craft | japanese tape garland
hello, hello! i really like the japanese masking tape that is so popular, but kind of treat it like a precious commodity and save it. until i figured i could make some garlands using linen card stock and two coordinating tapes.
apply the tape to your paper side by side and punch or cut-out your shape - i've used butterflies. then, glue two or more layers together with your string in the middle. i also add some butterflies to small clothespins for display of the garland. the possibilities for patterns are endless and these stripes remind me of candy stripers (do they still exist?) and the polka dots of candy buttons.
i'll share one more idea for the masking tape on saturday, but here's a hint. hope you're having a good week!
ps i just heard teddy thompson interviewed on npr and i love his new song looking for a girl. he's from england, but definitely has a country twang.
