Masking Tape Crafts from Japan!

Last year when Leigh went to Japan, she brought me a beautiful wooden tape dispenser and a bunch of colorful and patterned rolls of tape. We keep the dispenser on our desk at the shoppe, and I swap out the rolls every so often, but I haven't gone much further than to wrap the occasional gift with it. But after visiting this site I'm starting to understand the "mt" (masking tape) craze!

Tape as ribbon!

Tape as flowers!

Tape as notebook decor and folder binding!
(I scanned this one out of a magazine last week- a magazine that featured pages and pages of masking tape crafts. I love this stuff...)
