|Oh yeah! You got a pair you wanna do this to now, right?! But before you do.... beware of my another friend of mine who tried this, Cara from the Sheet Boutique.... here's what she had to say:|
" I did one boot and it looked awesome. I was so excited and had myself psyched up to take a fashion risk and actually wear them. Then I tried to put it on and it didn't fit. I couldn't get my foot in the boot so apparently the tape had pulled the fabric in tighter in the front of the foot (around the top where you shin meets your foot). I made a cut there and retaped and was then able to pull the boot on. But at that point, the top layer of fabric pulled away from the zipper at the back. It was a mess."
Anyways, maybe we should have duct tape link up party sometime, what do you all have to say about that?! Are there enough people out there doing awesome things with duck tape?! (Urg, I never know if I should spell it "duct" or "duck". Seems like the stores don't either, I looked!

Before and After BOOTS by Shelley!
You know what's on my chistmas list? Well among about 89 other things, patterned duct tape!!! I first saw a "duct tape repurpose" from my sassy sister, Trista Shutt. Okay, not my blood sister, but I'm sure we're cousins way down the line somewhere.... like ancestors of the vikings or something. She remade a purse and you can see it HERE if you happened to miss it *gasp*. THEN... Brittany from Crafty Mischief linked up the little shoes she duck taped up to my Trash 2 Treasure Tuesday party and my pal Shelley (who lives south of the border and I'm not sure why boots are in her daughter's possession) saw them and got inspired to take the idea and run with it! Okay, before you tell me how cold it can be in Mexico Senora Whals, I admit - I'm guilty of packing boots in my suitcase when we vacation there!! Here's the before. Pretty rough, eh?
