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’!
