Over the course of the year-and-some that I’ve been writing letters, I have witnessed a certain chain craft retailer’s washi tape selection improved dramatically. Last year, I was lucky to find a weird roll of glittery “Craft Paper Tape” for five bucks. These days, though, you can purchase a whole tube of tapes for $10: a price that I sliced in half this weekend thanks to some clever couponing. If these springy tapes won’t keep the snow away, I don’t know what else could!
I’m not sure why all these leaves have decided to levitate and move slowly in one direction, but it sure makes for a cute pattern! I have some green envelopes that will pair perfectly with this.
Gratitude and wooden planks: the dreamiest combination. I’m grateful, at the very least, to have a washi tape that might go well with the outdoors-themed paper stack I’ve been trying to use for months.
Finally, the stars of the haul: the floral tapes! I love both of these patterns and the way they perfectly capture that comforting, springtime feeling that I’m constantly pursuing these days. The more detailed pattern could add the perfect finishing touch to an envelope design, while I’m already planning on using the larger flowers to create some homemade stationery sheets.
At the very least, this washi tape haul is dragon-approved: what higher praise could you get than that? Now I’ll just wait patiently for the day when dragon-themed washi tape comes into being…
