When I was in elementary school, I had a roll of patterned tape that featured Hello Kitty on a red background. It was so special that I kept it in my desk and used it bit by bit for special occasions to add some flair to everyday items. Fast forward to the present and my patterned tape obsession has returned but these days I’m more carefree with my use of tape thanks Office Depot and 3M Scotch Expressions Tape. Office Depot carries the largest assortment of Expressions Tape for endless personalization and since it’s available at my local store, when I run out or inspiration strikes, I can get more!
As a participant in the #ScotchExpressions campaign, Office Depot and 3M provided me with tape for my projects and compensated me for my time crafting and documenting my creations. All opinions (and obsessions) are my own.
Office Depot sent me an assortment of tape to get started but I had to visit my local store to see what additional choices were available. 3M’s Scotch Expressions Tape line comes in 5 types- Magic (like regular Scotch Tape), Washi, Masking, Packing, and Duct tape varieties. The wide assortment of types and patterns allows for endless creativity and project ideas, making them perfect for personalizing, organizing, and crafting!
Since we recently decided to turn an unused corner of our home into a sewing nook, we decided to spice up a thrift store table with some spray paint and Scotch Expressions Duct Tape. Since we wanted something colorful, the kids helped select a patterned tape and we purchased coordinating colors to brighten up the space.
While we were at Office Depot shopping for back to school supplies and organizers for our sewing nook, the kids and I found these paper clip dispensers that were on sale for $0.53! We grabbed both and went home to spice them up with Washi and Masking tape. They sit on the window ledge next to the sewing machine and the transparency of the tape allows the light to see through while the undecorated space lets us know what’s inside. They currently hold safety pins and stick pins!
We also had a white all purpose metal tin that wasn’t really being used that we dressed up with Scotch Expressions Duct Tape. The trickiest thing about the tub was it’s tapered shape but the white space that shows through provides a visual break for the eyes and works with the star pattern of the Duct Tape.
