Q:  What can I do with Washi Tape?

A:  There are many things that can be done with it including adding stripes or other design to a card, using it for a border or even use it as a background.  It’s fun to play with it and create your own uses for it, too!

Q:  I need something to remove the adhesive from my project after I put it through my Xyron machine.  Is there anything I can use to make this job easy?

A:  An adhesive eraser is made just for that.  You use it just like a regular eraser, but when the edges will no longer work, you just cut that area off and it’s ready to use again.

Q:  I have a stamp on a wood block that is lose.  Is there any way to fasten it down again?

A:  You can use rubber cement on the back of the stamp to attach it back to the block.  It will not harm the stamp.

Q:  Do I need a specific sewing machine to sew on a card or layout?

A:  No, any sewing machine you choose will work.  Remember, though, if you also want to sew with it you will need to change the needle.  Paper can quickly dull a needle so be sure to have an extra on hand.

Q:   I want to add a message on my card, but I don’t want to stamp it and am not sure what else I can use.  Is there anything?

A:  There are many choices that you can use such as stickers, punches, stencils and rub-ons.  Also, remember that many patterned paper kits include letter stickers, as well as, patterned paper that letters and words can be cut from.

Magazine Holder

You can use these to hold all those magazines you haven’t had a chance to read yet or (should I even say it when it’s only August?) your kiddos school papers and notebooks *gasp*.  You can use paper and line it with washi tape like our Think Crafts blogger did, or you can cover the whole thing in cool washi tape designs!

I absolutely love giving gifts.

Plus, I always get a little ego boost when my gift is the most adorably wrapped in the pile. So, here are some ideas for the next few presents you’ll give, cuteness factor courtesy of washi tape.
