Fabric Deco tape

I can't bear to part with the teensiest scraps of fabric, so last night I had a lovely hour with one of my boxes of scraps and a roll of double sided sticky tape!Used some on a recycled spice jar too!
I'm covering a sweetie tin next!
I haven't done a tutorial as it's so easy, just cut a length of tape, peel the backing off one side and stick your fabric strips to it.
I trim off the excess after I've stuck it to the tape.
Just googled it so here's a link to a lovely tutorial done with single pieces of fabric, not scraps
Have a lovely day!
