I first heard about Scotch Expressions Tape earlier this year during the Craft and Hobby Association winter show chatter on Twitter. Given my love of washi tape, it sounded very interesting and I was intrigued. It wasn’t until just last week that I actually found a few roles tucked away on one of the endcaps at my local Target. Nothing special, just there, so I picked one up.
I didn’t know all that much about the tape, so I guess I was expecting a product more like washi tape. It’s definitely not. It’s basically colored… tape. It has a matte finish and looks like… tape.
I used the Expressions tape to decorate a package for Nick’s birthday. I paired it with some of my favorite washi tape.
Would I buy more of the Expressions tape? Maybe. It could be a good alternative to transparent tape when wrapping gifts? I just wasn’t that excited, unfortunately.
