Washi Tape: Inspiration and a Giveaway!

Washi Tape Project


So recently I've become obsessed with slightly interested in Washi Tape. If you haven't heard about it yet you are in luck. Today's post is about all things Washi:

What is it?: Washi Tape is Japanese decorative tape. It is becoming more and more popular and it can be used on paper, glass, ceramic, and plastic...just to name a few. If you type in "Washi Tape Projects" into either Google or Pinterest you will find hundreds of creative ideas on how to use the tape.

Where do I find it?: If you want it in your hot little hands today, I've heard it is available at both Target and Michael's (although I didn't see any at Michael's when I was last there). There are also a number of places where you can purchase the tape online. If you don't need it today, I would suggest going online. The brick and mortar stores don't have a large supply and the options are limited.

One of my favorite online Washi Tape retailers is Cute Tape. They have a HUGE supply of Washi Tape as well as other decorative tape, stamps, twine and much more. And because they are so awesome they are doing a giveaway today for your very own Washi Tape Starter Kit! More on that later...

What can I do with it?: So now you're thinking, "This stuff looks cool but what can I do with it?" Well I'm so glad you asked! Below are a few projects that I've found. Click on the link below each picture to learn how to do these as well as to check out the other great projects on each of these blogs.  I hope they inspire you!
