In this swap you will give your partner between 15 and 20meters of deco tape. It can be a full roll of tape (about 15 meters and $3USD) or samples of deco tape adding up to 15 - 20 meters. If you don't have a kawaii store by you there are some stores on etsy/ebay. PM me if you need sources.

This is a sender's choice so please rate a 5 if you get the tape on time. Even though it's a sender's choice please look at profiles to try to earn some hearts.

This swap is open to those with ratings above 4.8 and no 1's or 3's in the last 6 months. If you think you warrant an exception please PM me.

For those of you watching do you think 2 weeks is long enough to get the deco tape?

I am brand new, and I know what you wrote, but I had to try anyway. I have a website: www.takaratown.com, and from there you can get to my personal and business website, as well as my blog. I can assure you that I will not flake! I would really love this opportunity.

Thanks, Jenny

are there any tips to rolling he deco tape samples so they do not crumple? the wider tapes i am having a hard time rolling, with out getting ripples.... :/

hmmm that's a good one, i've only wrapped the smaller one. Have you tried pulling more taunt as you roll. also make sure what you're rolling it onto is even. an idea is to hold the original roll with your legs then attach the free end to the new roll. Roll the new roll down while holding it taunt. let me know if it works

When you said "samples" in the swap description meant the mini rolls that have five metres on them.

It's probably better to send the end of a roll than to re-roll tape off a roll. Aside from the hassle, dust will get caught on the adhesive and the tape won't stick as well as it does coming off the roll. A new 15m roll of deco tape measures 4mm from the outer edge of the cardboard core to the outer edge of the tape, and a new 25m roll measures 6mm. If you're sending a half-used roll, this measurement will help you make sure there's enough tape left on the roll.

If I were to receive re-rolled tape I would not give the sender a heart.

I agree with what @manders2280 says. I'd rather not get re-rolled tape. It WONT stick as well. :(
