my scandinavian home: Give-away: Washi Tape

Give-away: Washi Tape

Tuesday, 12 June 2012

Hejsan! When I was in Tokyo last week I picked up some pretty Japanese Washi tape and I'm giving-away four reels of this to one of my wonderful readers! Washi tape is traditionally made from paper and is slightly translucent and is decorated with pretty colours and patterns. It's a fab way to put pictures up on a wall or use in arts and crafts....

  2. Great idea Nikki,
    Japanese tape is just such a versatile design tool, I love making taped frames around photos on my wall. MT web site has whole gallery of artwork made of tape. Absolutely stunning!
    PS. So jealous of your amazing trip :)

  4. Apart from all other creative uses, I have an obsessive compulsive need to stick messages and small notes on walls, doors, cabinets (got it from my mother) and washi tape just makes it more fun and pretty :)

  12. Washi tapes are one of the most amazing inventions in the papercraft world, I still don't understand why is it not massively imported to northern europe :D It'd sell well~

    They´re really inspiring, specially when writing regular letters/ sending packages to friends overseas, a washi tape is amazing to funk-up packages.

    Hej do!

  14. Hi,
    Thanks for the chance to win. Glad you had a good trip! I wasn't sure about it...until I got a roll and now think it's brilliant! I'd love more rolls but they are pretty expensive in the UK.

  15. I love tape so much. At first I bought just a few rolls and I loved looking at their patterns, peeling a little off to stick somewhere. Adding tape to something instantly brightens the object and gives it that little bit extra that is always hard to find. Now I have a small drawer full of tapes and I am always on the hunt for my next addition!

  19. I was about to comment anyway... I love washii tapes. They are so versatile-you can make pictures with them or make pictures pop out. I'd never thought I'd want to use sticky tape to put pictures up, but these are truly the cutest. And I'm planning to use them in wrapping gifts too.. little color to plain brown bag for example :)

  33. Hi Niki, I'm 'officially' following your blog now, although it's one of my favs, so I check it regularly anyway. I've been meaning to buy some washi tape to use in my daughter's room. I want to help her create a picture wall with all her favourite magazine cut outs and post cards she collects.

    I love your latest blog posting on Waterfall Bay House. I'm from New Zealand, but the east coast of the North Island. I hope you get to visit one day, it's a beautiful country. x

  34. i'll use the washi tapes to decorate my apt, tape pictures and stuff to the wall :)

  35. I love washi tape! I have been working on building my collection and love using it on everything from taping things to the wall to decorating glass jars and vases with it.

    I've been reading your blog for a while now and I love the homes that you feature on here :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm following! Added you to my blog roll as well :)
    Would absolutely love to win some washi tape!
    I love all the different colours and graphic patterns,
    and I think washi tape is a brilliant way to bring some
    crazy colour into my my home.

  37. Why I love washi . . . oh let me count the ways. Seriously, this post would never end if I were to count them, but foremost (for this week anyway) Washi tape allows me to be my wishiest-washiest best self. It's all about changing things up. This weeks it's some Ikea glass jars in my cupboard. Rather than paint them with chalk paint I just wrapped them with a dash of colored tape, labeled what's in the jars right on the tape, and now can change them out any time I feel like it (or not, if I don't feel like it, as well--why else would they be called washi[y]?).

  38. One more reason to go to Japan - Washi tape ! :) I've never owned any so to win some would be great! Greetings from Finland!

  39. I love washi tape, I heard about it first from Hello Sandwich, it satisfies the fancy paper swapping nostalgia in me. I bought some from Cath Kidston but gave them to my niece - gimme :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Washi tape is great! Not only is it an adhesive but you can use it to decorate envelopes, wrapping paper and other nifty things to give to other and make them happy.
    I like the it's reusable and that there are a boatload of designs!

  41. I have one washi tape and I use it for just everything. It makes my day and everything around me happy, but unfortunately it is way too expensive to buy in the Netherlands for a student. The dots and stripes are really beautiful, so I love to win them.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love using washi tape for my smash book! It's a great addition to a picture or the edges of a page. The different patterns really can transform a picture

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think washi tape is such a fun way to hang up pictures that you know don't have a permanent spot in the house but you want to enjoy for the time being! Simple and beautiful!
