Do you Washi (tape) ?

This time 8 days ago I was sitting in a pub beer garden chatting with friends and celebrating a birthday (not mine). As more alcohol was ingested, different topics were covered, and one of them was craft trends. I got everyone up to speed with the fact that this year chevrons, grey, yellow and washi tape are all ‘in’.

Yesterday I wondered how much of that stuff I actually have myself. I like to keep up to date with papercrafting trends, but unlike others I’m not on design teams so don’t get paid to use products or have freebies at my disposal. I have some papers with lots of grey in, especially from the huge box of stuff I bought when my beloved Sassafrass went back to designing for others, rather than creating their own product lines. I don’t have much yellow stuff, nor chevron print or shaped things. I only have one roll of washi tape.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE gazing at washi tape the most, but I never see myself buying any. I want a good mix, I don’t want to spend £4, or even £7 on a roll of tape, but at the same time I panic about buying an assortment on Etsy, and worry about feeling ripped off (excuse the pun).


Do you have a favourite place to buy your washi tape from? Any tips on how to make the most of it? Let me know and I’ll give it a go!
