Downtown Tape Giveaway! {giveaway closed}

I think you’d be pretty hard pressed to find a crafty person these days who doesn’t love washi tape.  I’m not even a crafter but I love it.  Actually, I think it’s the perfect product for a non-crafter because you can tear it off, stick it on, and voila: instant cuteness!!  I love stuff that makes it look like I tried.

Downtown Tape is a new purveyor of all things washi tape and every roll is a buck ninety nine!  Pretty sweet, huh?  I also love how simple and uncluttered their website is.  It’s a joy to browse around and find all the washi goodies you need.  Did I mention they’re all $1.99??

They have some really cute designs, including polka dots:


and my fave, floral!

Not sure what to do with washi tape?  Here are a couple projects from Downtown Tape to give you some ideas (Also, you could google “washi tape project” and get approximately eleventygajillion results.  Bloggers really love their washi.):

I’m giving myself a break this year and wrapping all my presents in brown craft paper and then decorating with some simple washi tape.  It’s cute and simple, and once again, makes it look like I tried.  Nothing like making life easier for yourself around the holidays, amiright?

So, who wants to win their choice of 10 rolls of washi tape plus 25 printable gift tags from Downtown Tape?  Just leave a comment on this post telling us what you’d do with all that washi goodness!

    I’ve been living in a hole because I’ve never heard of washi tape! Like Joanna, I’d decorate my kid’s school stuff first, then go crazy with it around the house. My husband… oh the eye rolling!

  2. says

    My seven year old daughter would love this! She’d put it on all of her school stuff. I’d have to keep some for myself also. I think I’d use it for gift tags.

  3. says

    I’ve been doing most of my Christmas shopping online and the boxes come stuffed with brown paper. I started wrapping my gifts in it but then realized it didn’t look chic, just cheap. Washi tape is now on my list to dress up my presents! thanks for the chance

  4. says

    I can’t even begin to think what exact projects I would use the tape for but I’m sure my 5 year old would love to join in the fun.

    We ran out of regular tape about a month ago….and have been using my 1 roll of washi tape since then. We’re using it and recycled brown paper grocery bags to wrap gifts, too! ♥ If I won your giveaway I’d have a prettier selection!!! Is this a mail-order only? Or is it available in stores, too?

  6. says

    So cute! I would probably use it for wrapping presents and maybe also for helping organize my daughter’s diabetes journal…lots to keep track of but no reason it can’t be pretty too!

  7. says

    Love washi tape! I use it for a lot of things — recently we had to paint clothes pins for a craft, but I used washi tape over the clothes pins instead. Looked super cute and once my kids are “over” the craft, I can peel the tape off and the use the clothes pins for a new craft!

  8. says

    I’ve used it to wrap around mini bread loaves wrapped in parchment and on cards cut out of recycled boxes to make them cute and around recycled plastic containers to make “vases” for my kids to take flowers to their teachers at school.

  9. says

    i only recently discovered washi tape and fell in love with it. I’ve decorated cards and used it for tags for organizing. My next project – Christmas cards with my girls. I would love to win to add to my small stash of washi tape – and to my list of possibilities. BTW, i love the You Are My Sunshine project, pinning it for later.

  10. says

    it would definitely be great for gift wrapping, cards, and probably a million other things i can’t think of at the moment! pretty sure i’d have a tough time keeping it out of my kiddos hands though… :)

  11. says

    Oh my gosh are you kidding me???? You are my grand daughters HEAVEN!!! That tape will have her flipping into next year! She loves that stuff…at the moment she is into duct tape with all its colors and patterns, but finding it isn’t good for everything…but the meshi tape…would be perfect! Talk about one happy child!! Thanks for the chance!

    Oh I love Washi Tape!!! Let me count the ways….lol! I use it for scrapbooking, cardmaking and art journaling! Thanks so much for the chance to win such beautiful Washi Tapes!

  13. says

    I LOLed at “I love stuff that makes it look like I tried.”

    We’d use it to make our gifts look like we tried to wrap them nicely this year ;)

    I’ve never used washi tape before…but seeing all the comments above and some of the pictures on the blog, well I just need to try it on wrapping paper, gift bags and letters! Thanks for the great referral and info!

  15. says

    I’ve never used it but there are so many possibilities!! I think it would look great sealing up the packages of the products I make, simple but pretty :)

  16. says

    I like your idea of wrapping presents in brown paper and then decorating with the wasji tape. I have tons of brown paper and this would sure be a good way to use it up and save me money.

  17. says

    I think I would use some to tape up the kid’s pictures on their art walls in their bedrooms rather than the boring clear tape I’m using at the moment.

  18. says

    I love the Christmas package idea! Also, I think I’d color code my keys so I can remember which is mine, my mom’s, or my mother-in-law’s :P

  19. says

    My kids and myself would decorate any and everything we could with this tape, the ideas are endless.. from wall decor, to card making, adding them to appliances for that one-of-a-kind look and feel, jewelry making, and the list goes on

  20. says

    I’ve just given in to washi tape, and I love it! I’m using it on my Christmas presents this year and also to differentiate my external hard drives. Thanks!

  21. says

    I’d use the tape to perk up my cubicle at work. I’d decorate the walls with geometric washi tape designs and faux picture frames around my favorite photos.

  22. says

    I’m definitely hitting Downtown Tape whether I win or not, but I would use it on Christmas presents, AS Christmas presents and I’d spruce up my daughter’s craft storage, for starters. Yay for washi!

  24. says

    That’s a pretty good price for washi! I would probably want to use it for scrapbooking (whenever it is I start that, ha ha) and also for decorating envelopes and cards :D

    How lovely, thank you for this fab giveaway. Washi tape is still new and quite hard to get hold of in England so I would be so pleased to win some. I would use it to help wrap up gifts and cards too.

    I love things that are functional yet beautiful, and this tape is just that sort of thing! I’d use it for gift-wrapping, cards, and sealing packages of home-baked goods. aperek (at) sbcglobal (dot) net
