Tape Tricks from Britt

Anyone up for a little tape trick?

In the Very Virginia kit there is a whole roll of masking tape and a bottle of Antique Silver Maya Mist (among other super fantastic stuff) and I finally had a chance to play with it today.

Start with all these items from the kit and toss in some VersaMark, clear embossing powder, acrylic block, and heat gun.

Unroll about 16" of tape and tear it from the roll. Lay it down, sticky side up, and coat with baby powder or corn starch.

Turn the tape back over. Choose a stamp from the set and mount it on an acrylic block. Stamp in VersaMark along the top of the tape.

Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the stamped VersaMark and shake off the excess.

Use a heat gun to set the embossing powder.

Lay the tape inside your color catcher and spray it with the Maya Mist. Rub off the excess.

This is what you'll end up with - all the mist comes off of the stamped area.

Sew a straight stitch down the side and ruffle as you go.

After the tape is ruffled, lay a piece of the glitter ribbon over the top and run another straight stitch to secure the two pieces together.

And voila!

Merry Christmas!!!
