For an easier option:
Take strips of double-side tape, peel off one side of the backing paper on the tape and apply in rows to your fabric or chosen paper.
Then using a steady hand a pair of very sharp scissors, cut precisely around the strips of tape, so you are left with fabric backed tape. Reel your home-made tape around small sections of cardboard roll and tie with twist ties or ribbon to keep the tape secure on the roll. TA Dah!!!!! How easy is that?????
Embossed Washi tape:
This tape is on tissue paper and is made by stamping and embossing tissue paper then sticking to double sided tape and cutting as above. See links for instructions.
