What to do with Washi tape

Oh my goodness there are many ways you can use washi tape. I’m super inspired! Washi is a kind of japanese paper. Washi is commonly made using fibers from the bark of the gampi tree, the mitsumata shrub, or the paper mulberry, but also can be made using bamboo, hemp, rice, and wheat. (See more on Wiki.)

I also found a local online shop where tape is cheaper than in stores! Check out Washi Tape here.

To get yourself in the mood of creativity, here are some ideas.
