Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape #129314

You have to be under a rock if you haven't noticed how popular Washi Tape has become of late. It's all over Pinterest, Etsy, Facebook, and certainly in every popular craft store on or off line. That includes Stampin' Up! of course.
Washi is a style of Japanese paper tape most commonly made using fibers from natural barks.
The word comes from wa meaning Japanese and shi meaning paper. It is used to describe paper made in the traditional manner regardless of where it's manufactured. Because it is natural it is much easier to work with. It holds pretty good, but is repositionable if you work with it slowly. It will stick to most surfaces without damaging effects.
I have used Washi tape more and more since SU introduced it in their new catalog. They currently have four different sets. (3 in a set). There are 5 yards of each design for $4.95. That's quite a bargain. I have used it to seal envelopes, wrap around bottle necks, wrapping, and card making. There are tons of uses.
