Tape Embellishments

by admin on June 7, 2011

I went to visit some friends recently and packed some small gifts for our hosts.  Not wanting to have the ribbon crushed in my suitcase, I used washi tape instead-

Washi gift wrap

I wrapped the gifts in a plain paper, then wound one continuous strip of tape around the package- resulting in some interesting angles and designs.  You may remember similar packages from the magazine a couple of years ago-

I was completely inspired for this project by a very cool post I saw on Scout-Holiday-

So fun!  What other crafty tape uses do you have?  There must be dozens.  I love how easy it is- just peel and stick!
