mad for washi.
i don’t exactly remember when washi tape made its way into my life. i seem to recall seeing it here and there on craft blogs, and then i used some for a photo shoot i was styling, and ever since that moment, i’ve been hooked. japanese washi tape is so simple, and yet it’s kind of elegant, like a lot of japanese design. and it’s so pretty! so i’m a little mad for it, and i order it from etsy all the time. or i bought some in paris at mercí (that cute one below with the little green, red & yellow polka-dots). or i’ve been given washi as a gift because people know i love it (thank you, katrina). so this is my little ode to washi tape.
i use it to seal the little glassine envelopes i stuff with my temporary tattoo business cards*. and i use it to tape stuff to the fridge, to my my walls, and to hang up artwork, and to seal special envelopes full of secrets. what do you use it for? i’d love to hear your ideas, since i seem to have an abundance of it.
* if you’d like some temporary tattoos, send me an email and i’ll instruct you where to send a self-addressed-stamped-envelope, and i’ll gladly mail some out to you!
