Hello there! So what IS washi tape? Other, than, of course, super addicting stuff to play with! If you haven’t used washi tape yet, oh my my, let me tell you, once you get your hands on it, you will want to stick it EVERYWHERE! It is so much fun!
Ok, so dish it.. what is this washi tape anyway?
Often called wasabi tape by mistake, washi tape does originate from Japan, so we can see how the two terms are easily confused! But, washi tape has nothing to do with the spicy condiment that you eat with your sushi. The best way we can describe washi tape is that it feels like masking tape — very, very pretty masking tape. It’s made of paper, but is not as delicate as you would expect. Plus, it comes in patterns and designs that will make even the most dedicated crafters swoon and varying widths to allow you to create some fun and intricate washi tape designs.
Washi tape is typically made from natural fibers, such as bamboo or hemp, but most commonly from the bark of trees that are native to Japan — the mulberry, the mitsumata shrub or the gampi tree. Most washi tapes are strong (as strong as duct tape in some cases!) and functional as well as pretty, making them wonderful for both everyday and decorative use.
So, now that we all know what this wonderful stuff is, lets get on with todays super EASY project!
