DIY Instant Photo Frames using Duck Tape

I’m so excited! I made my very first Duck Tape® creation!

I bet everyone who creates something with Duck Tape® gets excited!

I’m not sure if it’s because of the great collection of Duck Tape® patterns and colors or it’s because of how easy it is to create stuff with it?! What do you think?

DIY Instant Photo Frames and Instant Photo Magnets

I went to Walmart a few weeks ago, I was in the paint section of the store when I noticed the Duck Tape® section!

I was amazed with the selection of different designs ranging from Spring/Easter designs, Retro designs to Paw prints for animals lovers! Of course they also have bright-colored Duck Tape® too.

They have something for everyone! PLUS I find it very inexpensive, which makes it a crafting material that you can be used anytime.

I love that you can use it to decorate, create and instantly give something a little pizzazz!

I love these. Weare going on a cruise soon, and I decorated our luggage with Duck tape and permanent markers. So far so good. They sure saved us a headache when the luggage tag for torn off last cruise when we got to the cruise terminal. Duck tape is my new "go to" craft item.

Oh my gosh! Duck Tape hasn't' really come over to the UK yet, but when I'm out in the US this summer I'm filling up my boots with a stash of it! What a super cute idea - love these! xoxo
