- Double-sided carpet tape
- Rotary cutter
- Cutting mat
Make Fabric Tape
Use a ruler and scissors to cut carpet tape to desired lengths. Peel backing off one side of a tape length. Center tape length on wrong side of fabric, sticky side down. Smooth tape to adhere it to the fabric. Use a rotary cutter to trim taped fabric to desired widths and lengths.
Add Tape to Gift Box
To use a woven ribbon wrapping technique to decorate a gift box lid, cut strips from four different patterns of fabric tape. Make sure the strips are long enough to wrap onto the lid sides; do not remove the backing. Weave the strips across the lid. Once you're comfortable with the design, peel and cut off only 1" of backing from each strip end; leave the rest of the backing in place. Press strips ends to the lid sides to hold the weave in place.
