In this little corner of the world I get lost in creativity; a craft project, an article or just in thought.

Duct Tape Shelf

Look what your creative hands can do with the packaging from a large party package of plates and napkins!

From the moment I unwrapped the Superbowl plate set I knew the packaging was going to be turned into something good. I have seen this type of plate set for other occasions, however these were brought to our home for a Superbowl get together so I am not sure what the price was paid for the plates. The duct tape is about $4 a roll and even less with a coupon from a local craft store! Close to half the roll of tape was used to  make this shelf.
With a roll of duct tape, patience, and a little bit of time this cardboard structure was turned into an awesome shelf that is sturdy and attractive!

Please pardon the clarity of the following pictures. Many photos were taken and believe it or not these were the best ones.
