Washi tape, or Japanese masking tape, seems to have endless crafty and decorative uses, doesn’t it? I’ve used mine to decorate envelopes and gift wrap, tape up photos to the wall, display on inspiration boards, create tiny pennant flags, and decorate the border of my white picture frames, to name a few – but I am always on the lookout for new ways with this favorite craft material. I recently discovered Lena’s beautiful blog from Norway, called KonfettiForm, and I was struck by the many creative uses she has found for this little obsession so many of us share. Let’s take a look at a few of my favorite ideas from Lena:
+ Use neatly trimmed pieces to create pretty personalized labels for your journals, binders or file folders.
+ Tear off small pieces to use as page flags, folding the tip back on itself so the bit that hangs over the edge is not sticky.
+ Create glass markers for your next party by wrapping a piece of washi tape around the stem of each wineglass, trimming a notch in the edge to create a pennant look, and using a marker to label.
Lena’s site offers up much more inspiration beyond washi tape crafts – I also loved the views of her studio, shown above and below, along with her design and decor finds :)
In addition, Lena runs a lovely new shop selling washi tape offering a great range of colors and patterns. Do you have any favorite ways with washi tape? Any craft ideas to share?
I hope you are having a good week so far, my dear ones! xo Laura
