Duct Taped Magazine Holders

This week I learned that duct tape is not my favorite medium to work in. I saw this idea in HGTV magazine, but they may have steered me wrong on this one. Seems like a simple project. Cover a magazine holder in duct tape in a cute pattern. Duct tape comes in all sorts of fun colors and patterns these days. I even found a roll the other day with little mustaches on it.

Perhaps my choice to do a chevron pattern to match my recipe binder was a little too adventurous for a duct tape novice like myself. Alas here is the before and after. The only words of advice I can offer on this project is choose a simple pattern, like stripes, and if when your scissors get gummy from cutting the tape you can use a little rubbing alcohol or a little Goo Gone to clean them up.
