I had an Etsy order for some lily of the valley, and the customer requested that I use a light green floral tape. No problem.
So I went to the store to get it, and they didn't have any. Neither did the three other stores I went to. Well great, now what?
I decided to try to color some white tape, not knowing if that would work or not. Turns out that you can brush powder color onto the tape and it will still work just fine.
I used some Crystal Colors in orchid for this, and brushed a long length of white floral tape with the color. Then I wrapped the stems the usual way, and it gave me a light green stem. Done.
