Recycle/Upcycle Blog Hop

Duct tape sure has come a long way!
 Hi there and happy Friday everyone! I have many recycled/upcycled projects that I love and decided to feature this passport I made for my show in the FaveCrafts November blog hop.  If you wouldn't mind clicking on the button below, and then clicking 'like' below my Passport to Recycleville, I  would appreciate it.  Also check out my GF Cyn Gagen's Santa project while you are there!

Inside the passport holder. 3 pockets.
The following items were used to make this project:
Cardboard for base
Fancy duct tape - tie dye and tulip patterns
Aleene's Tacky Glue Stick
Stamp motif gift wrap paper
Foreign currency coins
PdQ chip shapes Love Bug
Index cards for pockets
Maps from Car Map books

Clear tape with a print
You could actually make this entire project without any glue. By using a clear tape with a faint design you can seal all your papers in place and effectively wrap the entire holder.  Just remember when you seal the inside pockets that you do NOT seal the top of the pocket.
Conversely you could just use Liquitex to seal everything in. You would then have to deal with drying time and several coats to seal everything.  In my opinion it's better using the duct tape and much quicker:)
I hope you enjoyed what I made today.
If you did, please let me know. Thank you, Robi
