How-to: Make Scented Paper Tape/Washi Tape Using Drawer Liner Paper


Well, the title of this post says it all! Not only can you make your own Washi/Paper tape using the Xyron (that post is my how-to WITH video) but you can also take it a step further- make it scented, as well!

So here’s the story- I was walking through Marshall’s and saw this pretty scented drawer-liner. And of course, my first thought was, “Wow. I bet that would make pretty Washi tape.”

And then I thought how COOL it would be to add a scented component to my crafting. HUZZAH!

After I was done lining the drawers, I took the leftover pieces and ran them through my Xyron machine, removed the plastic covering, and then cut it into 1/2 inch strips.

As you can see, I made some sweet little tags with it. I am on an organizing bender, and I’ve sorted all of my fall/winter clothes and placed them in decorative boxes in my closet (with some scented paper, of course.) These little tags help me remember which size is in the box AND freshens the closet.

And here’s how they look in the closet.

YAY! Now my closets are organized AND smell fresh!

Now…wouldn’t it be nice to send a little card that smells nice? (Being mindful of your friends with sensitivities, of course!) But I think it’s a nice little surprise- kind of a throw-back to scented stationery. Would you ever try this?
