Duct Tape Beads

Bead

Hi everyone! Today we’re going to make duct tape beads! I decided to try another image tutorial- it’s not perfect but I’m still learning, so “stick” with me. I found an awesome site for info graphics and image editing called Picmonkey, so get ready to see some nice images in future posts! Now, to the project. Please note that this craft requires the use of an Exacto knife, and although kids can wrap and string the beads by themselves, they should not be allowed to handle the sharp knife.

Updates, Updates…

New Tape

So. Updates, updates. Let’s start with the design. As you can see, Duct Tape Doodles has a new theme (again). I really wanted a theme with a sidebar, and I just could NOT make the sidebar appear in my old theme, Blissful Blog. So now, here’s the new theme: Matala. And the second update- I GOT NEW DUCT TAPE!!! The two colors of tape I bought are called Leopard and Electric. I’m excited to make some news tutorials with them!
