I got a package in the mail! Love getting fun stuff in the mail. This time it was a bunch of fun stuff from Lifestyle Crafts to try out…two packs of their new Shape ‘N Tape and a Tape It cutting die kit. Um…FABULOUS! And it’s ON SALE this week!!! (see bottom of post)
First, let me say that I love washi tape. I’ve been hoarding it lately like I did Mrs. Grossman stickers when I was in elementary school. But, I have to say, this stuff is BETTER than regular washi tape! The Shape ‘N Tape is a pack of 5, 6″x12″ sheets of tape. SHEETS! So it’s not just a little strip. You can run this stuff through a die cut machine…into. any. shape. Brilliant. It was really easy to work with too. (I was afraid it would be too sticky and stick to itself like packing tape or Saran Wrap does, neither of which I am good at handling.) It’s not too sticky, but sticky enough. I even accidentally got it stuck to itself and it peeled right off. It sticks to paper beautifully (and paper bags).
There are actually 18 cutting dies in the set, I just picked a few to try out first. I cut off a piece of tape sheet and I placed a bunch of dies on the cutting pad. I was able to get a bunch of shapes on a small area of the tape sheet. I rolled the dies through the machine…perfect cuts. No frayed edges or uncut sides.
Those little bags are perfect to hold a gift card. I wrapped up a music card, folded the edge and secured it with a cute little tape flag I cut. I stamped a date on it…I’m using these for Valentine’s Day gifts for the kids! (little clothespin came from Michael’s too)
Cute. Easy. The best part of this post is that Lifestyle Crafts is offering a BIG HUGE discount for my readers this week. Normally, you can purchase from their site and receive a 20% discount when you use the code LADY. This week (Monday through Sunday, the 21st – 27th) that discount jumps to 50%. HALF OFF! If you’ve been thinking about ordering, this is the week. I’m off to add to my stash right now.
