Again, I’m pretty late to the game, but with the opening of the new idee craft store in the shopping center nearby, I finally splurged on some washi tape. I bought my self 3 rolls and then proceeded to fall in love with this stuff immediately. Why didn’t I try this sooner?! I went back today and bought myself 2 more rolls.
You can do all sorts of wonderful things with washi tape! Here are some of the things I’d like to try!
- Add it to plain plastic cups to make them more fun! (Craft & Creativity.com)
- Make cool gift tags (by Tara @ The Tiny Hummingbird)
- Make cute mini bunting – (like this cute seller does on Etsy!)
- Embellish wrapping (à la erinzam)
AND, my favorite so far, is making tiny toothpick flags!
I’ve made more than I can count…what can I say…I’m pretty obsessed!
I’m not sure about the colors yet (I may need an excuse to buy more washi tape!) but I am planning on using these as cupcake toppers for our wedding. That’s right – we’ve decided to make cupcakes in lieu of a big cake. It’s easier to manage (plus, my mom is a pro when it comes to baking large batches of cupcakes), and it’s a nice tip of the hat to my American culture and I’m sure our German guests will love it.
Moral of the story: if you haven’t tried this stuff yet, go out and buy yourself a roll! Trust me, you won’t regret it!
