Washi tape is decorative paper tape which comes in all kinds of amazing patterns and colors, from lettering to stripes to flowers to cats to skulls. The glue isn't especially strong until it dries so it's easy to move around until you're satisfied with placement so you don't tear whatever you're applying it to.
Some things you can do with washi:
- Add a decorative seal to envelopes
- Use in scrapbooking
- Make a decorative frame for art on your wall
- Decorate decor or furniture
- Label your electronic cables
- Decorate a bookmark
- Decorate your planner or other school supplies
- Make toothpick flags to decorate baked goods or drinks
Since there aren't a lot of stores that sell goth-appropriate washi all year around I was very excited to pick up some Halloween patterns at Michaels that I could use all year.
My current favorites are these black and white colors. All of them except for the large black and white diagonal stripe are from Michaels. My favorite is that narrow black and white bat variety, which came packaged with a black and white spider web washi pictured above for $4.
Here's a better picture of my favorite so far, this script washi from Michaels.
