*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Using Expressions Washi Tape and Expressions Masking Tape, spell out a name, make a first initial or snip pieces of tape to create an eye-catching geometric pattern.

  • For a name, roll out your tape on a cutting mat. Using a straightedge, trim it into as many small pieces as you need to make letters.

  • For a letter, adhere Expressions Masking Tape first, then apply a layer of Expressions Washi Tape for pop.

  • For a plastic bag, cut pieces of tape to add funny faces and patterns.

  • EXPERT TIP: Keep your design low on the bag so you can roll the top down for carrying and still have the decorations show.
