Review | Duck Prism Adhesive Crafting Sheets

The Duck Prism Sheets (Swirl pattern) were a creative challenge that I was excited to try out. I didn’t have a project in mind when I started, but wanted to see what these metallic, adhesive sheets were capable of.Duck Prism Crafting SheetsI had seen Duck brand tape sheets in the craft stores, but these are different than the standard Duck Tape material.  They are thin and metallic, similar to a mylar ballon. Below you can see the thin adhesive sheet and backing (after I started cutting it up).

Duck Prism Crafting SheetsMy first thought was to die cut one of these 8″ x 10″ sheets and make a bunch of snowflakes. It must have been because I had just seen Frozen!

So then of course I had to try using my craft punches on the Duck Prism sheets. The small star punch worked perfectly, but the larger cloud punch got hung up in the clear coating again. Using punches seems to be kind of hit and miss. I would guess that the smaller and simpler shapes would generally work well.

These would be great for adding some extra sparkle to school projects like science fair displays and general crafts or holiday decorations.

PROS:

  • 8″ x 10″ sheet allows you to cut whatever shapes you need for a certain project.
  • Prism metallic material gives lots of shine to your projects.
  • Adhesive was plenty sticky for my banner, using cardstock and craft foam.

CONS:

  • Some craft punches and dies will have trouble cutting through the clear surface film on these sheets.

Duck Prism Sheets retail for $1.99 and are available at your local craft stores.
