Here’s another challenge, what would you make using The Duck Brand® Duct Tape, VELCRO® fasteners and Westcott Brand® Cutting Tools? In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Westcott has sponsored this fun pink filled creative challenge while also joining forces with CharityWings.com to host an auction of some of the design creations from this challenge. Read below to find out how to enter a giveaway of some of the fabulous pink Westcott Brand® Cutting Tools!
I was sent products from all 3 companies to use and make whatever I wanted. It took a bit of brainstorming, but once I got going, I couldn’t stop!
I’ve seen a ton of duct tape creations over the years, but now there are tons of fun and colorful patterns to choose from instead of the standard gray I grew up with. I received The Duck Brand® Patterned Duct Tape Rolls in a metallic gold, hot pink, hot pink and black tiger/zebra stripe and super cute hot pink Hello Kitty tape. I also received VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Hook and Loop Fasteners in black, white and pink along with great collection of Westcott Brand® Cutting Tools (all in pink!) including, a cutting mat and craft knife (more about that later).
My preschooler LOVES Hello Kitty, so I decided I’d make something for her. A sunhat was the first thing that came to mind, so off I went. Unfortunately, I tried making the hat without my daughter nearby the entire time so my measuring was off. I ended up going to the store, buying a whole new roll of tape and starting over! The second hat turned out perfectly.
I also added a little flower to the hat. Originally I was thinking I’d use VELCRO® brand fasteners so the flower could be changed, however the pink VELCRO® Brand Hook and Loop Fasteners I had aren’t ment for super strong holds and I thought the black or white would stand out too much. So I opted for taping the flower in place with more pink tape.
I had so much fun making the hat that I cut down the first hat to make it a little smaller and it now fits my daughter’s 18″ doll. I created a little doll sundress with the remaining tape and used the VELCRO® brand as fasteners on the back of the dress. We now have a second dress in the works made out of the gold.
