5 cards using washi tape

Washi tape is relatively new to the crafting world, but it’s already become an essential in every stash. This decorative paper tape comes in a huge range of colours and patterns, so is great for adding an extra something to your projects. It can be used like regular tape to seal envelopes or stick things to your wall (it doesn’t damage the paintwork - hooray!), but it’s also great for jazzing up your cards. Here we show you five ways to use washi tape in your card designs.
