I don't think it's any secret that I love Pinterest...
it is a wealth of inspiration.

like this particular pin that I found and then repinned...

very cool.
Although I loved the idea, and the tape may well be worth the 7.00 price tag
that is just more than I can pay for tape.

I thought to myself, 
"self, doesn't that look like first aid tape?"

So, yesterday while grocery shopping, I perused the first aid aisle

now mind you, this is not eco cotton tape, which of course I would love to use, 
but it was only 3.50 for two rolls.  So I will make it work.

and the whole idea of stamping on it is fun and easy!

You know me, easy peasy is my middle name.
yup, Theresa Easy Peasy Hein ~

kinda sad that it only pertains to crafting ;)


As you well know, one thing leads to another and let's just say
that the ideas were churning!

I know, I know, Theresa Easy Peasy Hein,
it is TOO early for Christmas!

but I just couldn't stop myself!

this one is actually made with the paper version of first aid tape
I bought both the cloth and the paper tapes.  
Both are fun to use!

oh wait, I'm not done yet...

o.k. now I'm done!

(for today anyway, this laundry isn't going to wash itself you know!)

The paper tape doesn't have the bit of sheen that the cloth tape does,
but the cloth tape has the tiny ridges on the edges.
love them both.

So thank you pinterest for the inspiration!

  4. just a quik could cut ANY fabric to tape size and spray with fabric adhesive...

  5. Theresa... that is AWESOME!!!!! Do you think it would work in lieu of that "japanese tape" (i think that's what it's called) that people are hanging pictures on the wall with? snapshots...

  13. What a great idea! I love your creativity..
    I completely understand your pinterest love...sooooo addicting.....Trying to curb my time on there..LOL

  14. Theresa it is never too early to think about Christmas!!! I love that you found a less expensive way to get the look! That is what I love to see because I have to do the same thing all the time. I can't afford expensive craft supplies so I have to look around and see what less costly things might work instead. It's nice to know I am not alone in being frugal. Thanks for sharing this great idea!

  15. I love your idea, Theresa! You could also re-cut the edges with fancy pinking shears (I have some that make scallops).
