Ep. 549 – Japanese Craft Books & Washi Tape

Scrap Time - Ep. 549 - Japanese Craft Books & Washi Tape

I admit, I am addicted to Washi Tape. So when I found these great Japanese books centered around ideas for washi tape I knew I had to have them!! There are so many cute ideas, and all so easy to make!!

I store all my Washi Tape in this box I got from Ikea. It is the perfect depth for the tapes and I can put the lid on it to stack another box (which I will be buying at Ikea tomorrow).

I made these cards using the washi tapes and an idea I got from one of the books! Although they are the same design, by using different combinations of tapes you get totally different looking cards! I am going to group some together to giveaway as a Christmas gift to my family.

And this is the Christmas version of the same card!

So where can you buy these books and washi tape? Well, thanks to the internet and International shipping, everything is available to us!!

I bought my books and some tapes at UGUiSU. My other favorite place to shop for washi tape is on Etsy! Just search for washi tape under Supplies. There are lots of sellers with a huge collection of tapes!! (I should know, I just place orders at 4 sellers last night.) Stamping Bella also has some Washi Tape on their site! And if you are in Toronto, The Paper Place just got a fairly large order in!!

      The Paper Place has them starting at $2.95 a roll. They still have a selection, so it may be worth a trip there. UGUiSU’s prices aren’t bad, but you are paying exchange and shipping. There is another Canadian source, but I haven’t ordered from them: http://www.omiyage.ca/ Otherwise, I put everything I like into my Etsy cart from all the sellers then buy it from the cheapest source. Again, you pay shipping and exchange, but so far I haven’t had to pay duties on any of my orders.

    Hi Christine,

    A rather silly question but where do you get your card bases? I’ve been looking for them EVERYWHERE.

    Thanks alot :)

      I make my card bases. I take an 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper and cut it in half – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. I then score it in half, making it a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card, also known as an A2.

    Hi there,
    I loved this video and was inspired to go and buy washi tape. Your collection is incredible!
    I was wondering, where did you get the stampers you used? I like the font on them and the style.

    Thank you,
    La

    I have purchased washi tape and other products from Omiyage in Toronto. They are reasonably priced and my order was receive in a couple of days. They were very professional.
