Wonderful Washi Tape

Have you fallen for washi tape yet? Crafters and DIYers have found so many creative uses for this Japanese tape made from handmade paper.

Available in a variety of colours, patterns and prints, washi tape can transform gift wrapping, paper crafts, wedding and party accessories, and even simple decor items.

Apartment Therapy posted a fun collection of ideas for decorating with washi tape, including everything from DIY wall art, to an easy vase makeover featured on A Creative Mint.

How About Orange posted two fun vases in her signature colour – the variations are amazing, inspiring and – best of all – temporary, so you can change things up to suit your style or the season. This is a fun option for winter months, when you may not be able to find your favourite blooms.

Because of its new found popularity, you don’t need to take a trip to Japan to pick up a few rolls. Major craft stores and art supply stores have made washi tape a regular part of their rotation.

Online paper shop Omiyage has an amazing selection (plus other fun Japanese paper supplies) and Etsy is loaded with cool patterns and colours.
