    Paper tape seems to be all the rage lately. Though sometimes it's hard to justify the cost for tape. And what to do if you don't like the designs.

    You can make your own customized paper tape for a fraction of the cost.

    I bought a 2 pack of paper tape (for sensitive skin) from CVS for a total of $4.24
    Using Staz-on ink and a stamp of my choosing I was able to quickly stamp up my own designed tape.

    I tore off some strips laid down on my craft mat–don't worry the tape peels right up. My stamp for demo is 3 so I tore 3 strips and laid side by side. Inked my stamp up with jet black staz on–but you can use any color and stamped away.

    Now I have customized paper tape for my next project

            "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

            Laughing–If I'd been patient I could have had my dh bring me home some and it would have been free. I'm kind of impatient though. He has this on his list of supplies from the hospital for me now though

              and here is an altered canvas I made today using a bunch of my tape. It blends in just like the TH tape.
