Washi Tape Crafts book review, project, and announcement!

I received the book, Washi Tape Crafts, in exchange for this review. All opinions are 100% mine. This post may contain affiliate links.


I'm sure you are all familiar with washi tape, right?  Paper tape that comes in pretty designs which which you can decorate all sorts of stuff?  As usual, I'm late to the party because wow, I love this stuff now!  I wasn't sure about it though until I was asked to read/review Amy Anderson's book, Washi Tape Crafts.


Amy (of Mod Podge Rocks! fame) is a craft guru and I am not surprised that her book rocks, too!  It is filled with fun, sweet projects to jazz up your home, gifts, etc. The pictures are clear and the steps are easy to follow. I love that she includes a section in the beginning where she shares some basic tips, tricks, and techniques. Perfect for a novice taper such as myself!

The paperback edition comes with some cute rolls of coordinating tapes to get you started too.  Bonus!  I used those washi tapes to create some cheap but pretty desk accessories for Ellie. She is always carrying around and misplacing her drawing notebooks and pencils. I used a box and an old tin can, plus washi tape and the ideas I gleaned from Washi Tape Crafts to help her organize her things.

How cute are these?  She loves them too!



I found it adhered better when I overlapped each layer the slightest bit. Plus, be aware that the light colored tapes may be translucent and the material you are trying to cover may show through. I double wrapped those areas and that worked nicely!

Washi Tape Crafts would be a wonderful gift for a teen, teacher, or just anyone who is crafty.  I also think it is a great addition to your own library if you have kids or enjoy crafting yourself.

Now here is my announcement!  I'm so excited about it too.  I, along with these other amazing bloggers, will be co-hosting a link party!  Join us every Sunday night to link up your latest DIY, craft, recipe, or home project and to browse others' projects for new ideas!

See you on Sunday!
