Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!

My first view of duct tape crafts. Haven't really been interested but this was fun to watch!

I enjoyed seeing how you can piece the duct tape to be cut in a die cutting machine or the cricut. With so many cool patterns of duct tape, the possibilities are endless. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

We love Duct Tape ! Love all your episodes, Lori !

You made the roses look easy and I think I'm going to try making a pen-- makes it harder for it to "walk away". We've made others with silk flowers, metallic streamers etc.

Also love the lanyard and I know my DD will want to make one of those cause she's been needing one for her keys (just turned 16) and one of her friends gave her a roll of ink splot tape for her birthday !

I love the idea of using my Cricut and Cuddlebug with Duct Tape. Anytime I can find another use for my expensive toys, I am happy. The notebook looks great, so I'll be trying it. When I win the prize package you're giving today, I will make a zoo album to display all of my animal photos.

I have used Duct tape for mini-album binding, so have many rolls on hand. Thanks for inspiring me to use them in such fun ways. Cutting designs with my cricut was my favorite "gotta try" moment

Last night my husband mentioned he wants a lanyard for his cell phone, so I'm going to check out the duct tape how to for that. But what grabbed my attention the most during today's episode was that you used your Silhouette to cut your name out of duct tape. I'm always looking for inspiration for different ways to use my Silhouette.

I love your show. Thanks for sharing!
