Decorative Fashion Tape
The right supplies are crucial for scrapbooking, card making, paper crafting and DIY art projects. Tape is no longer simply an adhesive: there are numerous uses for colorful fashion tape. Also known as decorative tape, paper tape or washi tape, it's used in various crafts as an adhesive and to add colorful patterns. Staples carries paper tape in a wide variety of styles and colors.
Benefits of Fashion Tape Washi tape is a form of paper masking tape similar to washi paper, a traditional crafting paper that offers excellent durability. It's similar to painter's tape but comes in numerous colors and widths. Unlike most adhesive tape, fashion tape is brightly colored, and because there are no paper grains, it also tears easily, making it an excellent choice for crafting projects. Many people enjoy using it as a decorative touch to scrapbooks, cards and other paper crafts. It offers a quick way to add color that doesn't make any mess, unlike paint or markers. Use washi tape to attach papers together or to create layers for projects such as colorful patterned paper flags for party decorations. You can write on it with a marker, pen or pencil.
Creative Uses for Decorative Tape Decorative paper tape is extremely useful for adding colorful art to scrapbook pages and homemade cards. There are countless uses for Scotch washi tape beyond scrapbooking and other paper crafts.
Choose from a range of different widths. Many people enjoy using decorative tape in planners or journals to highlight certain sections, create headings or designate separate categories or topics. You can use decorative paper tape to make labels or decorate household items such as vases, coasters and clothespins. Some people use the tape on computer keyboard keys to add a whimsical look to their work equipment. You can even use washi tape to create art on canvas boards or by applying directly to the walls.
Is Decorative Tape Transparent? Usually this type of tape isn't completely transparent. Some brands offer colors that are opaque whereas others are translucent to a certain extent. There are some pastel colors that are nearly transparent. With some brands, you can choose between a matte and glossy finish. For projects that require writing on the tape, it's smart to choose a matte finish.
Can You Use Fashion Tape on Any Surface? Washi tape adheres to more than just paper. Use it on glass, canvas, wood and even household accessories such as lampshades. Tape can also work on some ceramics and plastics. If you plan to remove the tape at some point, you may want to do an initial test on an inconspicuous area to make sure the adhesive won't damage the surface.
Can Washi Tape Be Repositioned? Most brands of paper tape are removable, and some can be repositioned for a certain length of time after application. The strength of the adhesive bond depends on the tape as well as the surface to which it is affixed. Browse Staples' wide selection to find beautiful fashion tape for your next DIY project.
