My seminary students from Singapore and Tokyo will tell you that I am obsessed by little black notebooks. I always have one in my bag. They are perfect for taking notes or jotting down ideas. The other day I was in Kinokuniya (a really big bookshop) and noticed the MT-Deco (masking tape). I had seen it before, but was never sure what to do with it. The display included several books dedicated to using MT for crafts. I opted not to buy the books, they are in Japanese, and just browsed through them for ideas. I did buy several rolls of the cute tape.
I decided to try some out on a couple of my notebooks. It took less than 5 minutes to do both of these.
I “googled” Japanese masking tape to see if I could find any ideas for using it. I was shocked to see how much some people in the US are selling it for…almost three times what I paid for it here in Tokyo. I’ll be looking for new ideas to use it, I have a few in mind.
