  2. I have always loved following your site! You have inspired me to create my own blog! I just put Washi tape on my planner and love it!!!

  3. um…. GENIUS!! All of the ideas! Thank you for sharing!! I work in a school, different washi prints for each teacher to mark their brushes, pens, chargers is another great use! 

  4. So many creative washi tape ideas especially the business cards… unique! Michaelann, some washi tapes don’t stick very well especially the end parts. So far mt tape is pretty good in terms of quality and stickiness. Although I’ve yet to try, I read that mod podge/gel medium can help. If you have, maybe you can give it a try. Hope this helps 🙂
