W - What Is It?

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter W. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as her W element will be featured in her post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy

If you came from Jenny Gilbert then you're on the right track!

Washi Tape … it's everywhere these days. People are still asking, "What is it?". The very most straight forward answer … "it's TAPE". That's about as complicated as it gets. It's not necessarily tape for holding things together. BUT you can decorate almost anything with it!! It's NOT just for paper projects.

Here's a great definition I found online " … washi tape is decorative Japanese tape that crafters are completely OBSESSED with. It also has a magic power that makes everything it’s stuck to the most adorable thing in the world.

Check out some amazing projects make with this colorful stuff!! CLICK --> HERE.

Of course Close To My Heart is on board with several designs that are our very own. Here are a couple of Christmas tag projects I've made with CTMH Washi!!

The stripes you see across this tag are just tape!! Cute AND oh so easy. No paper to trim exactly the right size. Just tear of the tape and apply. If it's not exactly straight you can pull it up and try again.

Can you find the Washi here? It's right around the edges so it actually looks like pretty paper. It's shiny silver even though that isn't easy to see in a picture.

The three different Washi designs you see here are packaged together just for Christmasy projects. Click HERE --> WASHI. You'll see these and all of the Washi that CTMH has to offer.
