Fabric Tape

Today my eyes fell on some left over double sided tape, and a stash of fabrics I had up on the side. I recalled a cute tutorial I saw on Between the Lines about making fabric tape, or 'DIY Japanese Masking Tape' as it was described. Either way it looked pretty simple so I had a go at making a few rolls.

I made a flowery one...

... a stripey one...

...and a colourful patterned one...

As it turns out it IS simple to make and a pretty addition to any wrapping!


  1. This is so cool! Bizarrely I instructed the mr to bring home a roll of double sided tape yesterday as I had a notion to cover some headbands......Hhhmmm...may well make some pretty washi style tape now. Great for using up scraps. x

  2. Super cute - I must try it. I had been thinking of getting some washi tape - thanks for the tip! :)

  3. I've been wanting some too! I keep asking for a bulk order from 'happy tape' for birthdays etc but havnt had any yet. This makes a good substitute until I do!


Thank you for visiting Thisel & Bean and taking the time to leave a note. I really look forward to reading your comments ...
