Get Creative With Washi Tape

I must confess I had never heard of Washi tape until I started seeing it on Pinterest and I am so thankful I did! These beautiful tapes originated in Japan and are made of papers made from using plant fibers such as bamboo, hemp, rice, wheat, the bark of the gampi tree or the paper mulberry. It then has acrylic glue added to it and becomes a product similar to masking tape because it can be removed from most any surface. There are so many creative ways it can be used and it comes in an abundance of beautiful designs. A quick google search will yield many sources for purchasing this beautiful tape. The tape averages about five dollars a roll and of course there are deals to be had if you search for them. I gathered some of my favorite ideas from Pinterest to get your creative juices flowing.
