Have you heard of washi tape? This is one of the latest crazes in crafting that brings a lot of color into any project you're working on. Washi tape is actually made from Japanese rice paper. It has several great features that make it a good choice for arts and crafts.
First and foremost, it comes in just about any color and pattern you can imagine. From bold neon colors to rich jewel tones or light pastels, you can typically find washi tape that goes perfectly with the project you have in mind. When it comes to patterns, there's everything from polka dots and stripes to checker boards and abstract prints. These offer an even more eye-catching way to incorporate washi tape into your art projects.
Beyond their colorful nature, washi tapes are also quite easy to use. They can be torn by hand and can be repositioned multiple times while maintaining a good grip. Washi tape is also versatile in that is can be applied to paper, walls and other objects. The surface is printable, so you can write on it to create fun messages or draw your own designs on top. The tape itself is also semi-transparent, so many users create cool effects by layering the tape to create different color schemes and patterns.
Here are just some of the unique ways washi tape can be used:
- Marking and labeling
- Artistic projects
- Color coding and identification
- Holding, banding, bundling, and binding
- Hand labeling
- Picture framing
- Decorative accents
- Gift wrapping
