I have a new fetish – japanese washi tape. I’ve always had a thing for stationery, in particular Japanese stationery. Washi tape is a masking tape that comes in a range of colours and patterns – stripes, polka dots, grids or plain . It is easy to tear by hand, write on and doesn’t leave any tackiness behind after removal and can even be used again and again. Washi tape is translucent making it pefect for layering. It is ideal for colour coding, labelling, gift wrapping and collages. You can buy rolls and rolls of it on etsy and also at happy tape, cute tape. paper nation. This collector’s guide is for hardcore fans.
So apart from looking at it what can you do with it? Here are my favourites:

Twist tie seen at Zakka Life
