OK, I may a have a problem.
Are there interventions for washi tape-aholics?
A few nights ago I decided I needed more washi tape.
(I guess around 100 rolls is not enough.)
I soon found out that there are 118 pages of
Japanese washi tape on Amazon.com.
I was amazed and impressed!
So I ordered a couple.
What you can not tell from the photo above is
that all of those boxes are at least two deep.
What a great deal I got!
And they arrived in two days!
Yes, I already had bunches of washi tape.
They aren’t expensive so it’s easy to gather a lot.
Japanese washi tape is soooooo cute!
I couldn’t decide what to do with it all,
so I pulled out a journal and started putting
samples on the pages.

I love, love, love the donut tape!
And the Hello Kitty tape!
And the rhinos in pink sweaters tape!
Some of these rolls were wider.
Top, middle and bottom are my favorites here.
Wish the colors had photographed better.
Just look at those fairy tale castles on the bottom!
I am having a bit of a problem with the tape adhering
on the ends. I don’t know if it is because they were
subjected to freezing cold on the way here or not.
So I took a longer piece of tape and ran it down the binding of the book.
The ones on the long side edge – if I could I wrapped
the tape around to the back of the page.
Couldn’t do that on every page.
And I had exactly three pages of tape <3 .
My plan is to use these tapes in my
Once I start over.
I took my planner to the local print shop earlier today
to have the spine cut off and a spiral binding added.
They texted me photos of a completely messed up
planner that is unusable.
I will have to start all over again.
I am hoping the watercolor pages I did can be
glued into a new book.
See all those little boxes?
That is how the washi tape came to me.
I spent part of this afternoon cutting pieces of each
box to keep and use on art journal pages in the future.
I don’t waste a thing!
Can you see Zen in the back partially buried
under washi tape boxes?
Good thing he has a good sense of humor!
It’s where it’s at.
Today at least.
And my post title?
One can never have too many.
That is how many is too many.
