Washi Tape, Do You Need It?

Have you ever wondered what the purpose of washi tape is? Or why it’s such a hit on the social media platform. Let’s find out!

What Exactly is Washi Tape?

Washi tape is a kind of decorative masking tape utilized across the craft industry to give items an additional dose of sweetness and shine. Washi tape is traditionally sold on short spools and has a low adhesiveness, making it ideal for use in paper crafts and bullet journals. Washi tape was developed in Japan.

Uses for Washi Tapes:

There are many ways that you can use washi tape. Here are three of the most creative ones!

Art Books:

Artsy books are a solid favorite among mixed media enthusiasts; they provide the ideal chance to forget the conventional constraints and limitations of a card or layout and let you spew out your creative ideas on a page. There is no right or wrong way to make an art book page, and Washi is ideal for adding depth, annotating, and fastening pieces of art altogether.


You may add a sense of creativity to household trinkets and accessories by customizing them using Washi. As you can see in the picture, Lou has given this ordinary candle more individuality by adhering two short strips of Washi tape to its wick; this is a fantastic idea for presents. Not only that, but she has also attached it to her keys to give them a cool appearance.

Greeting Cards:

Washi tape may also be used to make greeting cards that are one-of-a-kind and personalized, much as it can be used to construct gift bags. You can buy a card and dress it up yourself, or you could construct one yourself out of colored cardboard, for instance. Your card may already have a unique look by just adhering a few single strips of tape to its surface. The design does not need to be very elaborate.
