there is something seriously wrong with me and my love for tape. all kinds of tape. washi tape. duct tape, packaging tape. masking tape. venting tape. i have it all. yes...i have a HUGE collection. so big i should be ashamed when i tell you i have over 300 rolls of tapes. i should be even more hesitant to say i still hunt for patterns i don't have.
i would say my affinity for packaging tape started quite a long time ago. i love coming up with ideas on how to use it. i was sent an idea through pinterest that my friend, cathy parmelee, had come across about making packaging tape postcards. i couldn't believe i hadn't thought of that! i use it for nearly everything else and anyone who knows me i LOVE postcards.
in fact i make postcards monthly to send to family and friends every month. it has been a great way to keep in touch with those people whom i love dearly. so the two ideas together makes total sense to me.
following through the pinterest site information on the postcard didn't provide exact instructions, so i just decided to wing it and see what i could come up with. now, keeping in mind this was my first attempt, i am on postcard number five and i'm seeing more and more how to create them.
i love making them so much that i decided i will make one for one lucky winner. i will pick a winner sometime next week so that you can start off your new year with a piece of mail art. all you have to do is leave a comment below. merry christmas!
