Silhouette UK: Organise your craft room with custom Duct Tape labels

Hi, good to see you have popped by the blog. I hope you are having a great week so far. Have you ever tried the printable duct tape from Silhouette? Well, I hadn’t before today, but I was quite surprised with it! It printed really well and I found it very easy to peel off. This will certainly be a useful media to use in the future. My idea for today’s project was to organise my craft room more. With these digital machines comes lots of wires which at times can be hard to keep track off. Especially with all your other wires. So I thought why not use the duct tape to create some bright fun custom duct tape labels to keep myself more organised and are easy to apply!

custom duct tape labels process overview

Design your labels in the Silhouette studio window. I used a label from the Chevron Label set by Sarah Hurley in the design store. As I was using the print & cut function for only a few lables, I wanted to reduce the amount of media I would waste. When in the print and cut window, if you select the ‘advanced options’ you will get a drop down of ‘insets’. These have a slider to one side and a typable adjustable box you can input values into. By adjust the bottom slider, this moved the bottom inset, but when moved all the way to the right, the inset wasn’t up high enough on the page to reduce the waste completely. So instead, I typed a number into the box to move the inset further up the page.

Before I sent this to cut, as always I did a test cut. I was very glad I did as the preset settings from the printable duct tape were wrong for my machine. It was set to a force of 20, and after testing I needed to use a force of 5 for the perfect kiss-cut (cutting through the top layer, but not through the backing layer).
