Attacked with tape - review



Last year I blogged about my poor man's version of washi tape - electrical tape. It's been my go-to for a number of projects around our home. My favourite being our cat food tins, as seen above. I covered both head-to-toe in black and white electrical tape. Pretty straight forward, and a quick fix for an otherwise massively ugly orange tin.

I also covered a small Pringles tin for my desk in work ...



... and I recently covered my rather boring 2013 agenda, which had a massive brand name and date on it. Thanks, but no thanks.

{I think} the beauty of electrical tape is that it not only is made to last {i.e. the cat tins have been covered for a year now, and the tape hasn't morphed, slid or peeled in any way}, and it comes in different colours. I've seen blue, red, yellow, green and orange on my travels. And for around €1 per roll in home hardware stores, you literally cannot go wrong. 

You can check out my original tutorial here. Although it's pretty self explanatory - apply tape ad nauseam.
