I finally broke down and bought some of that beautiful Japanese masking tape I've been seeing all over the web. Let me tell you, it's just as awesome as it looks! It's not very sticky, so it can be repositioned easily, even when it's stuck to paper! It has a slight transparency so its fun to layer different colors and patterns. I used it to wrap my sister's birthday present. Just used simple kraft paper and layered in a woven pattern. So simple and so pretty!
I ordered my tapes from PrettyTape on Etsy.
