Damask Wedding Ideas (Part 2) Another Five Do-It-Yourself Damask Decoration Ideas

The TapeSwell Team was psyched when we saw this wonderful post by The Blog of Paper Wonders. The ideas are brilliant, the photography is gorgeous and it is all so well written that we are just going to repost their entire blog post (with permission, of course). Please also, visit PaperWonders.com or visit one of their locations in California.

We now have Tapeswell packing tape at our new Brea store! To celebrate this momentous occasion and to get you started on your packing tape projects, we came up with a few ideas to liven up any wedding reception or dinner party.

Damask Table Numbers
1. Table Numbers
These table numbers were printed on thick cardstock (we used a shimmery white with metallic finish). Apply your packing tape and mount on a folded piece of black cardstock or leave as a one-layer. Garnish with ribbons and you're done! Who knew a strip of packing tape could add elegance to table numbers. Not I…
Damask Favor Bag & Damask Favor Box
2. Gift bags
The transparency of the tape makes it work especially well on cellophane. We applied the tape down one side of a standard cellophane bag, stuffed it with tissue shreds and threw the gift in, rustling it around a bit for good measure. Finish with a black bow and optional gift tag (see below).

3. Favor Boxes
Apply tape over the lid of the desired favor box. Using an Xacto knife, carefully make an incision from the inside surface of the lid. Insert ribbon ends from the outside to hide the slit and tapes the ends down. The good thing is there is usually a double-layer flap on the inside of the lid, so you can hide the ribbon ends under that.

Damask Place Cards
4. Place Cards
I’m sure you guys know the drill now...Just keep in mind that you should leave about 1.5 inches of space on whichever side you decide to stick the tape on. A strip of tape down the left (or right, or top), score, then fold.
Damask Gift Tags
5. Gift Tags
We thought adding a flourishy monogram on the tag would go well with the elegance of the damask and add a nice personal touch. Once again, you could dress it up with a black layer, or keep it simple with damask tape on one side, names on the other. We also added a black donut around the punched hole.

We didn't wander into the world of programs, menus or invitations this time, but you could theoretically use the same roll of tape to decorate all of the paper goods for your wedding and wow your guests with not only your craftiness and resourcefulness, but also consistent damask pattern =P

Till next time!

Decorated Package of The Month - July

The decorated package of the month for July is all dressed up in our newest Venetian Decorative Packing Tape. The pattern is so inspiring that we thought it deserved a matching card.

We'd like to dedicate this Thank-you package to our postal worker friends. They play such an important role in our lives. We appreciate all of their hard work and we are grateful for them.

So Happy Postal Workers Day!

And till next time,
