Washi Tape

posted on 03/22/10 at To Be Charmed "{ and the the winner is… }
Congratulations are in order to Mary Beth! She’s won a 5 pack of her choice of Japanese Washi tape from Happy Tape. Thanks so much to everyone for entering! I can’t wait to see what Mary Beth does with her tape! Also, thanks so much to Happy Tape for this generous giveaway!"

WHAAAAT?!!!
SHUT.UP. ...I am just giddy! I actually won something!!! I have been wanting some of this pretty stuff (Japanese Masking Tape) for quite a while but since I hadn't yet picked out a project (yeah, like I usually wait for that...), I hadn't bought any. ...but mostly because I just couldn't settle on a color combination. Thank you! Thank you!, "To Be Charmed" and "Happy Tape"! What a delightful item to win! Here's a few projects that I've collected...

DIY instructions from Family Circle as to how they decorated the eggs: (posted at To Be Charmed)

Use washi tape that is at least 1/2 inch wide. Create a collage of patterns by tearing small pieces of any length and covering egg. Press out any air bubbles before attaching next piece of tape. For the best effect, vary the placement of the tape. Repeat the same color and pattern to create an overall design or mix and match patterns for a patchwork effect.

Here's some pretty ideas that I have bookmarked. Washi Tape is thinner than American masking tape, easily tears and is remvable from slick surfaces. Isn't it just pretty in a stack? Oh, the plans that are swirling around in my little ole brain...
Off to choose my colors... !
