Hello there! Welcome to my turn in the Make and Craft Blog tour which follows a different blogger each day in the run up to the launch of Make and Craft Magazine. I’m super happy to be taking the baton from the wonderful and completely lovely Georgina Giles.
For those of you new to my blog, I’m Claire and I write about crafts, baking and my beautiful home city of Cambridge. You can find some of my DIY craft tutorials here.
I also have an Etsy shop where I sell handmade jewellery and accessories.
Some of you will know one of the things I’m kind of crazy about is tape. As a craft item, I just think it has so many uses! Here is my much loved washi tape collection…..
After searching for different types of tape, I decided to make my own variations and share a tutorial for lace, glitter, paper and fabric versions.
My most recent makes with tape include this super simple washi tape notebook – what do you think?
So, let’s get to this giveaway and the reason I’ve been nattering away about tape! This fun book Tape It & Make It, 101 Craft Adventures With Duct Tape by Richela Fabian Morgan is available for one of you! A free craft book, what could be better?!
(£9.99, published by Search Press, ISBN 978-1-84448-912-1)
I have to say, I’ve never thought of using duct tape to make things. We have a roll in the ‘man drawer’ at home for temporarily fixing things, but it rarely gets used. This book features great projects; everything from coin purses to neckties, from mini animals to large “megativities” for the super adventurous. Such creative ideas! The author Richela, is an eco-friendly crafter who also writes a blog about do-it-yourself crafts. She is super lovely so please check out her site!
