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?

  2. Accent stuff, like the paper clips or flags on toothpicks. I’ve not used washi tape before.

  3. Oh, I’d probably just stick it on everything I own haha! But, more specifically, I think I’d use it to pretty up envelopes when sending cards.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  24. Everything! Mostly gift wrapping and card making :)

  25. 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!

  39. I’d make bookmarks, decorate presents, make gift tags. I’d have to hide them from my son though. He loves to make things out of tape.

  40. 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.
