I can guarantee that I will run out of tape while wrapping gifts. It doesn’t matter how much I have purchased, I am going to either misplace it, my son is going to tape stuff all over the house or my husband is going to try and defuzz his sweaters with a fist full of tape (at least I didn’t say his chest!). Take your pick, all three will happen. It also happens when I am crafting. But it’s usually glue for my hot glue gun. It’s like the project pictured here. Simple enough. 9×4 and 12×4 cones, covered in scrap booking paper and topped with a Christmas ornament on top for festivity. Since the craft only took an hour and I was going to have it ready and on my sideboard before I had friends over for dinner, I thought “piece of cake”.
It never happens that way. If it did, my mouth would be riddled with cavities.
No glue for my hot glue gun. No foam spray glue. So, I did what any self-respecting woman, with a naked side board would do, broke out the scotch tape. What you have before you my friends thought I spent hours on. Instead? I slapped it together with tape in under five minutes. It’s adorable and my dining companions looked at me as if I were the holy grail of domestic doyennes, Martha Stewart. Secretly, Martha would have been slapping me around my house for my lack of preparation.
I don’t want you to be caught unawares this holiday season. Does that mean I am giving you a great to-do list to keep you organized? Nope. I am giving you tape. Lots and lots of Scotch Tape!
