Washi tape is taking the craft world by storm, and inside this book are 101 ideas on how to use it. Find out what it can do (and what it cant in a very useful list of dos and donts) and how you can incorporate it into your craftwork. It isnt just for making cards and papercrafts; here you can see it used to decorate glassware, furniture and a cat box, made into jewellery and hair decorations, adorning party ware and scrapbooks as well as artwork. How did you manage without it?

There are some good instructions in here, written by somebody who has a talent for doing so. Simple projects have some very self explanatory pictures, more complex ones a short list of worded directions, while more demanding projects feature some illustrated staged instructions. I like knowing what I can and cannot do with the tape, and the bright modern style of the designs suits the projects. There is a wide range of things to make to suit many hobbies, many attractive photographs and lots of inspiring ideas. I admired the brevity of time needed for many impressive looking pieces, especially those lovely flowers, realistic feather earrings and the party masks. Simple and fun to make, this lovely book is sure to inspire crafters to grab some rolls of tape and get creating.
