Top 5 Washi Tape Essentials

I recently started using washi tape in my crafting and it's been a wonderful experience. It's super simple to use and perfect for creating colorful, fun projects. However, it works best with a few specific items:

  1. Exacto Knife
  2. Card stock or heavy-weighted paper
  3. Cutting board/mat
  4. Ruler
  5. Patience

I've found that it's best to use the Exacto knife and cutting board for clean, precise cuts that give you an excellent finished project. Also, be patient when you lay your tape down, it may take more than one try in order to get everything to line up just right.
