we heart papertape!!!

yes we know we've posted about our love for papertape before.
we just can't help it.
we heart papertape.
lots.
click here to see them all

1. sturdy, yet easy to tear. 
2. sew on it. 
3. stamp on it. 
4. write on it.
5. use distress ink to change the color.
6.  paper backing makes it easy to cut with decorative scissors. (and share!)
7.  Add rubbings over the top to add detail.
8. cut it up and make something else like a little flag or banner.
9.  make patterns using the design of the tape, like a frame.
10.  layer tapes for added texture.
love it.

EACH PROJECT HAS ITS OWN UNIQUENESS . SO MANY 7 GYPSIES PRODUCTS ARE INCORPORATED IN THESE PROJECTS AND ITS SO HARD TO PICK OUT WHICH IS MY FAVORITE, BUT IF I WAS TO PICK ONE I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THE PROJECT WITH THE GYPSIES GEARS , THE GEARS HAVE DEFINITELY ADDED A PERFECT DIMENSION TO THE WORK!!
