Washi Tape Tips June 24, 2017 – Posted in: washi tape

Hello! I am sad to say that it is the last day of washi week, but we do have a great topic: washi tape tips! Today you will read about the key tips to buying and using washi tape.

To buy washi tape, you need to know where to buy it. I highly recommend Michaels craft stores.  They have a wide variety of washi tape. Depending on how much you want, there are many different sized packs. Some come in packs of 2 or 3. They cost about $4-5. You can buy smaller tubes of 8 or 9, which are about $15, or large tubes with 12 to 15 for about $20. When I buy, I almost always use a coupon or wait for a sale,  and sometimes there are dispensers that come with three or so rolls: don’t buy it! It was so cheesy! It broke within a couple of days.

As I said before, there are may places where you should buy and should not buy. Michael’s and Joann’s both have a good selection, but Walmart doesn’t. Although, all three have good quality stuff. They are places I recommend buying. Now the Dollar Tree washi tape is awful stuff. It doesn’t stick and it is really thick so I DO NOT advise buying from there. Also, be careful and check how many ft/yards is on a roll otherwise they might not be worth it (standard is 10 yards). If you go to Target, some times they have little rolls in the “Dollar Spot” for $1.00 but if you are there at the right time you can get them on clearance as cheap as 30 cents! To me that’s worth it, and we end up getting A LOT.

As for using washi tape, you don’t have to get it perfect the first time. Depending on what you are using it on, it can be reusable. It stays sticky for quite a while. You don’t have to be afraid to use it on walls, it doesn’t peel paint or leave a residue.

So there, those are some tips on buying and using washi tape. I hope this was helpful! Thanks for reading!
