What is Washi Tape?

Washi tape has been used worldwide for craft projects, home decor, card making, scrapbooking, paper facials, and even as a wallpaper for hard drives and laptops. In addition to the numerous uses that this incredible tape has, it also has a few unique characteristics that set it apart from all other regular paper tapes. One such feature is that washi tape features a permanent, brightly colored sticky backing that doesn’t peel or crumble away. The tape’s patterns and colors also remain intact, making it an excellent decorating and sealing tool.

Washi tape comes from the Japanese who use it to decorate everything from trees, to clothing, to household items, to stamps, to chopsticks! Washi tape comes in two different types, a white type, and a brown type. As its name implies, the brown type of washi tape can be used more explicitly to decorate things, whereas the white type was more intended for painting and decorating. Washi tape comes in a variety of colors, although they are not as vibrant as the bright colors found in many other forms of decor, such as paint or sticker paper.

One reason for washi tape’s popularity is its wide variety of colors. Washi tape comes in a large variety of colors, patterns, and textures, allowing crafters to express themselves freely in a wide array of colors and patterns that can truly be fun and beautiful. Many crafters who enjoy decorating with this wonderful craft find it very relaxing to do their favorite patterns and designs, knowing that no two pieces will ever be identical to each other in the process. For this reason, many people who enjoy washi tape as a craft find themselves drawn to it, especially those who love the available vibrant colors.
