Washi tape, a decorative tape

Washi tape is a decorative tape from Japan. You can find them in shops that sell paper goods, like Tokyu Hands and Loft. To get a hold of the tape outside of Japan, Ive seen them on Ebay and Amazon. In Sweden I know craft shop Panduro sells them.

The look of the tapes vary a lot. There can be anything from a singular colour to advanced patterns and illustrations. The type of glue that is used makes it easy to attach and re-attatch on most objects.

A tape with many uses

You can use washi tape for endless different projects, its only your imagination that stops you. Here I have used washi tape on pebbles I found on a beach and now I have decorative stones with beautiful patterns.

Ive also used it to decorate clothespins, my keys, one of my scrapbooks, my iPad case and a couple of plastic bookends.
