If you have little kids around the house, you know they’re drawn to stickers like the proverbial moth to a flame. It’s not just kids either, even if your age is past the single digits, there is something about sticky things that are just so entertaining!
Is it because of that great gooey adhesive that gets stuck on your fingers? Or is it the challenge of attaching something sticky to a straight surface? It might be a little of both. It’s a great feeling when you get a sticker or tape (!) on correctly, without those pesky bubbles.
We got some colorful stickers and box tapes online last week and we were looking around for some great ways to use them, especially these box tapes with fun geometric and nature-inspired designs.
Here’s what we found:
Illustrator and crafter Merrillee used these decorative tapes as cute striped details for her tea party invitations.
Camille used her tape as a great lacy touch for her vases.
Designer Susanna Vento simply uses her tape to create a super colorful and always changeable inspiration board (over at Dwell) instead of spending for expensive frames.
We tried these box tapes on the wall and they look great, especially when the green was picked up by the house plants.
Of course, we could always make that package extra-special by sealing it with this designed tapes.
As you can see, they can brighten up a plain background and give it that touch of playfulness. Where do you think you need a bit of something sticky?
