washi tape

everyone loves washi tape, right? (right?!) so i thought i'd show a few of the ways i've been using it lately. 

above is a little peek at the card i've made for mothers day, just layering up strips of different coloured washi tape as a background layer, and below i used a few strips of a thinner striped tape to jazz up the only vase (ahem, empty coffee jar) that i have! 
 



i bought the cute star hole punch a few weeks ago, and had a go at making little washi tape stars- these are great as stickers if you stick the tape to an adhesive label, and i've even been sticking these on my nails for some uber easy nail art.

this might seem like a slightly odd one, but as i'm gluten free j and i have to use a lot of separate kitchen utensils- anything covered in washi tape is for gluten free cooking only!

and finally, some amazingly fun circus themed tape from tiger, used to recycle an empty tub for my bedside table. i love how this turned out and think it's a great way to recycle- i'll definitely be doing this one more often :)

i know i've seen blog posts and pinterest posts on the many uses of washi tape, so if you've got any other suggestions i'd love to hear them!

  3. I'm about a month late to the game, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the star cutouts idea! I have collected a fair bit of washi tape lately so I'm always looking for ways to incorporate it into little things beyond just packaging. Great ideas!
