I had SO much fun being a guest designer for ScrapbookSteals. I had never used Fabric Tape, and Love My Tapes' Fabric Tape was wonderful!
For this first card, I used the Fabric Tape instead of ribbon. It seriously is so easy to use!!
After making a really simple card, I then decided to try my hand at weaving the Fabric Tape. Because it is sticky, it was easy to create the pattern. To make it all meet, I kept the paper lengths longer until it was time to cut the edges clean.

I love a pretty Moleskine notebook. This one was super fun to cover the seam in the notebook. To make the Fabric Tape stay longer, I ran it over the edges of the notebook. LOVE THIS!!
And my last card, an adorable Christmas card. The trees are simple half circles, that have Fabric Tape on one side. Then, they are folded into thirds and adhered to the paper. There is also a top and bottom border using the tape as well. 

I really loved using Love My Tapes Fabric Tape. It was super easy to create projects with, and cannot wait to snag a few more patterns and colors to add to my collection. If you want to purchase Love My Tapes Fabric Tape, make sure that you head over to ScrapbookSteals.com to pick some up today. SS has a steal each day at 9 AM and 9 PM MST.

  26. I love the ideas here! Just one question, how does the fabric tape differ from Washi Tape?

    ReplyDelete

    1. The fabric tape is a little thicker, and far sturdier than washi. Since washi is a thin paper tape, it rips very easily. The fabric tape needs to be cut. It's also a lot easier to make pleats and folds with the fabric tape, since it retains it's shape when bent.

  46. Weaving with tape -- so fun! It's a kind of meta-weaving; since it's fabric tape, the tape itself is already woven... very cool.
