I didn't want to add color as much as I did detail. This is for my crafting desk at home. My color scheme is black and pink with a hint of green. The pink and green tape I have did not coordinate well so I chose to use this simple lace pattern. I think it turned out rather nice.
After that I kind of went "crazy". I was in the process of gathering things for my classroom at school and wanted to "spruce" up some items. I purchased this bulletin board at a garage sale for $1.00. It had your basic metal gray frame, well that was not going to look very nice. So, I added washi tape to the edge. It was the perfect width and when I want to change the color scheme of my classroom I can just remove the tape and put on a different color.
After the bulletin board I moved to my desk items. I added two rows of tape to my paper clip dispenser. And look I even found matching paper clips. I also added some to my tape dispenser at school. It looks like the one above just different colored tape.
One of the last projects I did was this "W". I found it on clearance at Michael's for 30 cents. It was a pale pink and not very exciting. I added rows of the washi tape on the diagonal. After the tape was secure I brushed on a couple of layers of Mod Podge to make it more durable. I have not found a place to hang this in my classroom yet. One thought I had was to glue it to the end of a cut off door hanger and then let the "W" become the hook.
I think I may have found another crafting addition. This might not be a good thing. But at least I am having a great time!
