Duck Tape clutch

shown with flap open
I found this cute idea for a duck tape clutch on Pinterest.  She has a very easy to follow tutorial.  I love the simplicity and wanted something small to carry any necessities without running around with a purse.  All you need is a sheet of felt, a roll of duck tape, a velcro closure, and about 15 minutes.  I found the anchor and Mickey tapes at Michaels.  I added a vinyl Mickey from some scraps and my icon punch.
How cute would these be for kids to make for their friends or fun fish extender gifts for the next Disney Cruise? Thanks for looking!  April

Breast Cancer Magnet

My fifteen year old is playing high school lacrosse and it was announced that one of the moms has cancer.  The girls are all banding together to support the family by wearing pink ribbon socks for the season, while the mom undergoes treatment.  We wanted to contribute so my daughter and I made the girls magnets for their lockers.  
We used pale pink cardstock, cut with feminine graphic tee die-namics from My Favorite Things.  We then used the coordinating stamp set to stamp the ribbon in Pink Pirouette, and "Fight Like a Girl" in Smoky Slate.  We added a strip of magnetic tape and done.  In less than an hour, we had 45 magnets ready to go.  Thaks for looking!  April
