What Is Washi Tape

Before you can use washi tape to its fullest potential, it might be helpful to know what Washi Tape is!  Washi tape is a type of decorative tape. Washi Tape isn’t meant to be used to repair equipment or survive intense weather. However, these tapes are often colorful, have decorative patterns, and are popular among bullet journal, planner, and DIY communities. Also, they can come in a variety of lengths and widths!
