What Is Washi Tape?

To put it simply, washi tape is a high quality masking tape made of rice paper.

But more than that, washi tape is a material which is beautiful yet useful at the same time. You can tear it, stick it, reposition it, write on it… The low tack adhesive makes it extremely easy to use (and reuse). I think it is so popular because it is so easy to use – and looks good while doing it!

I used some of the ideas above when making my Christmas presents. Every year I want to make handmade gifts, but never get the time to. For Christmas 2012, I decided I’m going DIY! All the gifts were made by hand (including Relish, and mini Spekboompies we planted) and I used washi tape to decorate the parcels and also to decorate the pencils and clips.Usually these rolls go for about R35 to R40, but Snap n Scrap regularly have them on special for R28 each.

I hope after reading this post, you can’t wait to get your hands on some tape. So to get you started, we have some rolls to give away!

 

Snap-n-Scrap Scrapbooking & Crafts gave us 3 beautiful rolls to give away to one lucky reader!
