Book review: Washi Wonderful

I'm gonna have to be honest, because I always am about books...washi tape is not my thing and probably won't ever be.  I'm not into cute, except when I'm making stuff with my granddaughter.  So, ok, I guess there's an outside chance of me using washi tape, but it's pretty slim.

On the other hand, if cute is your thing, you can't go wrong with Jenny Doh's Washi Wonderful.  Washi tape, in case you haven't heard, is a colorfully patterned paper tape that comes from Japan.  It is used to "cuten up" all kinds of projects, from home accessories and gift items to cards and boxes.  There are over 50 projects in this book, and since it is from Lark Books, you know the layouts and photography are exceptionally beautiful.

There is good information in the Basics section on how to handle the tape and how to store it once the rolls begin to take over your studio.  The tools you will need are few and readily available.  I really think that people who are into making cards will particularly love this new book, as cards and gift wrap dominate two major sections!
