Ten Extra Creative Ways to Use Washi Tape

 From the Desk of Clearissa’s Command Center/Divinely Organized 

I am late for the party. I missed the boat. I am a slow bloomer. Sad…right?  Well I am finally in the know. Did you know about washi tape? Don’t judge me. 🙂 Yes I knew it existed but I had never used it for any project. I had never even purchased a role until 2-weeks ago. But now I am a convert. You can find some really cute colors of washi tape here.

I happened to be doing some DIY supply shopping at one of the signature DIY stores and the washi tape was on one of the isle caps. There were so many pretty colors and the price was right. So I bought 6 of 3 different colors. After getting it home, I went into a project coma. In my mind’s eye, I came up with all sorts of different ways to use this stuff. And then I did a little research.

My research showed some of the most creative ways to use this tape. Some of the ways Washi tape is used truly floored me. I have listed 10 of the best or most creative uses below. I only have 10 ideas listed but do know the list below is only the tip of the iceberg.
