      Hi Jeanne!
      We are so happy you liked this post :). Washi tape feels like thin masking tape. Washi tape is made from natural fibers, such as bamboo or hemp and is functional as well as pretty making it wonderful for both every day and decorative use. Here is a link to ideas for washi tape: Thank you!
