Bobbin Lace patterns - Tape lace

Tape lace is made up of a bobbin lace tape which bends to make a shape, and is usually connected in some way to previously worked parts of the tape. At various times, I have done various experiments, or tried to solve various problems, and sometimes I seem to have come up with patterns which have a certain affinity with tape lace. I must emphasise that these are not 'proper' tape lace. But they don't really belong anywhere else. I have also tried to make some proper tape lace, figuring out how to do it by myself. So the solutions may not be conventional.
