I couldn’t hide my excitement when I saw the invitation to an afternoon of parent-child crafting to celebrate the launch of 3M®Scotch Expressions Tapes. I’ve long been an admirer of washi tapes – those small little (read: expensive!) rolls of Japanese masking tapes with ‘oh-so-pretty-I-want-them-all’ patterns. While friends around me hoard rolls of them and show off crafts after crafts of washified stuff, I held my ground. ‘Let’s not go there…’ I restrained myself, ‘it’s dangerous’. This time, the resistance is futile. Even my soon to be 6 year old have fallen heads over heels with these amazing tapes.
Just how versatile are these 3M®Scotch Expressions Tapes? With more than 55 colours and patterns in all, you are truly spoiled for choice. You can use them to embellish normal household items like forks and spoons; upcycle old knick knacks around the house, jazz up existing accessories and stationery to give it a new look; churn out personalized gifts and turn everything ho-hum into some kind of wonderful!
That afternoon, the kids were inspired to transform an ordinary Ikea children’s chair into an extraordinary fantasy throne, using any 3M®Scotch Expressions Tapes of their choice!

I have two immediate projects in mind to work on: to decorate my newly gifted MacBook Air and to create some spring planters for the home! I can’t wait to get started.
