Whilst travelling in Japan last week and browsing in as many stationery shops as I could find, I was so taken with this wonderful mt masking tape. Their website states that it is made from rice paper which has “just the right degree of transparency” and it can be written on too.
As you can see it comes in a huge range of cute colours, patterns and widths and believe it or not, I don’t have them all, yet. Unfortunately, it only seems to be available in Japan at present - if you come across it anywhere in Europe I would love to know about it.
I also purchased the little paperback book which they have produced showing some inspiring uses for it, including wrapping, collage and interior decoration, sticking postcards on the wall, photos on the fridge, labeling things etc - needless to say, I can’t read Japanese, so I just have to be content with looking at the images.
Here is a little practice book I made today, which I decided to decorate with the masking tape - just for fun. I am sure I am going to enjoy using this tape and will find endless practical and decorative uses for it. In fact I love it!
