Create a spooky place setting with black Expressions Magic™ Tape* and Black Butterflies Expressions Packaging Tape*. If you’re feeling extra creative, make spider plates to pair with the placemats.

*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Cut tag board to make the placemat’s base. Our placemat was 14 inches by 10 inches.

  • For the web’s long strips, cut Expressions Magic™ Tape into thirds lengthwise on a cutting mat.

  • Apply the long strips on the placemat in a starburst shape, placing one end of the strip toward the middle and working your way out. Repeat in a circular direction, trimming excess tape along the edge.

  • Connect each line of tape with shorter thin strips to finish the web. It’s better if the tape doesn’t line up exactly, as it will look more like a real web.

  • Lay a strip of Black Butterflies Expressions Packaging Tape on a cutting mat and trace out insects with a hobby knife. Adhere the cut-outs to the web.
