...caught on tape...fabric scraps turned into, well, tape
I was browsing a Japanese craft site (using Google's translator...which often creates confusing but funny translations) and found this very simple, but attractive way to add some uniqueness to your packages or anything else you need tape for. And it's a great use for fabric scraps too small to do much with.

So here's my version of this "trendy tape" in English for you.

  • How to make a tape. Stylish Custom Fabric Tape - Step 1
    Step 1

    Stick strips of the double sided tape to the backside of the fabric.
    (It's hard to seen in the pic, but the reflection/shiny parts on the fabric is the tape.)

  • How to make a tape. Stylish Custom Fabric Tape - Step 2
    Step 2

    Cut the fabric along the sides of the tape with scissors.

    (I actually found it kind of hard to see the tape well enough to know where I needed to cut.)

  • How to make a tape. Stylish Custom Fabric Tape - Step 3
    Step 3

    Cut your fabric/tape strips to the length you desire with a pair of pinking shears.
    If you don't have pinking shears you can use regular scissors. But pinking shears give the ends that "notched" look that tape often has.

  • How to make a tape. Stylish Custom Fabric Tape - Step 4
    Step 4

    Stick your tape where you want it.

    Kawaii, neh?

Hi Chiara,
If you look up above where it says "Based on an original project available here" and click on that it will take you to the original Japanese project.

But here's the link again for you as well.

The whole site has lots of great ideas. If you don't know Japanese you can use Google's translate tool. It's not perfect (but it's a little better than others), but it helps to navigate the site and to understand instructions at least a little bit.
