I love my packing tape dispenser for mailing packages. It has my name on it because it was my constant companion when I helped my mother-in-law pack up and move last spring. I'm so attached to this particular one that I wanted to make sure it always came home with me.
I'm always looking for the simplest ways to add imagery, color, and pattern to the books we make in workshops. My goal is always to avoid thinking and planning. I love that the packing tape provides such a straightforward way to attach natural and found materials. I am going to replace this dispenser with individual rolls with built-in dispensers for workshops as this one can be tricky to get the hang of if you're not used to it.
