If you haven't yet been introduced to washi tape, I can't wait to share it with you! Washi tape is a japanese style decorative masking tape. It's a super cute, fun way to add a bit of extra color and pattern to your paper crafts.
I find myself reaching for it whenever I need a bit of tape - to seal a package, stick a reminder on the wall, or tape something together - because isn't this so much more fun than clear scotch tape??
One way I love to use washi tape is to decorate plain white envelopes.
Try making a frame around the addresses, or a border around the whole envelope. Experiment with cutting the tape at different angles to create interesting shapes.
Another fun thing to do with washi tape is to tape a letter inside of a card, so that your recipient can reuse the card and send it on to someone else. You can tape a cute sticker inside, too!
The washi tape removes easily, and doesn't leave residue on the paper.
How do you like to use washi tape?
