How to make Valentine's Day canister with Scotch Color and Pattern Duct Tape (and a giveaway for you!)


Scotch Duct Tape Valentines crafts
 I received product samples to review

We just started out on a long break (our school's annual Ski Week/President's Day holiday), and since we've got five whole days, no vacation plans, and a rainy forecast, we'll be doing lots of crafts!  Valentine's Day is coming up, so I've got lots of lovely, flowery crafts on my mind.  You don't need to spend loads on craft materials either -- just grab a couple of rolls of duct tape. There are countless Valentine's Day-themed crafts you can make -- and if you use Scotch Color & Pattern duct tape, the possibilities are even greater. They have a ton of patterns and colors that are perfect for V-Day:  solid pink, solid red, solid black, red lips on black, pink leopard print, rainbow hearts, pink cupcakes, even pink Barbie-themed patterns!  I love them all :)

I received a variety of rolls of Scotch Color & Pattern duct tape to make some Valentine's Day crafts with, so we're all set for our long weekend.  To start with, I made some Valentine's Day canisters in a few different designs to hold Valentine's Day cards, pens, paper clips, or whatever you need to store.  Here's how to make your own:

Duct Tape Valentine's Day canister
You'll need:
  • a can with a resealable lid
  • Scotch Color & Pattern Duct Tape in your favorite Valentine's Day colors and patterns
  • Exacto knife
1) Clean out the inside of the can.

2) Cut strips of duct tape.  Each strip should be long enough to circle the can once.  If you are using light-colored duct tape and your can has lots of designs, each strip should be long enough to circle the can twice.  Use an Exacto knife for the cleanest cut.

3) Wrap a strip of duct tape around the can.  Continue wrapping strips of duct tape around the can until the can is completely covered.

4)  Use an Exacto knife to cut a thin strip out of the middle of the plastic resealable lid.

You can turn your can into storage container for your child's Valentines cards!  Or, you can turn it into a coin bank -- just cut a shorter slit in the lid.

Finally, you can do away with the lid altogether and turn your can into a pretty storage for all your child's pens and pencils!

Speaking of pens and pencils, did you notice the pretty flower pen in the photo above?  I made it using Scotch Color & Pattern Duct Tape!  I followed a great step-by-step tutorial for duct tape rose pens on Instructables; you can find similar instructions (for a rosette hairpiece) on the Scotch Duct Tape project site.

Here's a list of more great Valentine's-themed projects you can create with Scotch Duct Tape.  Don't forget to use pink, red, and Valentine's-themed patterns for an extra-romantic touch!

Duct Tape envelopes -- to put Valentine's Day cards in!
Paisely Power Flower -- make a bunch of these along with the duct tape rose, and present a unique bouquet to your sweetheart!
Rosette Ring -- wear this on your special date!
Pop Art frames -- for that special Valentine's Day photo!
