really cool tape

Sticky tape, packing tape, parcel tape, call it what you will - I've been looking at some really cool stuff.

I love tape. I don't know why, but I do. I've been looking for some fun tape to use in crafty projects but haven't come across any in 'real life' - only on the internet. BUT, the ones I've been looking at on the internet are really cool.

this keyboard tape from here


this cloud tape from here (I really really want some of this tape)


Oooo pretty damask tape from here


this tape reminds me of The IT Crowd credits (see them here)

how cute is this?! I wonder if the little story repeats itself or whether it's one massively long story. I like to think the latter.

I like the hearts. I think the bottom one looks quite fun too - it reminds me a bit of the illustrations from The Mighty Boosh.
you know I love polka dots :o)

I LOVE this one! Not only are the picnic illustrations wonderful and the colours are oh-so-pretty, but there's a Playmobil lady standing beside it! Brilliant!

FABRIC tape?! This probably isn't a new invention but I've never used fabric tape before. This is gorgeous. These last few tapes were all from here. Yes, that's right, none of them sold in the UK. [insert huge sad face here]

Do any of you know where I could get these in the UK? {especially that lovely cloud tape} Let me know if you do. That would make me very happy. 

[if you're interested in more tape, Reuben Miller does a tape review here and also toxel.com show off some cool designs here]

  1. They don't have the cloud tape, but this site appears to have lots of others in the same make http://www.npw.co.uk/page/pop-tape?p=1 and is uk based.

    A friend gave me the rainbow one she found in a little shop, I love it :)
