Repurposing; first aid tape


It’s been a busy few days for me so I have resorted to a simple and fast repurposing project. Many people have been making their own washi tape.  As a believer of using what you have on hand, I’ve decided to repurpose some of the rolls of first aid tape that were left over from a never to be repeated injury.  It’s lightweight, flexible, and easy to reposition.  The tape takes acrylic well, which is the first step before stamping.




I loved to use my Stampotique  tiny hand helds , and mini city cube  for this project.  The text is from my collage definition stamp. Details on my blog at veralanestudio.com. 
The weekend is nearly here. Try making some repurposed washi tape!

Hey, Janet! I love repurposing or upcycling items from not only around the studio, but, around the house, as you have done here with your medical tape. You have transformed it into something pretty by creating one-of-a-kind washi tape. The fact that you have further used it in the creation of something functional is even more genius! Way to go! Mwah! KayW
