Have you met Japanese Washi Tape?

Washi Tape is decorated masking tape. Originally designed to aid painters in ‘masking’ out areas they did not want to paint over. Now it has been transformed and comes in a range of colours and designs.

This tape has many uses, especially n gift wrapping.

It can be combined with jute or bakers twine to make a beautiful designer ribbon.

It can be used as Sellotape around a package (need to be a bit careful here as the masking tape is not as adhesive as normal Sellotape)

It can be used on your shipping packages for that extra detail.

Or it can be used to make lovely cards

or this cool idea

The lovely Lisa has just opened her website Kozo Tape. This means you can buy Washi Tape here in NZ. She has an amazing collection for sale. I am a little addicted.

To celebrate Kozo’s website being open I thought I would host a giveaway! Two rolls of Kozo Tape from me to you!

Leave a comment here or on facebook telling us which is your favourite tape from Kozo’s collection and what you would make or decorate with it! Easy Peasy!

Giveaway to close Thursday 4th March!

Craft and Masking Tape Love!


  1. So I redid the post cause it was really annoying me. Comments on the original post still stand and you all will be going in the 'hat' for the giveaway! Sx

  2. OOooooooh! How do you choose??? Hmmm, I think I like the Candyland collection, I'm probably cheating slightly cos I'm naming more than one! I would use them for lots of things! I love the card idea, I'd also like to incorporate them into my packaging somehow, plus, I've just acquired 26 small jars, that I've had no idea what to do with, and now I know! Cover them with Kozo tape!!
