While the price tag of this tape dispenser is a hefty £120, its stunning style is right up there too. Cast concrete and spun copper are as utilitarian as the desk item, yet so freakin' gorgeous. Can one fall in love with a tape dispenser? Akita tape dispenser, £120, Plant & Moss.
Most of the time, wrapping materials get used up on the outside of presents, but lucky me, I found a few supplies under the tree this Christmas, including these treasures:
A dozen rolls of coloured bakers twine and a roll of grid-patterned fabric tape.
Four fun little fuzzy tufts, with adhesive backings so I can attach them easily to gifts.
Glitter tape in black and aqua, velvet ribbon in lavender on a vintage-style wooden spool, and soft blue tissue (the colour is more unusual than it looks here).
Tiny brass scissors, a clear acrylic tape dispenser, and patterned cellophane tape in polka dots and lace.
Lucky me! Can't wait to use them all!
Wrapping gifts can get awkward when you're hunting under papers and ribbons for the tape. Keep your adhesive in view with this extra tall Anything tape dispenser, $40 US each, from See Jane Work. (I especially like the yellow.)
