Washi Tape: 101+ Ideas for Paper Crafts, Book Arts, Fashion, Decorating, Entertaining, and Party Fun! Reviews
This book has opened up a whole new world of creative possibilities for me! The ideas are so great, clearly expressed, and beautifully photographed. My son and I have had lots of fun trying out projects and coming up with washi tape ideas of our own. Once you start playing with washi tape, you can't stop!
Awesome book filled with tons of fun, creative ideas for Washi Tape. The author gives clear, simple instructions for incorporating tape into your home decor, your home office, your parties and more! Great projects, great ideas, great photos!
So not worth the money for this book. 101 things but many are the same idea on a different medium. And some are so bad like decorating your heels with washi that I really only took away maybe one or two good ideas from the book. Save your money.
Needs a more mature appeal. More geared towards household crafting than scrapbooking or art journaling.
This book contains many ideas for crafting with Washi Tapes. It is an excellent idea book for Children's crafts. A good book for Grandmother's sharing time with Grandchildren or Mother's spending crafting time with their children.
Some cute ideas as I didn't know it was such a versatile product.
This book really is full of fun ideas for creating great projects with Washi Tape and makes an excellent gift for anyone who is new to crafting with washi tape. She gives a short introduction to washi tape and some different ways it can be used. She also teaches some techniques to working with the tapes, including how to properly layer them to get them to work with craft punches. I made some earrings using that technique and it really worked well. She also takes time to explain what types of surfaces work well with the washi tape, as well as which inks are good for writing on washi tape. The book includes helpful ways to store the tape, which is a big help to me because I have bought so many of these little tapes and wondered how best to store them.
I think that the publisher and author of this book should be embarrassed. This is a book for adults that has ideas that even a toddler could have come up with. Can you figure out how to write a word on a piece of colored tape, then stick it on a jar to label what is inside? That is literally one of the "ideas" in this book. Slap a row or two of washi tape on a paper cup - it's decorated! Put some tape down on the carpet in the shape of a hop-scotch board! Amazing! Not one of the 101 "ideas" in this book are creative, nor are any of them something that anybody couldn't have figured out how to do with a piece of tape in a fraction of a second. Skip this waste of money and go directly to other books on washi that have actual creative ideas - such as Washi Wonderful by Jenny Doh. Unless you honestly couldn't figure out how to make a little tape flag on a toothpick to stick on top of a cupcake. If your creative skills are seriously that lacking, then maybe there is something in this book for you. For example, you may not have imagined that putting two rows of wash tape across a plate could make it look slightly decorative temporarily while you put a cookie on it....
