Hey guys, I love washi tape as much as everyone else, but I also really love deco tape! I'm hoping some of you do as well because I have some pretty cute deco tapes to share and trade as samples :)

For this swap you will have one partner to send:

5 washi tape samples (at least 12" per sample)


5 deco tape samples (at least 12" per sample')

For anyone confused about the difference, washi tape is the paper tape that can be torn easily with your fingers. Deco tape is the tape with a "shiny" look/feel (or I've even seen glittery ones) that has to be cut with scissors.

Tapes need to be wrapped around a non-stick surface like a playing card or piece of plastic of some sort. This is sender's choice for the most part, but I think it's always nice to to look at your partner's profile to avoid any dislikes they may have. Happy Swapping!

I like deco tape too, but will it peel off itself on the sample cards?

I don't see why it wouldn't. It comes on rolls where it is stuck to itself. Unless you have to peel off a backing paper before sticking it down, that is.

Deco tape samples work the same way washi samples do. I exchange them back and forth with pen pals all the time. There are some that have a backing paper though as @cookingbear mentioned. and those probably wouldn't be a good idea to use unless you just cut off a 12" strip and fold it to fit in the envelope rather than winding it around a card.

@cookingbear LOL, you are right - they do come on rolls stuck to itself; I'm not sure what I was thinking. :)

I have found that with the cheaper deco tapes, part of the design gets pulled up when you unroll it from a sample. It's stuck to itself on the roll but wasn't designed to restick like washi tape. Better deco tapes don't do this though so it's always helpful to do a little test run. ☺

That's a good point @unicornsandsnowcones

I suppose we could always send some extra deco tapes too, to allot for that possible mishap. :)
