Ahhh... washi tape. I read about it for the past year or so, without really knowing what it was. I mentioned it to my husband and he said "um... why is called 'washi'... isn't it just decorative tape?" Well, yes it is. I know it originated in Japan, but luckily it has become widespread enough that you can now find it at the best place on earth, Target.
I store mine in an old pickle jar. Because, well why wouldn't you? Anyway, I made this easy-peasy little tape garland for the new office mantle, and I love it. Plus, it was free (aaaaand so is every single project I've been mentioning lately!).
I used twine as the "base," but you could use ribbon, yarn, anything really. Just flip the tape over the twine, stick it together and cut it off with a triangular indention.
Easy, right? What do you think? Have used 'washi' tape before? Have you seen any cool projects using it?
