Using Cricut Everyday and Duct Tape to decorate my scrap tote


I had decorated my cart for the Los Angeles CHA CC crop with  vinyl.  I liked the way it looked and got a lot of comments (even Jinger saw it and said she wanted to scrap lift me) but by the time I got home the vinyl was peeling off.  :(  I wanted to redo it when Cricut Everyday came out.  This time I cut my MB name and the the cricut logos, etc. from Duck Tape using Cricut Everyday.   The logo on the top right corner is my Cricut Craftin Grammy initials with the circle head.   I redid this as it matches my calling cards.   Michael's has had duct tape in many beautiful colors for awhile but now they have 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of duct tape that you can cut right on your Cricut. The green is perfect for Cricut letters and logos.   It has a backing so its just like cutting vinyl.  I think it will stick much better to the canvas of my scrap tote.  Doesn't my little bug look so cute hanging on my bag?

  3. How clever are you to use duct tape!! I will have to try this because I have had the same problem with iron-on vinyl peeling off. Great idea and fantastic project! Your colors really pop!

  6. Your bag is so cute. Do you use the same settings for the duct tape sheets as you do for the vinyl? I actually bought a couple sheets to experiment with today; thought I would get on line to look for help, and found your site. I'm your newest follower.

  7. This is adorable!! I'm wondering if cutting the duct tape tears up the cricut blade. Did you use a regular blade or the deep cut one (it's blue)?
