Watch out for Washi!

21 Apr

What is Washi you ask?

I’m so glad you did, because it’s my new obsession.

This multi-purpose adhesive tape is made of washi, which is handmade Japanese paper.   Think masking tape, but much cooler. It is easy to tear, write on, and remove – and so I’ve decided it’s the newest MUST have for adding (easy and cheap) color to your home decor.

Take a look at how versatile this stuff it!

I use clothespins ALL the time (something I picked up from my fiance actually).  They’re a great alternative to chip clips, especially when you can do THIS with them!

I love the idea of using these as little gift tags.  Who cares what you got the person, when the wrapping is so cute, right? 😉

Although I’m an Android user, I couldn’t resist posting this washi iPhone cover!

I’m thinking about using this tape for an upcoming frame project…  So since I’ve been in the market for some fun washi designs, I wanted to share with you some of my top picks so far!
