Every now and then I’m able to try something new – either as a gift from a brand or because I simply want to try it. Either way one thing is for certain: All opinions offered are 100% mine. I hope that my experiences will help you to make informed decisions!![/question] Every now and again I get an opportunity to try something I’ve been eyeing for a while. Frog Tape® was kind enough to sponsor this post and gift me some of their new amazing Shape Tape™ to do my crafty thing with. All opinions are mine alone. Check out what I made!! Alright, so I originally only intended to do one craft with the FrogTape’s Shape Tape. But it turned out really well and went really quick so I ended up doing another just because. Let’s start with the mirror Jar.
What You Need
- Frog Tape® Shape Tape™ in whatever pattern you want (they have Chevrons, Scallops and waves!
- Glass Jar or vase.
- Mirror paint or silver craft paint.
How To Make It:
- Clean your glass well with alcohol to get any finger oils off of it. Then apply your Shape Tape™ wherever you think it looks best.
- Be sure to mask off any parts of your project that you don’t want painted.
- Spray or sponge paint the exposed area. I used a neat mirror paint product I had laying around. All Frog Tape® had PaintBlock which is an element that reacts with latex paint to make a good seal and keep paint from leaking under the tape. I’m not sure if it works with the type of paint I used, but I was pleased to see a nice crisp line when I pulled the paint off!
- Viola! That’s it. All in all it only took me a minute or two. That’s when I decided I wanted to try another craft with this awesome tape!
I recently bought a plain jane tshirt from a thrift store and it was itching for a makeover. After my first craft with the Shape Tape™ I had a great idea for what to do. A little tape, a littel glitter fabric paint and I have an understated but upcycled top.
What You Need
- Frog Tape® Shape Tape™
- Fabric Paint and applicator sponge
How To Make It
- Wash your shirt and dry without softener. We want the fabric raw and ready for paint.
- Use the tape to make your design. Be sure to put something inside the shirt to prevent color bleeding to the back.
- Use the applicator sponge to add your paint. You might want to do several coats.
- Take off the tape and see your creation!
Overall I loved the Scalloped tape and I can’t wait to think of more things to do with it. The PaintBlock technology seems like a great addition, and even without latex paint I was pleased at the clean lines I was able to get. Oh, and don’t forget to check out @FrogTape on Twitter and Pinterest for tons of ideas! So, what would you do with Chevron, Scallop or Wave tape?
