Let’s get inspiring. This is no ordinary blog. Here at Crafters Corner we primarily focus on How to’s, DIY’s, crafts, art pieces, tips & tricks, etc. all using the “tape on” or “tape off” concept: tape is either used as a marking/masking only tool and removed from final design or present for design/function/assembly.
At Crafters Corner anyone can be a crafter--a maker, a Do-IT yourselfer. We want to inspire the “un-crafty”, the last minute planner, the family, the office, the teacher, the community, etc., because crafting is not limited to any one audience. So say…YES I CAN! At Crafters Corner you can express yourself freely; feedback and comments are encouraged! So come on everyone! What are you waiting for? Embrace your creative side. We’ve made it easy to be a “crafter”!
Who doesn’t love smores and good camp out with some old school shadow puppets?
To get the kids prepared for their first real campout away from home, I decided we would of course turn it into a fun art experience right in our backyard. The tent was super fun to decorate and we added a lot of safety hacks using Pro Tapes® tape products I thought were worth sharing.
As a recent college graduate and former on campus resident (now renter), I’ve acquired a bunch of great hacks and DIYs over the years on ways to decorate and organize my space like a pro without damaging any walls, furniture, or my wallet!
Working at Pro Tapes® and learning about all of our amazing clean removal products, it had really opened my eyes to so many more ways to achieve the same outcome but with much more ease, and effectiveness. Before I would be using “clean removal” products that actually weren’t so easy to remove. Now that I have been introduced to UGlu®, Pro® 46 and Pro Gaff®; the whole game has changed!
Keep in mind there are two distinct ways I utilized these three Pro Tapes® products; one, tape is being used as the actual decoration, and two, tape is being used as a replacement for hooks, nails, glue or screws.
Shall we jump right into it?
Being the neat freak I am, I love this hack because I like everything to be tucked away and out of sight. For this solution, every inch of unutilized space will be utilized, for the ultimate tidy room.
Who doesn’t love a good hack? Not only are these hacks awesome but they also really work!
