Washi tape

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

I do not know if you are familiar with Washi tape. Washy tape is a type of tape made from rice paper that was initially only made in Japan.

Now a days you can buy it in a lot of crafting stores. Washi tapes can be printed with really lovely adhesive tape designs. The tapes can easy be torn by hand but are extremely robust and hard wearing. The best is that you can remove them completely and use them several times. This means that even the little ones can use them easily!

The reason why they are a hit in all the crafting stores at the moment is because they are very versatile. They can be used to decorate and give a personal touch to anything you can think off. They can be used on envelopes, cards, vases, picture frames, windows, furniture…

You can basically let your creative self free!

Here you can see some of the cute designs that you can find:

Here you can see what I did with some Washi tape that I bought in modes4you

I had this table from IKEA that was very cheap but not so special. With the washi tapeĀ  I gave it a more original look!

And here you can see what I did with my EXPEDIT bookshelf from IKEA
