Prima Decorative Tape {C’est Bon}

Tape is one of those products that we use on a regular basis to wrap presents, hold things together and we just really never think much about it. It’s usually one of those things we DON’T want seen. Leave it to Prima to come up with some cool decorative tape that makes an awesome embellishment, is economical and so easy to use. You may have seen this product before but never really thought about how to use it. I like to use mine just as you would any strip of paper or ribbon…as a layer to break up the design and add a fun look.


Why do I love it?

  • quick to use…just pull off a strip and use it
  • fresh and funky product
  • sticky backed and easy to adhere
  • gorgeous classic decorative patterns that can be used in traditional, vintage, shabby, grungy or even clean styles
  • I love clear accents and this product adds a nice visual interest without adding bulk
  • they are a great embellishment for masculine designs as well as feminine
  • mostly comes in black but is available in a few other colors
  • available in packing tape size width or the smaller tape size
  • inexpensive ….$2.99 US each
