Our decorative sticky tape is one of our bestsellers - we have been selling it now for well over a year and a half and if anything, it's popularity has grown.

I started to produce it when the company in Germany I bought from, stopped selling it. I looked everywhere for a suitable alternative, couldn't find any anywhere so decided to design my own.

It took ages to find a suitable supplier here in the UK who could manufacture it to my specifications - 30 meter rolls rather than the standard 60m so I could sell it to trade at a sensible price and in 2 different widths.

Due to the volume we sell, we always have one or two rolls per box that aren't perfect - the tape is in perfect condition, just the inner core might be marked or scuffed. The 2nds rolls are a bestseller by far, as at £3.50(wide) and £2.75(thin) a roll it is such a good price.

We have put together a collection of festive tapes and have reduced the price even further as a little festive thank you - Just £16.50 for a set of 6 rolls of tape - that's 180 meters of sticky tape heaven and works out at only £2.75(wide) a roll! This offer is only available as long as stocks last - so get yours now, to avoid being disappointed.

Lots of you have ordered these festive tape sets and are available here but I am going to give away 1 set to a lovely follower. All you need to do, to be in with a chance of winning is
  • be a follower here on the blog or over on my facebook page and
  • tell me which current design is your favourite and
  • what NEW design you'd like to see amongst our tape ranges.

We have 17 fabulous designs to choose from in a selection of 4 colour ways. My favourite has always been the red and blue star tape but I'd love to know which is yours.

Just leave your comments and I will pick a winner early next week.

Red Stars for me too. So festive and cheery - for some reason they make me smile...

joy said...

of the christmas designs, my favourite is the tree, but of all the designs my favourite is country garden. perhaps you could add some flowers to your range for next year?
keep up the good work, and have a wonderful christmas, you certainly deserve a break x x

Jemima and the rose said...

I 'heart' your designs, its like being 5 again and peeking through a sweetie shop window at all the delicious colours and patterns! I could eat them all up!

Perhaps thats an idea for you (Like Willie Wonka) lickable, flavoured tapes :)

"You're turning Violet, VIOLET!"

I would be in my very happy place with your tapes and would be SO excited to use them on all my Christmas presents for loved ones! They would look SO scrummy yummy under the tree!! :)

Tis the season to be merry! :)
Merry Christmas & BIG dots and spots loves to all

Ps If I am lucky enough to win - any designs for me - they are all delicious! XXXXX

Sarah David said...

I am a sucker for stars, so that would have to be favourite too! And an idea for a new tape would have to be owls...again, i'm a sucker for them!

Helen said...

It's between the Christmas trees and the red starts - I can't decide!

I think a blue snowflake design would be really pretty for wrapping Christmas gifts x

Dinki Dots said...

Wow, I'd love a chance to win, and I'm a follower of your blog!

Hard to pick my favourite design, they are all so nice! Maybe the pink stars!

A new design could be polka dots with hearts.

Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win!

Claire said...

Hey Becky, gosh your range of tape is absolutely fabulous......being a chook lover, the red hens are my favourites followed by the love birds.

My suggestion for a new design would be something along the crafty line. Balls of wool and needles or sewing notions...needle and thread, thimble, buttons that sort of thing. I think it would look great and be very popular........


Charlotte said...

Morning, I love these tapes, have got the brown paper ready, so id love to win some of these pretty favourite is the pink cupcakes, and I love the blue/red combo on the Xmas present. Maybe a baby bottle/baby bonnet theme for a new range? Fingers crossed, thank you for including me
Happy Christmas!

Peony and Thistle said...

Ooh, so hard to choose which I like best.... but I think it has to be the blue beach huts! LOVE them....

I'd love to see a tape with some flowers - maybe a peony rose or even a thistle.....!

Thanks for this generous giveaway! Fingers crossed!

tamarajayne said...

I love the Christmas trees in the festive designs. I also love the bunting tape in any colour!

I'd love to see a row of pretty little bird houses on tape :)

Barbara said...

I also love all your designs and I'm always without a catalogue because I've given it away to someone.
I would really like some more narrow tapes for gift wrapping, and I love best the lime green colour ones as I usually wrap in Lime paper.
I came to your site because Paperchase stopped doing their multistripe design tape, so I think there's an opportunity there for a stripe tape using all your colours.

henny designs said...

Another follower and FB fan here and I love the red and white dotty one.
I guess I would love to see some colourful hippie flower power type tape because that is the sort I produce myself if I could. xxxx

gill said...

I love the red bunting tape!
Thanks for a great giveaway!

Roobarb said...

Hey Becky
What a lovely giveaway.
I must say my favourite tape has to be the beach huts!
And for another festive tape idea what about gingerbread men?

Tracey said...

thought i would dip in on my way out to get ready for the school christmas fair and of course was distracted y your lovely tapes, they all look gorgeous, lovre the birdie's with heartys the best...... better dash!

Mrs Bav said...

Choosing a favourite is very hard as I love them all. The stars are great because you can use them all year round and the sweetie tape is brilliant

Um maybe a gingerbread man and lady or some snowflake tape for next year.

April Daisies said...

Love the green Christmas trees Becky! Great for Christams presents with some brown paper. I;d love some Daisies, it would be perfect for wrapping my parcels

Judith said...

Hello Becky,
I love stars, dots and hearts, beach houses and flowers.
hmm and now my favorite one:
blue stars (-: (I think...)
or the green flowers
or the beach houses
or ...

You see, I can't choose - everything you design I really like!

Have a nice weekend!
Greetings from The Netherlands,

I LOVE the red hens tape, so cute and as I have 8 lovely hens very me!!

I would love to see a vintage style tape, so maybe a toile one in muted pinks and blues and then red for Christmas or a lovely vibrant 1950s style tape or a vintage stamps tape and a tape measure tape!!


Rosie maddocks said...

My favourite designs are your hens and little birdies, I love any designs with birds or hearts. I think perhaps a little check or a gingham would make a nice tape. I think this would work for Christmas or all year round. I think your tapes are fab! xx

Fotf said...

BuddingCrafter said...

I love the "We wish you a merry Christmas" so festive, but I also really like the black love birds tape...decisions decisions!
I would like to see a tape with diagonal lines across it, maybe in a couple of colourways so that you can mix and match, or maybe bees? Something different to add to your garden themed tape?
