Well.. I don’t know about you, but I am a collector and subsequent hoarder of pretty things – including Washi Tape. Washi Tape is just too cute. And I just have to have it. All of it. So I buy Washi Tape. I ooh at it. And then the it lands in my drawer. Then what? It stays there. Every so often, I take the Washi Tape out and ooh at it’s prettiness. No more. From now on, I shall CRAFT with my Washi Tape. And to help you and me along.. I have create a little round up of what sort of pretty things you can create! Here are some of my Washi Tape Crafts favourites! Hooray. I have also created a Washi Tape Ideas pinterest board, which I will be adding too on a regular basis. Washi Tape Crafts - I LOVE Washi Tape and am always looking out for new and fabulous Washi Tape Crafts & Ideas, here are some fantastic ones!

FYI: To those of you that don’t know Washi Tape – it is self adhesive tape – like cello tape with a pretty pattern on the back.

PS remember that Washi Tape comes in all colours, designs and sizes… so replace the “pretty cute” ones, with boy colours and designs and all of the below can easily be adapted for the men in your life (well.. almost all..).

And… if you cannot get hold of any washi tape – go visit the Aesthetic Nest for this lovely How to Make Washi Tape.
