Time for a Tape Sneak Peek

I'm getting ready to head off to Studio 5 ( this morning, where I'll be doing a TV segment on the hot tape trend in crafting. For the most part, we'll be discussing Japanese masking tape, the super fun new product to make its way into the creative world. I'm going to save those projects for the show (I'll post them here soon). For now, I want to share a few of my tricks using other types of tape.

Duct Tape Bouquet
I got this idea from the Duck Brand website ( If you haven't visited, you need to check out their imaginative project gallery. You'll find instructions for making your own duct tape blooms.

Decorative Masking Tape
I love this stuff from Fancy That! It's packing tape all styled up. I covered basic juice glasses to make these candle votives.

And I wrapped it around this white letter holder for a fresh new look for my desk.

That's it for now. I'll post my TV projects soon. In the meantime, I'd love to hear what you like to do with tape?

Oh dear more amazing things I cannot get here...I am green!

The funniest thing is that in SA we all call industrial tape 'duct-tape thinking, electronic ducting....not realizing there is a brand actually called Duck-tape.

So funny!

PS: That duck tape wallet featured on their web site is genius!
