Washi Tape


                                                       WISHI WASHI

When Stampin' Up came out with a line of Washi Tape I, of course, had to have some.  I didn't know what it was, but still had to have it.  Then at Convention last July they gave us some more.  I had decided I would use it to embellish my cards but when I tried that I wasn't happy with the results - somehow, it was too "see through". I tried putting it on the back of those decorative bags and wasn't thrilled with that look either.I have about 8 different patterns and there it sits, alone and lonely, on a rack in the craft closet.  I look at it - kind of like a monkey pondering a math puzzle - and close the closet.  So, Pinterest to the rescue.  I can spend more time 'browsing' and pinning... wow.  Anyway, here's what I've decided to do today - for you - and for me!  It's ALL ABOUT WASHI.... drum roll, please....

What is Washi Tape?

Washi paper tape was developed by a Japanese masking tape company back in 2006 in response to demand from local artists. It is strong, thin, and less sticky than regular tape, and colorful and artistic, which makes it ideal for all sorts of crafting.
USES FOR WASHI - OTHER THAN 'the obvious' card trims

As long as they don't overlap, I love the mix and match with colors & patterns

Makes these files look very spiffy

If these were all different, it would be a means of finding one's glass - at least for a while *wry smile*

easy storage for your washi - better than alone in a dark closet :-)

I think those utensils are really cute 

try this on some of those dollar store vases to pep them up!


Coordinate your party theme.

These are just popsicle sticks and the flowers cut out of images from Webster's Pages - how cute!!!

You'd better know your keyboard - oh, wait, the letters are on there!


I like this idea too - especially for those envelopes that just don't want to lick closed properly.  Stick it down with decorative washi.... yay.

And, last but not least, the award for the "Patience of a Saint" goes to this entry :-)

I hope you've enjoyed some of these ideas and found a few you hadn't already thought of...

See you soon and thanks for stopping by....
