Fun ideas with tape!

Categories   DIY Projects

We constantly see new, fun ideas around the webs using washi masking tape. The cute colors and patterns are so inspiring and the fact that it’s tape makes it so easy to apply to any project! Here’s a little sample of what we’ve seen around recently:

It makes a great addition to invites and paper projects, you can use it for garland and bits of colorful detail, or wrap bottles or votives or even boxes.

You can buy Japanese masking tape in loads and loads of places, like Etsy, Happy Tape, and Uncommon Goods. And the manufacturer MT has a great gallery full of more projects on their site.

And there’s always different kinds of tape too, like that neat coppery mylar stuff similar to the tape that Peggy used to tie up a box. We also found this super cool neon highlighter tape and pretty crepe paper tape. Both could be awesome for a project.

Those business cards with the tape on them are my favorite! I love when each card is a bit different - saving this idea for later:)

I'm ordering the washi tape garland from paperklipdesigns you linked to via Poppytalk. Am I dense? I can't locate the wine bottle idea, went to the blog in question (All The Mountains, I think?), but I don't see it. Please help! Thanks

Raquel, I think All the Mountains must have taken it off their website! darn!

Dear, I am Grace from SOMITAPE CO,.LTD(CHINA). My factory has produced Japanese washi tape. We can print any designs. I promise it is our product indeed, not agent. So the price is very good for you. The most important is that our price is much cheaper than MT(JAPAN), and the quality is same as MT. If any we can help, please contact me by this email . thank you very much. regards Grace

You can see laser light and the wavelength is much steohrr, so precision is higher Most work on timing the echo. Limited by speed of sound, which can vary depending on temperature and timing circuitry. Speed of light less sensitive to changing air. lasers can see much smaller objects because lambda is smaller.
