VIDEO: Decorated Tape Dispenser Project

Welcome to my first video project of 2017! It’s another from my make and takes that I did for PaperArtsy for the Crafting At Ally Pally show, and this one is sharing how to decorate a wooden tape dispenser with stamping and paint. But don’t worry if you don’t have a wooden tape dispenser! The techniques I share in this video will also work on boxes, picture frames, well all sorts of three
dimensional items.

This three dimensional item is made from untreated wood so I’ve used the PaperArtsy Fresco Finish acrylic paints directly on the surface. If you are using varnished wood or plastic objects then you may want to treat the surface with some gesso first to provide a surface that the paint can stick to.
