I've fallen in love with Washi tapes and was thrilled to find my LSS has started carrying the Trendy Tapes brand. Even more so when I discovered last night that they are selling them for $1.99 per roll, and if I order direct from Queen & Co. they are $2.99 per roll. Did I stock up? Silly question...
I reeeally need to come to the States just for scrap shopping! Half of the stuff that you guys talk about on this site, I have absolutely no idea what it is and I just try and imagine it until somehow I find out!
I have to go back and look but I found a site that carries the washi tape in lots of styles and fairly reasonable. You can make your own pack of rolls too. I ordered some for each of my grandaughters at Christmas time and they were pretty happy with them.
Aha!! I have access to something Kory doesn't. I knew there had to be something We have a huge Japantown area here in San Francisco, and lots of stores with imports, stationery, kids school supplies, and of course the 100-yen stores. And lots of washi tape I haven't really gotten into using it yet, though, what are you guys doing with it?

Yeah, that's what I thought- USE IT? I want to sit it on my shelf. Maybe it touch it every once in a while...
haha... I like having pretty things on my shelves to look at too!
As for what to do with it, I was planning (cause I have not found any locally) on using it like i use my ribbon across my layouts... kinda boring, but i am sure i will come up with ways by the time i actually get some.
Well, one idea - if you're a card maker, you can put together the quickest last-minute card ever and it looks great. Just put 3-4 coordinating strips of washi tape vertically along one side (i.e., dots, plaids, stripes, but all in the same color family) and add a label with a stamped sentiment. Combining the various patterns makes it look like you really took a lot of time with it when you really only spent 5 minutes!
Great idea, D! Would be nice on an LO as well. I don't use ribbon very much at all, but the tape is compelling in the same way I think ribbon is for a lot of other people. Hmmm. Maybe I need to go shopping again
OMG! A product I haven't heard about? How is this possible? Now I have to expand my mission to find some of this. Kory, why haven't you told me about this before? I know why, you don't want me to buy out any stock before you can get to it
Okay, I had to Google it too, and now I'm in love!! Seriously, I have got to have some of this. I need it!!
But I now know why we can't find any, some person on Etsy has about a gazillion rolls of it for sale (way expensive) so it appears this person bought up every roll in about a 4 jillion square mile area.
