Wee find: Decorative tapes
Here’s something completely non-essential that I can’t stop looking at: decorative tape. I briefly touched on the subject recently when I posted about Lazy Oaf, but I’ve since found a couple of relatively new UK-based online shops that do a particularly good job at sourcing some hard-to-find varieties from Japan, Korea, the US and beyond.
I’ve been gifted some very cool Japanese MT Tape (above, £5.95 for a pack of two) by
Nonesuchthings, who describes her website as ‘somewhere between a blog
and a shop’. It’s made from Washi (rice) paper and is removable, so
it can be used for all sorts of crafty and enterprising endeavours.
Meanwhile, Papermash (above) stocks all manner of gorgeous stationery goodies that excites paper nerds like myself, including a lovely lace design (£3.75, above) and a pretty illustrative birdy tape. Don’t miss the ‘Free’ page which features a nifty downloadable snowflakes votive project (very pretty for Christmas).
