Great minds think alike....

Deb, from Mountain Breaths, sent me a photo from MacKenzie-Childs.  It was of a piece of holly, some of the leaves covered in Courtly Checks.  I suggested we go to the Dollar Store and duplicate this with Checked Duct Tape.  She was one step ahead of me and had already bought some holly!

Here's how mine turned out:

I also covered the leaves of a pick...

...and trimmed the edges with glitter glue:

I added a bow and it was the perfect gift box decoration!

  1. Well, you know I love this, Patti! Is there nothing that doesn't look good with checks! : )

  2. Such a pretty project Patti! You are so creative! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Angie xo

  3. Cute idea! I guess I need to go buy some duck tape. ;-)

  4. Wait a minute....hold on...what??!?!?! This is TOO COOL!!! I am....what???!?!?! This is just shockingly cool!!! What a great idea! This is something I NEVER would have thought of in a billion years! You and Debbie...two peas in a pod! I just recently saw designer duct tape in patterns. This kind of thing never crossed my mind, though!!! The most creative thing I've ever done is covered all of MY tools with bright PINK duct tape so my husband would be less likely to "borrow" them!!! Don't works!!! :-) Thanks for stopping by my place earlier! Take care!!!
