What in the world is washi tape? Well, let me just say be ready to make space in your craft room.

Washi tape originated from Japan. It’s made of paper, but is not as delicate as you would think. It comes in patterns, colors and designs that will make your inner crafter hyper-ventilate. It comes in varying widths to allow you to create some fun and intricate washi tape designs, too. Guess the easiest way to describe washi tape, it feels like masking tape only really pretty.

Washi tape is very versatile in a multitude of art and craft categories. With a lift and re-stick ability you can position and reposition till it is perfectly placed.

The first project I want to share with you, uses insulin cartridges. So not only washi tape use but a re-purpose project, too.

Now these journals and pencils covered by kittykill, with washi tape can be used for all ages. They would even make nice gifts for teachers.
