I only have 2 rolls but I have never used it. I stamped on some but never ended up using it on the page. I am washi challenged. Can anyone tell me how they use washi tape? Please include any links to projects!

I love washi tape! I use it to adhere scrapbook paper or pictures to the background. I also use it as just decoration for example I just put it in the bottom left corner on this smash page.

I'm excited by your post because I LOVE washi and have a lot of it/use it on everything.

I love using it in mini albums to go across the page, usually in a diagonal.

I also use it a lot in layers - that's part of the fun since they are usually a bit transparent.

I frequently use it for banners.

You can see an assortment of projects I've used it on here:

-I used it on the back cover in layered banners... just cut a triangle into it: Triangle banner

-On the cover of this mini, I tore it randomly and placed the bright pink in places on the edges. I also used a few different designs in layering, and then used a Hambly tape with that triangle cut out and the put two strips of pink on top of it (right corner area): Cover page

-Here I kept some edges down with it: Edge-holder

-I put a few different kinds across the page in layered diagonals on this page: Diagonal Lines

-I used it to tape my tags to the page so they could fold out here: Folds

-Another favorite use is to put a line of it behind letters on a page to really make them pop: Pop letters

-More layers across the bottom: more bottom layers

My best advice is to just play around with it and see what you come up with- just dive right in! I love it for everything. I even use it to keep my pastry bags closed when I make goodies for people. So much you can do with it.

I hope that gives you at least a little inspiration.

I love you, whatever that means. www.jessamazing.com

I've used it to tape the edge of a photo. I slap a little piece down wherever there's a need for a color burst to ground a design.

Pretty much anywhere you'd put ribbon or a border on your page, you could substitute washi tape.
