learn the basic differences between tapes and get ideas for using tape in unique ways to solve everyday problems
Tape 101 What's the Difference?
Doing a job right means starting out with the proper tools. Each one of Scotch Brand Tapes is designed to address a particular range of applications. Don't let the wrong tape keep your project from turning out perfect.
Get Organized with Washi Tape
With so many colors and patterns to choose from, washi tape makes it easy to distinguish between items at a glance. You can use it to differentiate electrical cords, keep glasses separate at a party, keep a calendar in order or label containers. To take your organizing to the next level you can even write on it in pen or pencil.
Fix a Frayed Shoelace
If you need to replace an aglet, the plastic or metallic tube at the end of your shoelace, look no further than Scotch MultiTask Tape. Simply wrap the tape around the frayed part to form a replacement cylinder. You can also use washi or decorative duct tape to personalize your shoelaces and add a pop of color.
Arranging Flowers with Scotch Magic Tape
Make sure your vases work harder with Scotch Magic Tape. Using strips of the same length, make an evenly spaced grid across the top of a vase (although the one in the photo is square, a round vase will work just as well).
Then, simply stick your flowers in the empty squares between the tape. This will ensure your arrangement will stand up straight without having to crowd flowers together or loading it with filler.
