Hello little peas!
I'm new to scrapbooking but have recently bought lots of different washi tapes. Was wondering what everyone uses their washi tape for? Any ideas of how to include it within scrapbooking layouts?
Thanks peas

Hi! You're asking about a topic dear to my heart. I adore washi tape and use it all the time!

- to frame a journaling box
- for a torn tape look on photo corners
- as a border
- anywhere you'd normally use a strip of patterned paper
- behind a title
- behind journaling
- as part of an embellishment cluster

I know several of the layouts I have in the gallery have washi. You can also do a search. Have fun!

Washi is so hot right now I think you'll find it hard to find projects that don't use it Check out the videos to see how it's used 'in action', or type "washi" into the search box for the gallery and tons of stuff will pop up... My favourite ways to use it right now (other than the basic as using it to tape down a picture or label), is to run overlapping strips of it on parchment or wax paper and then using a punch or my Silhouette to cut it into shapes... Sort of like making your own stickers

Watch some Glitter Girl videos here at Two Peas! She uses it a lot!

clustered embelishments
grounding title
border strips
attaching photos

I also use my least favourite tapes to attach things temporarily because it comes off so easily

margievis - thanks for the link to your board. Great ideas!

I was going to suggest searching pinterest. You'll find tons of ideas there. I'm just getting started with my washi collection, so I'm also on the lookout for ways to use it.
