I wanted to create a layout using duck tape as part of my background. There would be paper separating my picture from the the duck tape...wasn't sure if anyone has done this before or if I shouldn't risk it and try something different.


Thank You!!

I've used duct tape on layouts before.

Go for it!

That's great news!! I could not find anything online. Except an old post on had told that lady not to do it. It would ruin her whole album and that the tape would get gooey.

I know its not acid free but I thought that since the tape would not be on my picture I would be ok.

Thanks ladies!

I use all kind of things on my layouts. Duct tape being one of them. I don't fret over the whole "acid free/lignin free" thing. I scrapbook, document and have fun. Is everything we really buy really "acid free". Hah! I think not. That's like bottled water. Is it really spring water, probably not. Go for it and have fun.

I've never even thought of using Duck tape on my layouts, but on a side note, I have to mention I was in Walmart the other day, came around the corner and spotted a whole rack of Duck tape in all kinds of colors and patterns. Who knew? Not me. Guess I've been living under a rock...

Well I am scraping about a car i had and we had to use duck tape to hold the bumper on my friend suggested it and I thought it would be the perfect touch to the layout. It has such great texture too.

I totally agree with is bottled water really spring water, LOL!!

I have also seen those duck tapes with all the fun designs so many great options.

If you are really worried about you could place the tape of a of copy paper and scan & print it on to plain white cardstock. I've done that for a lo it turned out real cool.

Here is the layout - I made a banner of the printed out. Mustache Duct Tape Duct Tape

I saw rolls of duct tape at the Dollar Tree that were the same width as washi tape! It was on a dispenser just like scotch tape is!

The Duck brand duct tape company is local to me. I was just at their Duck Tape Festival over Father's Day weekend (awesome!) and they even had somebody set up demoing Duck Tape with the cricut. She was using the sheets with the backing still attached and used the multi-cut feature. I asked about the actual rolls and she said to put it on waxed paper first, then stick that to your mat because the Duck tape is way too sticky to peel off otherwise. Good luck with your project. Sounds fun!

I've cut duct tape with my cricut before. Not even sure I used multi-cut option. It worked really well. Just a word of caution, though: don't leave it on the wax paper for any length of time. About 5 years ago I cut lettering for a sports banner but waited a few days between cutting and applying them to my project and those suckers WOULD NOT come off the wax paper!! I had to cut them all over again.
