Washi Tape Crafts: 110 Ways To Decorate Just About Anything by Amy Anderson - Book Review





About The Book:

It’s the definitive washi tape craft book for adults. Washi tape—the Japanese decorative paper tape that’s easy to tear, peel, stick and re-stick—is transformative, fun, and remarkably easy to use. It’s also never been hotter. Now comes the only adult washi tape craft book packaged with the tape itself—ten rolls, with 18 feet in each roll—making it a complete kit and outstanding value.

Packed full of amazing projects and ideas, it’s the book and tape kit that shows all the ways to be creative with washi tape. The book includes techniques: precision tearing, wrapping, and weaving. How to make bows, rosettes, and other shapes. How to seal and weatherproof designs to make them permanent. And 110 projects, with color photographs and step-by-step instructions, from custom photo frames to one-of-a-kind gifts. The possibilities are endless.




My Thoughts:

Hi, my name is Sharon and I'm a washi tape addict!  (At least that's what my husband thinks!) 

I love washi tape - that lovely thin "masking" tape that you can use for just about anything!  So imagine my delight to find a book of 110 ideas on how to use washi tape, plus it comes with 10 of the cutest little rolls of washi!

Author Amy Anderson gives easy-to-follow instructions on charming projects in this chunky little book that is also filled with gorgeous photography of each project!  She also gives a little background on where washi tape originated (in Japan) and how it is best used and the tools that make using this fabulous product a little easier! 

This is one of the most complete book of craft ideas that I've run across in a long time.  I highly recommend it to any crafter (or fellow washi addict!) who want a few new and exciting ideas using the beautiful washi tapes available.

Here is a little closer look at some of the little washi tapes that were included with the book. They are tiny, but there is a lot of tape on each roll.  Enough to get your washi tape addiction ... I mean collection ... started
