Coloured Paper Tape

Here’s another thing about the traditional plastic tape, it doesn’t give a crafter any chance to add more colour or contrast different shades when they’re either crafting or wrapping presents. But, with coloured paper tape, like our ever changing range here at Hansel, you can really get imaginative in the way you put different colours together in both your wrapping paper and the tape that ties it all together. 

Made from eco-friendly materials, Hansel’s eco-friendly paper tape is not only vibrant but also sustainable. So why settle for plain sticky tape when you can make your gifts and projects stand out with our coloured paper tape? Choose your favourite shade and add a touch of vibrancy to your next gift or project. 

How Exactly Is Paper Tape Better For The Environment?

It may seem obvious that because clear sticky tapes that we use for all kinds of crafts and gift wrapping contain polypropylene (a harmful and non-recyclable plastic) that they lead to waste which is harmful to the planet. But just how much of an impact does this have?

Well, for starters, millions of spools of sticky tape are placed in landfill sites every year and polypropylene takes hundreds of years to properly break down meaning it’s around for much longer than the gift you wrapped or the person you gave it to ever will be. As well as this, sticky tape makes up a significant portion of the plastic which eventually ends up in our oceans, it is thought that in 2021 over 5.25 trillion macro and micro plastics were found in the sea and when using sticky tape you may be, unknowingly, contributing to this harm of marine life.

However, when you use the recycled tape we manufacture in Britain, you’re purchasing paper tape that is 100% sustainable and eco-friendly. This means that it’s not only safe to be recycled but it is also sourced from recycled materials helping us cut waste and reduce the impact that plastics like polypropylene have on the planet. 

Paper Tape Is Also Much Better For Gift Wrapping & Other Crafting

Here’s the thing about mass produced and cheap plastics like polypropylene, they’re not very durable and tend to be made from compounds that make them actually less suitable for the things we use them for.

However, paper tape creates a much stronger bond between parcel/paper and the tape itself. Think of how easily bits of a cardboard box tear off with the tape from an Amazon parcel that’s been sealed with paper packaging tape. This means two things for using paper tape. Firstly, you can get much smoother and tighter edges on any gift that you’re wrapping using paper tape and secondly, it makes paper tape much more tamper-proof. Perfect if you’ve got little ones who just love to try and take a sneak peak at their gifts under the tree.

How To Properly Apply Paper Tape When Wrapping Gifts

To properly apply paper tape when wrapping gifts, you need a good game plan that takes into account the various edges and corners of the present. By having one, you’ll be able to achieve a seamless finish, adding a touch of elegance to your gift.

Start off by preparing your materials; having pre-cut bits of tape in different sizes will save you time and make the process more efficient. To ensure the best results, use smaller bits of tape for corners and larger pieces for certain edges. This will provide a neat and secure seal, enhancing the overall presentation. When folding the wrapping paper around the gift, carefully press down the corners, then use a small piece of tape to secure them in place. This will help maintain the crisp lines and avoid any unsightly bulges. For larger edges, where the paper may need additional support, use longer strips of tape to create a strong bond. This will help the paper maintain its shape and prevent it from unravelling.
