A few months back, I did a post about my process for writing letters and the supplies I use to decorate my envelopes. A couple of people asked me about where I get my supplies so I thought I'd share my sources.
I'll start with the Washi Tape since that was the big superstar of the post.....
Would you believe me if I told you that all of my washi tape was purchased within the last 5 months? Prior to March, I didn't even know what washi tape was. But if you need to know anything about me, it's this: when I get obsessed with something, I go stark-raving, foam-at-the-mouth insane. You know how sometimes you joke about wanting to sell your kidney to buy something? Sadly, when I say it, I'm only 8.5% joking. Biology shouldn't have given me two of something if it didn't intend for me to sell one copy for washi tape. GEEZ. I go full-Hulk while buying, calm down after a few weeks, and only then look at the aftermath of how badly my wallet was hit. Ignorance is bliss people, ignorance is bliss.
My washi tape was mostly purchased from the following places:
1) Omiyage [wonderful seller right in Canada. They have a $7.50 flat-rate for shipping, and refund your money if the actual shipping cost is less than the $7.50. Great and honest to boot! But they sell out quite quickly, so if you find something you like, I suggest you purchase it lickey-split!]
2) Happy Tape [great seller with really neat 10-tape paks. However, the shipping is fairly pricey compared to the other places, so that can be a huge hit to the wallet]
3) Cute Tape [really great selection of washi tapes, but the selection of several items—which has to be done item by item—to the shopping cart is a total pain]
4) Deserres [a chain of art stores in Canada that offer practically everything you could need for art and some crafts, including washi tape! I rely on Deserres to keep me stocked up on pens as well]
There are also numerous stores on etsy that sell washi tape. Hello Bunnies and Papered Thoughts recently had great posts about other washi tape sources so check them out too!
I'm washi-ed out. Did you groan at the really embarassing pun? Me too. Let's not mention it again.
