There have been many times that I have walked past the Scotch tape section at Office Depot and tried to come up with an excuse to buy every pattern and color. I just couldn’t justify it. THEN, one day Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape asked us to come up with creative projects that included their tape. WHAT?! There’s just something about patterned Scotch tape. How can all this tape not make you smile? It looks like CANDY (my iPhone doesnt do the colors justice)! With my kiddos birthday party right around the corner, I decided I had to incorporated this tape into my planning. What’s a birthday cake without some adorable looking bunting? This is such an easy way to personalize so many things! ***WARNING*** This post is pic heavy.
Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape Bunting Supplies:
- Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape in the colors of your choice. I used Cherry Red, Sunshine Yellow, Pearl White, and Green Apple
- Jute twine
- Scotch Double Sided Sticky Tape
- Scotch Precision Non-Stick Scissors – these are the best things since sliced bread, you guys! Seriously, you need them in your life.
- The tape was a little wider than I had originally planned, so the solution was simple – fold it in half, hot dog style. Once you have it folded, fold the tape again to the length that you’ll want your pendant. You could measure with a ruler, but I just eyeballed this. Place your jute twine in the crease and then position a piece of double sided sticky tape in between and fold over.
- Now that you have your tape on the twine, you can start cutting to create the flag or pendant. You can assemble the bunting first before you start cutting though. I just preferred to cut as I went.
Now that you have every pendant attached, it’s time to sit back and admire it. I used mine for cupcakes as well as a cake smash cake. There are many other ways to display these though! Just be creative! I thought it would also be cute to have coordinating mason jar bands. The pictures make it look like the tape bubbled, but in person you did not see it. The jar was slightly textured though and the tape still stuck and I received so many compliments!
Mason Jar Supplies
- Mason jars, wine glass, old frappuccino container etc.
- Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape – I used Sunshine Yellow and Paisley Princess
Again, I did not measure for this project. I simply stretched my tape out, laid my mason jar down and wrapped it. Then, with my fancy Scotch Precision Scissors, I cut at the right length. I thought the band needed some more pizzazz which is why I added the Paisley Princess. I LOVE this pattern. It is so girly and fun, but still a classic pattern. Did you think I was done? I’m not!! There are seriously endless ways to use this tape! On the day of my daughter’s actual birthday, I made her a special waffle cake. I served it along with her favorite; almond milk, strawberries and a fun straw. The girl loves her straws – bendy, striped, crazy etc. I decided I’d use the Paisley Princess tape again to create a pendant tag, since I loved the pattern so much. With little effort, I was able to make her morning even more special! To make the straw tag, you can follow the bunting instructions above.
