I can believe how long it has been since my last post! I have just been so busy with school work! Well I have good news for you today. I have two large sleuth kits and only one mini sleuth kit left in stock.
These are a perfect gift for any detective or Nancy Drew fan during holidays! Whew, I know if I got this package as a gift when I was younger I would have been busy for quite a while!
Well, to sum it all up,this offer begins today, November 1st 2013, and ends December 31st 2013.
Hello! Today I just want to show you a couple of duct tape wallets I have been working on recently. I just changed to a small cross body bag that is a little better for the fall season than the bright colored purse I used this summer, andI needed a wallet that was sma michael kors australia ller than my current wallet to fit into the new purse. So, instead of going to the store and buying a new wallet, I dug deep into my (almost) never ending supply of duct tape and picked out a cute paisley pattern that I actually used for one of the sleuth kits that is for sale. However I did not want the regular wallet that I normally ma michael kors australia ke that opens horizontally, and I wanted one that I could separate my different bills. I came up with a new design, and I quickly snapped a few pics before wrapping the second wallet to be given as a gift. It is almost a mix between an envelope and a clutch. Many people ask do you make the sleuth kits? Well I can put a step by step tutorial on how to make the Nancy Drew sleuth kits because it is a very detailed process, but I decided to give everyone a few tips to remember if they choose to make a duct tape craft of their own. Who knows, after getting the hang of things you may be able to make a sleuth kit of your own!
Small or medium cutting boards are easy tools to find in the kitchen that can be used for duct tape projects. They prove handy because they are easy to store and transport, and most of all they protect the surface under the duct tape from being sliced along with the tape!
Many people may use either a pair of scissors or their teeth to tear the tape. I do not recommend either of these methods for a few reasons. Personally, I don like using scissors because the tape tends to stick to the blades, which sometimes make it harder to cut a perfectly straight line. A second reason I do not use scissors is because the blades quickly get gummy or sticky.
An X acto knife is my personal favorite for cutting duct tape. They can be purchased easily at a craft store or hardware s michael kors australia tore for a fairly decent price, and can last a very long time. One can place the duct tape on the cutting board, then cut it with the X acto knife, without worrying about cutting the table underneath.
Finding a good work space is a very important part of ductagami, just like it is for any other art form. Make sure that you have enough room to stay organized, and also give yourself enough elbow room. You need enough room to unroll long lengths of duct tape without knocking over a tower of duct tape rolls with your elbow!
This doesn necessarily mean that every single thing must be perfect, but you don want to rush through a project just to see that your wallet just looks like a wrinkled piece of tape with some money inside. Especially on your first time doing a project make sure to focus, cut clean lines, and remember that it may take a little while before you get the hang of things.
It may seem cheesy, or way too obvious, but it isimportant to remember that ductagami is all about having fun! Sometimes hard projects can go a little rough at times, but remember to keep trying and it will get better and better! And always keep your creativity flowing!The possibilities with duct tape is endless!
OK, recently I found a wonderful picture of banana cream cheesecake on Pinterest. Supposedly, it tastes almost exactly like the banana cream cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. Reading the ingredients, I almost couldn help licking my lips. What I also couldn help was thinking could make that! Well, I followed through and bought all of the ingredients and the springfor michael kors australia m pan don forget that! It turned out even better than I had thought! I only wish that I could have pureed the banana to make the batter more smooth. But, I almost liked the little chunks of banana I would get in each bite. It really depends on which consistency you prefer. My family quickly gobbled it up, and I don blame them! After making this cheesecake I searched Pinterest for any more fantastic cheesecake recipes. Any suggestions? Leave them in the comments below!
Hello! Today I just have a little bonus post to show you a cute little project I did this week. I was making yet another DIY tank top(for a little friend of mine) and, as always, I felt that it was a waste throwing both sleeves away after cutting them off. I decided to try to make a bracelet or two out of them. At first I didn think that I would have enough material for making a bracelet, but I soon found out that I had more than enough! I got about three bracelets out of both sleeves combined. I made fishtail bracelets, but if I would have done just a simple braid I probably could have gotten more bracelets out of it. Here are a few pics of the finished product:
