Remember a few years ago, we all bought like 90 rolls of Japanese washi tape because the internet said so? I know I wasn’t the only one with the ungodly obsession with the stuff. I mean, it IS freaking adorable and surely has a billion uses, but ohmygah it lasts forever.
I love the tape, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that I’ve been using it to seal up Etsy packages, to decorate my
spy notebooks journals, to wallpaper dollhouse rooms, to cover magnets and on and on, but the stupid rolls never get any smaller. It’s like Willy Wonka met up with a crafty Japanese tape inventor and created The Everlasting Washi Tape. Corny ramblings aside: IT NEEDS TO END NAO.
I was fiddling around with my stash earlier and found a few new uses I haven’t seen on Pinterest. This is a big deal you know. I don’t want to get all Ranty McRanterson and start bashing Pinterest again, but it has pretty much ruined my creative life and finds new ways to crush my spirit of originality daily. I’m dancing dangerously close to the edge of the emo cliff, so let’s just get to the point:
WASHI TAPE BOWS!
I AM ORIGINAL! I MADE SOMETHING OUT OF TAPE THAT I MAKE OUT OF NEARLY EVERY OTHER MATERIAL KNOWN TO MAN, BUT I AM ORIGINALLLLL!
Whoaaaa, slow down there, happy pants. Didn’t you forget a little thing called Google image search?
Just to name a few examples.
So all that to say…
