Let’s Talk Tape: Washi Tape

While duct tape is, of course, my favorite, there are several other types of tapes that are fun for crafting. One of those is Washi Tape. I HAVE some Washi Tape but in order to describe it to you, I had to do a little research into what it actually is.


As you might guess from the name, it originally came from Japan. Washi itself is a type of paper, made by hand in a traditional way. It can be made from the bark of different types of trees, most of these being trees that are usually found specifically in Japan.

So, therefore, Washi Tape is tape made from paper. It is thin and slightly transparent but comes in tons of cool designs with endless crafting possibilities.

I haven’t done a lot of projects with Washi Tape yet, but here are some sites to check out for more info!

If you want to purchase some, here is just one of many great sites: Wishy Washi Tape.
