Tutorial- Duct Tape Mini Album Spine


  1. I just went to my local Staples store, and they now sell duct tape in sheets !! Just cut to size — peel the backing & adhere!!
    I heart duct tape ..!

  2. Kathy this is great idea. I am going to try this. My spines are always so messy, no matter how hard I try to be exact. Plus, there are so many colors of duct tape now.

    Thanks for sharing your marvelous idea!!

  3. Thanks for sharing Kathy will have to try this.

  4. Kathy, I just used a mat from my Cricut, to place the duct tape on to hold it when using my ruler and craft knife to cut it. I put a layer of non stick reynolds wrap around the knife, so the duct tape would not stick to the ruler. The mat holds down the duct tape so it is not sticking to your fingers, there is a grid on it to line up the pieces of tape, and this works great. I can’t make a video about it, but don’t mind if you do! Love to all the PITA’s and to the Queen!

  5. Wow, duct tape in scrapbooking… who knew! LOL This is awesome, Kathy, the possibilities are endless now! Thanks for your creativity!

    thanks Kathy.. i put duct tape between parchment baking paper and cut it in one of the on the edge decorative dies. the tape peels right off the paper. makes for a nice decorative edge.

  7. Kathy, what a timely tutorial. Right now I was trying to figure out how to use the blue duct tape for the binding because I’m making a patriotic mini using the Sweet Nectar tutorial, and I wanted the binding to look patriotic too. Thanks!!

    Kathy, thank you for sharing. I use a small straight pin to hold the duct tape in place while I am folding or piecing. It keeps the tape from moving and keeps me from getting aggravated. Of course, I threw away a lot of tape before figuring out how to keep it in place. Have a great weekend! Konnie
