I am just mad for decorative tape, although I never felt justified in purchasing a roll of the novelty versions I had seen in stores – if I am exerting the effort to post a package, I am certainly not spending addition time and creative energy in lavishly decorating the mailing box – that dedication is allocated to the gift.

The decorative borders created a visual pop and a cohesive polished appearance.
