Wishy Washy about Washi?

So have you been bit by the Washi bug? Not sure what all the hype is about?
I know until recently the only places I saw Washi tape were in online scrapbooking stores. Then Tim Holtz had a line, but called it "Tissue Tape". Now, it's come more mainstream and you can find the Michael's "Recollections" brand "Craft Tape".

Here's a few of the rolls I picked up this week (they're regularly for $4.99 but 50% off this week so only $2.49 for the package). I photographed the back so you can see the UPC in case you're interested in calling your local store to check stock. The last pic shows the front so you know what the packaging looks like. I found mine on a special display near the front of the store (up by Martha's stuff).


  1. Thank you so much for posting this! Your blog is fabulous!!!

  2. Where do you live for your Michaels? I have checked Utah stores and everyone I went to non have carried it?

    1. I'm in Northwest Ohio. We don't have a very big Michael's, just one of the smaller ones. It's only been up front on the edge of one of the special "seasonal" scrapping stuff (like where the Christmas, holiday, etc stacks are).

  3. THANK YOU! I've been looking for someplace I could actually go to and SEE the tapes instead of online... you know, get a feel for the tape before I actually go and order a whole bunch. I'll have to stop by on my way home from work tomorrow!! :D


Hi! I'd love to hear from you, so...leave me a message!
