TUTORIAL WEDNESDAY

As it's the last Wednesday of the month, you're in for a treat!

Today is Tutorial Wednesday, and Lillian, one of our talented Guest Designers, is sharing a refreshing look at using washi tape on your projects.

Washi 和紙 is a style of Japanese paper tape that started in Japan but manufacturing has now spread throughout the world. Washi tape is commonly made using fibers from the bark of the gampi tree, the mitsumata shrub (Edgeworthia papyrifera), or the paper mulberry, but it's most commonly made using bamboo, hemp, rice, and wheat. Washi comes from wa meaning Japanese and shi meaning paper, and the term is used to describe paper made in the traditional manner, regardless of where it’s manufactured.

 Lillian features the Bugaboo image, Cute Puppy, on her stationery set.
