JAPAN'S LATEST ART SUPPLY HAS US CRAZY FOR CRAFTS

Oct 17, 2013

Japan's Latest Art Supply Has Us Crazy for Crafts

Anything that makes everyday tasks a little cuter is always a plus in our book--which is why we've been stockpiling washi tape, a Japanese paper-based tape that is as strong as duct tape but looks way, way prettier. Last-minute gift wrapping, labeling, and book repairs become instantly more glamorous thanks to a little washi tape, which comes in every color of the rainbow as well as insanely stylish patterns like pastel florals and preppy checks.

It's also become a favored craft supply thanks to its versatility and inherent cute factor. With Halloween just around the corner, we're itching to try this (easy!) washi tape pumpkin decor, and love the idea of a custom washi tape-embellished serving tray for the holidays. Check out the slideshow above for a few fun washi craft ideas to try at home--some for kids and some for you!
