends of the tape over to the inside of the card. Don’t worry, we’ll hide these later.

5 & 6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 in any pattern you choose.

7 & 8. Using double-sided tape, stick the smaller piece of card stock in place inside the card to cover up the folded Washi tape. The inside of the card should now be blank.

And that’s all! Feel free to leave any questions in the comments below. Remember to like, share, comment, and if you haven’t already, follow this blog via WordPress Reader or Bloglovin’!
