Having fun with Japanese Washi tape thanks to Pinterest...

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Last weekend I pinned something on Pinterest and actually did it. Who knew? I'm usually one of those pin and run type of gals. I love organizing all that eye candy but seldom have the energy to actually tackle the task myself. My good friend C (from Naoko Eats) spoiled my girl K with some Washi tape from her last visit to Tokyo. So naturally, like any pinner, I went browsing for some education on Washi tape and more importantly ideas on what to do with it. Pinning was in overdrive and fortunately I found this little  blog idea and we were ready to go!  Natuarlly, my superior pinning skills made me feel like  an awesome mommy and felt like a superstar mommy when I actually sat down with K to craft together. I'm just saying this now... washi tape crafts totally obliterates any mommy guilt and seriously hikes up the mommy love. Check out our fabulous crafting skills below.
 Lovely Washi tape from auntie C! Thanks C!
 We cut pieces to size and got our pattern going! K is a stickler for patterns and counting. 
 I bought a clear thread thingy from Dollarama and then we folded the tape on and I cut the little bunting shapes into it. Washi tape is stickier than I thought...K got tired of doing it and I became more obsessed with it.
 K has the freedom to decorate her door anyway she likes (we collaborate together on the rest of her room).  She determined the arrangement and quietly waited for me to finish taking pictures. She's a pro.
K wanted a more summer spring door and I think the Washi tape did the trick! Looks fun and cheery if I do say so myself. 
Alright, I know your dying to see one more door pic. Now, if  only we had some superhero Washi tape we could do up D's bedroom door too! All images via me.

Very cute and love the way you have used it.
I love washi tape too and I just got one in the mail in key lime polka dots. Hmm gotta make use of them instead of only using them for sealing envelopes.
