Pretty Patterns

     I love wrapping gifts and making cards for friends and family. I just put together a special gift for one of my good friends and I can't wait to give it to her. Lately I've been really into japanese tape (check out this site) and patterned packaging tape. I've seen some packaging tape at JoAnn's, but it was about $5-6 dollars a roll! So expensive compared to the $.60 I paid for each of the two rolls I bought in the clearance at Michael's. They had about five different patterns, all of them super cute. Here's the gift I put together for my friend:
I had to blur out what it said or else she would know that it's for her & what it is!


  1. cute! i love this! i want cute tape! i had some cute masking tape i got at target one christmas. it was gorgeous. hot pink and lime green polka dots. so...that year, in my calculus class, i taped my ENTIRE calculator with that tape. and used it all! and it was the best use for that tape ever! now i have a super cute calc!

    thanks for sharing! i'm going to have to check out michaels to see what other office appliances and things i can vandalize!!
