Washi Tape 101

Let’s see a show of hands. Who knew Washi Tape could be made from hemp? Which naturally leads me to wonder if one got hold of hemp Washi Tape, would it be edible? And what would happen if one ate a roll?

Washi was used in ancient times but now that Wal-Mart and Target carry the tape, it’s ours. From clothespins to cards to Easter eggs to Christmas ornaments to jewelry to...whatever. If we scrappers see an empty space anywhere – forget about bling or flowers. We’re adding Washi Tape!! 

Here’s my first Washi Tape card and I’d love to see yours. Is it possible to post a picture in your comment? If so, please post it. If not, include a link to your project.

Who has added Washi Tape to their list of addictions?

Decided to add a photo of my growing Washi Tape collection. Ain't it sweet?


  1. The problem with the Washi tape addiciton is there is soooo much choice - I cant stop with 1 or 2 or 17!! I love the way you used it on your card - great idea xx Michelle

  2. Ellen, the card looks great! I haven't gotten on the Washi tape wagon yet. I think that might be a good thing, though.

  3. Great use of Washi Tape Ellen! TFS

  4. This card is awesome, especially the sentiment! Love that!!
    I have recently purchased 6 washi tapes and have yet to use them. I'm trying to finish a couple of projects before I "play," LOL. :) I have been so tempted to buy more though, just because I know I will probably fall in love like everyone else has! :)

  5. LOVE the card. I haven't tried washi tape yet, but I've been seeing lots of people talk about it, might have to give it a try!

  6. Oh my! I haven't tried ripping it up like that yet. I know what I'm doing later! Gorgeous card, Ellen!
