I found this awesome little suitcase on my last trip to the thrift store. By thrift store standards, it was abit pricey at $6.95. but I just knew my daughter would love a little case all her own for playd date supplies and sleep overs.
She certainly was not going to use it in it's original state though!
I started by covering all of the green parts with white tape. Then, I added the pink and black stripes. I used an exacto knife to trim around the metal edging and get clean lines. Next, I used the thin silver to cover up the metal edging details on the case. I warapped the handle with black, but it still neeed something....a flower!
I tore off 3 inch pieces of the wide tape and folded it ontop of itself to creat thinner pieces with no adhesive showing. Then I went to work building the flower.
I just went round and round adding pieces as needed and hot gluing them directly onto the case. it is so ultra crazy girlie and it is her new favorite thing.
Let's not forget how UGLY this was to start with. It took a few rolls of tape and a coule of hours to completely transform it into a little girl's dream.
The versatility of Duck Tape® is amazing. I used it to create spooky pumpkin last fall. You can find Duck Tape here. I also follow them on Pinterest, on Facebook, and on Twitter for new ideas and inspirations! What is your favorite Duck Tape project? If you haven't used it yet, you just HAVE to give it a try!
