Making Metallic Looking Paper Rosettes with Duct Tape

On Monday, I posted a card with a metallic looking rosette. Can you believe I made it using duct tape?

Since I made my first video on how to make paper rosettes, I have come up with a couple of new techniques that I would like to share, so I decided to do a video on how to use duct tape and decorative scissors to make the cutest rosettes ever!


I also discovered that duct tape makes the perfect Glubbers. Click here to see my post on how to make Glubbers out of duct tape.

Now that I have all this duct tape, I need to find even more ways to use it. I would love to hear how you all use duct tape!

Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for a fun and easy new project.

Very cool technique. I can't believe that when you are done, the rosette is just made out of duct tape. Thanks for posting this.

Awesome! I just wish I could find the duct tape in anything but silver!
By the way, you can make anything fro duct tape... when my daughter was about nine she made a suit of ARMOR with duct tape! Yep.. she started off with the sword and decided to go with the shield, a helmet, breastplate, leggings and finally shoes! We have one picture of her in it and it was sooooooo funny!
