SMART TIPS FOR CHOOSING TAPES
Washi tape is a term is to describe decorative Japanese adhesive paper tape. It is very durable and it comes in many different colours, patterns, textures and widths. They tear easily by hand and it does not leave behind any sticky residue, which therefore makes it perfect for home décor or craft projects.
The best quality “made in Japan” tapes, like MT masking tape, are also non-toxic and food safe. Not all Washi tapes are the same, so if you intend to still eat your eggs after decorating them, do make sure they are food safe.
Everybody loves William Morris motifs. One of the most revered textile designers in history, his fine and elaborate details on fabrics, wall papers, and embroideries have endeared the masses and still much loved today. You can use tapes to create the Victorian British style on your own eggs with tapes now available from MT Japan.
2. Cute Animals
Who doesn’t like cute animals? There are so many to choose from; cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters and many many more. Once you’ve chosen your favourite animal, just stick away! Here are some of our favourite puppy and poodle Washi tapes!
To make the striped washi tape Easter egg, start by pulling out a length of washi tape approximately 6 inches long. Use scissors to cut the washi tape into long thirds. Place the strips around the egg at random, in whatever pattern you prefer. Continue this process until you are happy with the pattern. This is one of the simplest way to decorate Easter eggs.
Cut strips from your MT tape rolls or you could use Kitta Slim washi tape to stick them onto the paper eggs in horizontal, vertical or diagonal patterns. You can also place them randomly, overlapping the strips as you go. It’s perfectly fine for the washi tape to go over the edges of the eggs.
4. Garden Inspiration
No messy dyes are needed to decorate a garden-inspired easter egg. To create the flowers petal pattern, peel off a few individual pieces of Bande washi roll stickers and paste them on the eggs. For the best effect, you could use Bande Clover Washi roll stocker to add butterflies. You can also leave the edges of the leaves slightly sticking out, instead of fully pasted onto the egg, so that there is a more 3-dimensional feel to your egg. When the butterfly is applied that way, it would seem like it is fluttering around the flowers!
All you need is a few rolls of washi tapes and scissors. You can cut small triangles out of one long strip of washi tape. Your triangles can be varying shapes and sizes, most important is that you could keep the distance between the triangles as you place them on the egg.
Go slow and steady with this one, placing the triangles one by one as you assess and visualize the size or shape of triangle that you’ll need next to keep filling in your egg.
Continue cutting small triangles until your egg is complete.
