I did it!

That's right!  I did it!  Did what you might ask?  I used that fancy duct tape to make bulletin board letters using the die cut machine.  (and I didn't even see it on Pinterest...though it probably is).

Anyway, I even impressed the super-crafty Pinteresty teacher at my school.  So you KNOW its an awesome idea.

So what I did was cover 5x7 size index cards with my fancy duct tape (pictured below).  It takes two strips of tape to cover the card lengthwise (you don't want a billion little short strips!).  I took the time to line up the colored zigzags, because it would bother me that they were off.

Then, I marched my happy self down to the workroom and cut out letters on the dye-cut machine.

Below is the finished product. 

It really wasn't hard and it makes for so much cuter letters than plain construction paper!

  3. And more durable, too! Of course, the workroom aids at my old school would have freaked if I used something other than paper in the machine ...
