Washi Tape Love! (And A Review)

Washi tape
I have given great thought to how I want my items to be packaged when I open my shop. One thing I knew – I wanted washi tape!! How things are packaged can influence peoples opinion on your business, and good packaging makes a good first impression and helps you to be more memorable. I wanted to coordinate with my logo and banner image so I chose brown (I will show you everything when we’ve perfected it!) I looked through every site and Etsy store that sold washi tape to find the perfect colour and style, and finally settled on this one.

Good first impressions, simple yet cute!

Cute! Looks like a candle :)

This pretty packaging instantly makes it a great gift idea!

Pretty!

Pretty!

What do you think? I love them!
The shop, Pretty Tape from Etsy, has a great selection of colours and styles for great prices. It was hard to stop myself buying more than these! I would totally recommend them, and I will be visiting again as soon as I can find an excuse :) They mostly sell washi tape, but also a few other things like rubber stamps and things for packaging. They are in America but shipping to me in the UK was nice and quick. I didn’t find any faults, and urge you to go check them out!

Thanks for visiting today!
