I finally broke down and treated myself to some Washi tape to see what its all about. I used a Hobby Lobby coupon. OMG!! I love it. I didn't want to love it. I didn't want to NEED it. I didnt want to Google for more.
Its too late.
It adds a very nice touch and is so easy to use.

Bonnie, I'm in the same boat!!! Someone I know on a different forum showed how she used it in an art journal, and now I have way to many rolls. I'm mostly using in my smash books to tape down items I want to add.

I buy some ready-made but I also love to make my own using tissue paper and double-sided tape because I can make it custom to match any project that I'm working on and it provides me with yet another opportunity to stamp and play around with my inks and color sprays.
So if you enjoy stamping and playing around with ink/paint/mists, I'd encourage you to give making your own a shot. I think I first saw the tutorial re: how to do this from Julie Ebersole.

I think Julie's blog is where I got my first glimpse of it in action. I've bought a few rolls so far at Michael's with coupons. But I still have some Christmas money left and might be placing an order at the Etsy shop I mentioned soon!!
Other than Michael's, Joann's or Hobby Lobby (which aren't within 50 miles of where I live), where can you buy washi tape? We have a Walmart here, but I try to avoid that place unless I absolutely have to go there, so I haven't stopped in to check.
I too don't understand about Washi tape but see it everywhere plus it is appearing as part of Scrapbooking collections with the matching designer papers, brads, rhinestones and ribbons. Someone gave me a few rolls but I have no idea what to do with them
This stuff is just plain fun. Besides cards and pages, I use it for gift wrap, or in place of painters tape when I don't want a real sticky tape and the kicker is using pieces to hold hearing aid battery in place when a hinge broke! There are thousands of uses for this. I am hooked!
You can make really cute twist ties for goodie bags by placing some thin gauge wire in the middle, and then folding the tape in half. I like to use it to seal cellophane bags with pretty cookies inside.
