Washi what?

I love washi tape. Whoever invented it is a genius.
Washi tape is a Japanese paper craft time very similar to masking tape. It’s unique feature is all the amazing patterns and pretty colours you can get it in.
I’ve been covering everything with washi tape since my obsession started. I put it on the front of my laptop. I put it on the space bar on my laptop. I painted my cork board white and put washi tape on that. I covered the ugly spine of my SmashBook with washi tape. I bought a mouse pad just to cover with washi.
So the other day I was bored. I’m planning on putting up a piece of twine on my wall to hang inspirational stuff from since my cork board will fill up too soon. I have mini clothespins and I wanted to spruce them up. Soooo, lemme stick some washi on that.

It is super easy:

1. Tear off a strip on washi tape and stick in on the clothespin.
2. Using an Xacto/craft knife, trim all the excess tape off. Use the blunt side of the knife to press the tape edges onto the pin so it stays.
3. You’re done.
