Scotch Expressions Magic Tape - party ideas

The new Scotch® Expressions Tape is a brilliant addition to the family stationery stash.  It can be used to decorate a variety of household, stationery and recycled items.  I recently wrote a post about 5 ways I’ve been using the decorative tape around the house.   This time, I’m sharing how the tape can help make a birthday party special.

1. Birthday Photo Frame

Dress up a simple frame to match your theme.  I did this up for my daughter’s birthday and had her friends to sign on the white section around the picture as a memento.

 Materials

Plain Photo frame

Scotch® Expressions Packaging Tape

Permanent markers (different colours work well)

Instructions

I decided to decorate two sides of the frame but it’s easy to decorate the entire frame too.

  1. Lay a section of tape along the front section.
  2. Fold the excess tape along the side.
  3. For the corners, make a cut where the join is before folding over.

2. Party Decorations

Decorative tape is great for party planning because it helps to match themes and colours.  We did a pony party for my daughter this year, and went for a green and purple colour theme.   I used tape to decorate juice bottles, for tumblers, the pass the parcel game, and to label the party favours.

3. Cupcake Flag Toppers

Make these cute cupcake toppers in a jiffy. Toothpicks, tape and scissors is all there is to it!  This is a great way to tie in cupcakes treats into the theme of the party.

    However with the passage of time, the trend is changing and celebrities are introducing their own line of dresses.
    White metal is the most chosen metal because
    it beautifully complements any skin tone and brings out
    the beauty of gown or furnish. The females are most involved with these
    handbags which are trendy and suitable to their lifestyle.

    These significant changes give an opening to a market of specialists when it comes to tax preparation, auditing and bookkeeping.
    It provides comprehensive solutions to every accounting problem related to your business.
    Alas, business deductions act as a salve to cool the burning and itching of your bank account.
