Hello friends! If you are stopping by from the Nester’s….my tape and I are happy to meet you!
About two months ago my friend Ashley asked me if I was up for a challenge.
Doesn’t she know challenge is my middle name?
She and her husband have co-authored four books. One of them is an incredible wall project book that I wrote about before. I made a giant wooden arrow and told you how amazing Ashley is and how she makes me laugh and want to completely decorate my house with orange and pink rugs.
The other three books feature collections of frameable art prints.
And that’s where the challenge came in.
She asked me to create a project using the prints in the book and share it along with nine other bloggers. My first idea was to create a shutter wall with pieces of the art. Each shutter would have individual pieces of the print on it. When the shutter was open you wouldn’t see anything….when it was closed you would see the picture.
Please, girl. #calmdown #waytoocomplicated
Next, I thought about transferring it to wood or fabric or making paper flowers from them or covering a clip board or making foldable origami Christmas trees.
But then I saw this over on a Beautiful Mess.
It’s a way to transfer images to tape. I know….right? And it is so easy. You can click over to see the whole tutorial….
….and I’ve also shown the Reader’s Digest version below.
Cue the pictures and tape transfer project using one of the prints from the book.
When you peel off the backing the tape becomes translucent.
The texture changes and it functions almost like a window cling.
I added the tape with the print on it to glass vases for a super simple diy project. The tape clings to the vase and adds a little pop of color.
And here’s one more vase for the road.
This time I took the print and turned it vertically on a small vase.
Now look at that tape and think of the possibilities.
You could transfer a child’s artwork.
Or a hand-written letter.
Or a newspaper clipping of the engagement announcement for wedding shower centerpieces.
Or sheet music of Christmas carols for a holiday party.
Little tape….oh the places you’ll go. 🙂
Thanks for the challenge Ashley!
