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!

Amazing Journals!

On Friday I did a Christmas edition of Etsy Finds and included a rather beautiful journal.


A few people mentioned in the comments that they loved it and the seller, Robin, saw. She was kind enough to offer any of my readers a 10% discount! The one in the picture above is quite expensive as it is so full of amazingness (that’s a real word, honest… :p) but she said that she can make smaller and cheaper ones for any budget and to just send her a message on Etsy :)


All the journals are personalised and one of a kind, and include things like vintage letters and maps, charms, lace, ribbons etc. Also, you can choose the colours of things like ribbon, lace, ink and/or buttons, have your name put on it, and any important dates or hobbies, among other things! Very exciting!!

I have gone through Robins shop – 0 Names Left – to show you a selection of books she has available, including the cheapest ones she has available at the moment. The one above (that was in my Etsy Finds post) is $125, or around £80.81.

This wedding guest book is beautiful. I’d love something like this when I get married:


This one is a bit more expensive, but totally worth it! It is $250, or around £161.61.

And here are some smaller books for a cheaper price, just so you have an idea of what you could get if you decided to order a smaller one:


This travel journal is $30.00, or around £19.39. I love the rings holding these books together! Also, this would be amazing to track your journey wherever you travel :)


This one is so pretty, and could be used for so much! It is $25, or around £16.16


Out of the smaller ones this one is my favourite! I love the big yellow lacy ribbon and the owl is adorable! ♥ It costs $25 or around £16.16

So don’t forget, Robin has offered 10% off your order, and will make a book for your wants and budget! It’s really worth having a look, one of these would be amazing to receive for Christmas!

Thank you for reading :)
