Today we are talking about all things Japanese masking tape!!  Have you seen the wonder and beauty of this product??  The patterns are amazing and the colors…..anyhoo I’m going to post to some crafty links using this fantastic product and where YOU can get it and start having fun!

Over at The Red Thread, there is an awesome tutorial showing you how to make a mini bunting.  I had just as much fun reading the tutorial as I did looking at the pictures of all the tape stacked up!

Lacy Easter egg

Even though Easter is over, Family Circle posted a whole tutorial on how to decorate easter eggs in different ways.  One of those was this lovely creation using the tape!  Even though Easter has passed, these would be great for breakfast in bed for your sweets or your mom (hint hint).  I think any time of the year, this would be a gorgeous idea to spruce up any day.

Japanese Washi Tape and EntertainingElizabeth over at To Be Charmed has really outdone herself!  She has multiple pages of pictures and directions on how to use the washi tape in different ways.  There’s cupcake flags, how to cover plates, vases, serving dishes, the list goes on and on.  You will be lost in the sea of awesome ideas she has on this tape (and a lot of other things I might add-you could get lost on her blog in general!)

So!  Intrigued?  Loving this washi tape?  Here are some links on where you can get it so you can start making away!

Pretty Tape : the title pretty much says it all but there are other great supplies to check out here!

Nothing Elegant : lots of cute kawaii stuff too!

Downtown Fabrics : there’s a sale going on right now on lots of things and they ship from the USA if you’re worried about postage (and you can’t wait that long to play with your tape!)

Washimatta : ok, seriously, they have Hello Kitty! Liberty of Japan fabric…what?!

Cute Tape : has a ton of other things besides tape that you will want to spend ALL of your money on.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Well, I hope these links will get you inspired to try something new and create something fun with tape of all things!
