So, my sweet father was over yesterday doing a little work on my business Quickbooks when my sister arrived at the door, holding my Happy Tape package. I NEARLY screamed like a little girl, but managed to keep myself in-tact with only a few repressed squeals. Of course, my father wanted to know what was so darn exciting! I presented the box of colorful rolls with flourish and of course his first question was, "What do you do with it?" and I was like, "Geez, Dad! I don't know yet!! It's just pretty right now!" (I think it's interesting that I always present myself as a teenager when I regale my stories. I must look deeper into that...)
I've been trolling the web looking for ideas and apparently, I'm not the only freak obsessed with this delightful stuff, which is comforting.
I let my 10 year old Julia (and crazy crafter) play around with some. She kept things simple with bookmarks. Today, I found this great idea for twist ties from zakka life blog via the Jack and Izzy blog. (There is a how-to at zakka life.)
Uh, and I DID think of this one--note the little flags on the oranges. I was thinking more cupcake flags, but same difference. But now I'm going to have to come up with something even CUTER. (I have a weird craft competitive problem, I'll admit)
Whisker Graphics. I've always wanted to do something with clothespins since they are so darn useful.
And of course on a gift bag. This one is from A Spoonful of Sugar.
