3M Scotch sent me some of their new decorative tape products to meddle around with and I decided to make a little banner for Easter. If you’d like to make one with your kids, here’s what you’ll need:
* A stack of Post-its
* A bunny-shaped cookie cutter or toy that’s smaller than a Post-it note
* Plain paper or index cards
* Decorative tape
First, set your bunny cookie cutter or toy on top of a plain sheet of paper or index card, and trace around it to get a bunny outline.
If you don’t have a suitable cookie cutter or toy, you can use the bunny template that I’ve created instead.
Next, turn your paper/card over and stick on your decorative tape. Play with white space and different colour combinations!
Flip your paper over to the side with the outline, and cut out the bunny. Then stick the bunny onto a Post-it note.
Start over and make more until you have enough Post-it notes for a banner. Have fun putting it up!
I received a package of complimentary decorative tapes from 3M Scotch. I don’t have much of a tape collection and I’m using these for the first time. The plain Magic Tapes are pretty thin (see banner pic, first Post-it from right), so you’ll have to use a double layer of tape if you’re particular about not having the see-through effect. The decorative masking tape (see banner pic, third Post-it from right) is easy to cut and tear off, and it removes cleanly too. I hope they expand this range!
