Aaand my Japanese masking tape obsession continues!  If you have been visiting us for a while now, you know my love of yummy washi paper tapes in all sorts of beautiful colors and patterns.

I blogged about them a while back and have since then taken note of the endless creative ideas and variety of uses (even if you’re not getting married!) around blogland. Boy-oh-boy, do I have a list for you, my dears!  From decorating boxes, packaging  and invites — inspiration abounds. Here is 1 of 4 installments.  Enjoy!

This may be a really stupid question, but can you put masking tape on a votive holder, or will it melt? I’m thinking about jazzing up some plain glass votives but wasn’t sure how they would turn out…..
