Using Scotch’s new Expressions Tape to Make an Impression

It is always fun to do simple crafts that do not take a lot of time, but allows us to put a personal touch to our space. I made this Washi tape decorated pencil and Tape decorated Stationary Holder using Scotch’s new Expressions Tape. These projects only took me a few minutes to do and changed my work space instantly. To make the Washi tape Pencils I used...
Washi tape
Scissor or craft knife 
Cut the tape to the exact length of the pencil. 
Then put some glue on the pencil and carefully place the Washi tape around the pencil using the width of the tape. 
Smoothen the Washi tape, so there are no air bubbles. The pencil can still be sharpened after placing the Washi tape, if needed peel the tape a little bit to help sharpen.  
For this Tape decorated Stationary Holder I used...
Scotch Expressions Magic Tapes
Scotch Expressions Masking Tapes
Clean recycled glass jar 
Make sure the jar is clean and dry, if you want you can glue a decorative paper, coloured paper or white paper on to the jar before using the tape. 
I placed my tapes directly on the clean, dry jar. I alternated between the patterned Masking Tape and Magic Tape.
