DIY: Make A Duck Tape Valentine! by Jessica Hodges
Word on the street is…Shoplet + Duck Brand are hosting a Duck Tape Valentine Making Contest! And if you post a picture of your heat-felt valentine to Shoplet’s Facebook wall, you’ll be entered to win a $100 Visa gift certificate…but where to begin??
Well, for a little guidance, here’s a short, sweet DIY Duck Tape Valentine tutorial I scraped up at my Shoplet desk! I apologize for the sub-par quality of the images, but hey! At least now you know how to show your true love for someone on Valentine’s Day with a Duck Tape Valentine <3
What You’ll Need
-Your favorite pen
Step 1: Cut a heart out of your scrap paper & stick some strips of colorful Duck Tape to the side you’d like to make pretty
Step 2. Trim the extra Duck Tape off the edges
Step 3. Cut another heart out of your scrap paper that’s just a wee-bit smaller than the Duck Tape covered heart. Center the small heart over the Duck Tape heart
Step 4. With your favorite pen, write a message to someone you care about on the smaller heart!
Because I used penguin patterned Duck Tape, I tried to relate my message to arctic temperatures. Not to mention, February in NYC has been pretty brutal so far, hence: “You keep my heart warm throughout these chilly months…”
Step 5. To keep everything in place, I used Duck Brand HP260 clear packaging tape
Step 6. Again, trim the extra Duck Tape off from around the edges
Step 7. Viola! You can now bestow your love & affection unto that special someone on Valentines Day! (But before you do, make sure to snap a pic of your Duck Tape valentine & post it to our FB wall to win some moola!).
