Enjoyed Saturday at the Scrapbook Convention and wore my new shabby sheik duck tape necklace and was amazed at the reaction of the people. I got great reviews from it and most knew it was made out of duck tape and paper clips when they looked at it closely. I had one lady wanting me to come to her store and do a class on how to make it. I hope I can work on some new designs this week and see what I can create. Thought I would put a few more pictures of some of the other things I have made. And of course, everything is for sale.

Well, I saw a blog and a lady had posted a picture of a necklace that sold for $168.00, so she decided she would try to make her own and she did it for around $26.00. Well, I only had grey duck tape and picked up a box of paper clips at Walmart for $1.22 and proceeded to make the necklace. It was fun, but time consuming as it took me a few hours to figure out how to do the paper clips and how to cut my duck tape. I made a pattern for the duck tape, cut it with scissors and was on my way to this new creation. I thought that it needed a little more embellishing, so I added some. I really like the way it turned out.Going to wear it at the Scrapbook Convention this saturday in Arlington, so I hope I get reviews on it. Post a comment and tell me what you think. It looks like it is a bronze color but it really is grey with silver and grey black beads.
