Friday Favorites: The Washi Tape Edition

**  Each of these Friday Favorites is something created by another blogger.  I do my best to include the proper credits and help you reach their blogs easily either through the text link or the photo link.  If you'd like to Pin one of these projects, please pin it directly from the original post,
not from this blog post.  Thanks!

Are you as obsessed with washi tape crafts as I am?  I have just a small collection of washi tape and paper tape at the moment, but I'm always on the hunt for fun ways to use it. 

How about a matryoshka doll on your craft room wall?  She is just adorable, and Sewn Studio even shared the pattern and instructions in a blog post.

For a fun pop of color, consider a striped desktop or table top!  This one is from Elise Blaha's blog.  Isn't this fun?  Its an inexpensive way to decorate too!  This would be a great way of adding color and individuality to an office where you can't change the walls like in a rented space or a college dorm.
Washi tape is great on glass too.  Add some to vases or candle holders, like these pretties from  Wouldn't you love to see these on your windowsill?  So cheerful!
Turn up the volume on a solid candle with a washi wrapper.  WohnWasabi shows you how with a quick tutorial.
And of course there are lots of inspirational photos of paper goods embellished with washi.  Greeting cards, mailing envelopes, gift tags, notebook covers. I've even seen it on laptops!  This Washi Gift Tag is one of my favorites from Craftaholics Anonymous.  I love how she added the floral touch too!

Washi buntings come in all shapes and sizes.  This is a cute one for topping off a special cake!  The blog post for this one includes a recipe for a chocolate cake.  It looks to be quite yummy.  That link is a two-fer!
And speaking of Pinterest, there are a ton of washi tape inspiration boards.  Just type washi in the search box, and you'll be browsing for hours and hours.  Ask me how I know. ;)
