Make It - Deco Tape Ideas

...........I love using deco tape to decorate items in my craft studio here are just a few things I have made......

I have purchased most of my deco tapes from diaso I love this shop everything is $2.80AUD so here a a few pics of my recent purchases...

This tape has cats, bird cages, balloons, balls of yarn
and arm chairs on it a real cute french theme
This one is a lace tape with love heart and flower cut outs this one tends to go a bit see through so not so good for putting on dark colours
Japanese fabric tape I might use this one for some book binding great to put down the spine of your books before binding

 Japanese cheery blossom paper tape, this one can be torn and you can use punch stamps to make your own stickers 

Here I have used the lace deco tape around a coffee jar
Around a tea light glass holder

 and around a wood pencil

Make It- Kawaii Wooden Ruler

This is a very quick tutorial on how to make a plain wooden ruler into a very cute ruler......

- Wooden Ruler
- Fabric Glue
- Ribbon/lace
- Nail polish remover (only if your ribbon is see through)

Step 1 

Cut your ribbon to the length of your ruler

Step 2

 If your ruler has any text or brand on it and you are using ribbon or lace that you can see through do this step..... Using nail polish remover (I used the wipes) rub off the text/brand this might take some rubbing... you could also use some sand paper to rub it back....
Step 3

Put some fabric glue down the length of your ruler then
stick down the ribbon clean up any glue that comes out the sides....let it dry and now you have a cute ruler to add
to your stationary collection
