I am SO excited with how todays project turned out!! I am not huge into family signs and stuff in my décor. But I am not heartless and I DO love my fam (most of the time….) so I thought this project was perfect!
This project is seriously simple.
First things first you need your hand silhouette. Sit in front of a window and hold your hands up. Make sure your camera is focused on your hands and not outside.
Then in your favorite photo editing program increase the contrast and exposure until you have a defined shape. (It does not need to be perfectly black and white!)
Print it out and you are done!
The supplies you need to finish the project are:
Scotch Colors Duct Tape (there are 26 colors and patterns so pretty much you will find something you love!!)
Razor Blade (Exacto Knife)
Lay your Scotch Colors out slightly overlapping on a piece of wax paper (you are essentially making a big sticker).
Position your silhouette so that it is centered and secure it with a piece of tape so it doesn’t shift with your cutting mat underneath.
Use your exacto knife to cut along the edges of your image. Fill in the spots that are too bright (like the back of my hands)
I used foam core to make the center “box”. You can use a piece of wood, or basically anything you have on hand.
Wrap it with your Duct Tape to cover, slightly overlapping. I love the textural stripes that it adds.
Then put your heart silhouette on and attach it to the back of your frame.
Seriously easy right?!!
I think that Dylan’s is my fave (it’s the blue and pink one). She was trying SO hard to make a heart.
And just so you can see how easy the process is I made a video! (My college BFF is the artist in the song, if you want more info about Lyndy you can check her out here!)

I have teamed up with Scotch to show some unique uses for their line of Duct Tape. The project idea and opinions expressed are 1000% Mandilicious.
