Stick it to ’em!

March 17th, 2009

I think I just died and went to heaven! Perfectly adorable tape that is not only functional but stunning to boot! I had no idea there was so much variety when it came to packaging tape, there are even blogs and stores dedicated to it! I think my favorite is the Lace Tape. I like that you can take two pieces and put them together to make different patterns, charming!

    I just went to Michaels Arts and Crafts. They had multiple patters of deco-tape for $1 each! I grabbed four. Selection was limited to red and green at my store, but the patterns weren’t definitely Christmas themed!

    I need to share this because when I clicked around the links in this post, some tapes were running about $20. Whoa!
