Fun with Washi - Book Giveaway

 Congratulations to winners April Rogers, Debra Norton, and Patti L!

It's giveaway season here at ATP so be sure to check in each Monday to see the latest offering. First up is Zakka Life blogger Jessica Okui's new craft title, Fun with Washi. This handy little book, measuring only about six inches square, has 128 pages filled with clever, modern projects. You'll find novel uses for all those tantalizing rolls of paper washi tape you may or may not have already been tempted to purchase.

Fun with Washi - Book Cover

Included are home decor, accessory, stationery, and party/present wrapping ideas. Quite a few of the 35 projects would be ideal to make and give as holiday gifts.

The beautifully photographed book starts off with a thorough section on Materials & Tools and another on Techniques. 

Here's a sampling of the Home Decor Table of Contents. 

Fun with Washi - Project Sampling

Jessica's smocked paper luminary and several examples of washi tape wall art are some of my favorites. Step-by-step text directions detail each project; there are helpful diagrams where needed.

True Japanese washi tape is low-tack, making it ideal for use on walls. A standout is a faux headboard line drawing... a casual, but effective substitute for the real thing. And how neat are these temporary Christmas gifts!

Chronicle Books will be sending Fun with Washi to three winners in the U.S. or Canada. Just leave one comment as your entry through Sunday, November 9, 2014. Please include an email address or another way to be contacted within your comment, as Blogger does not allow me to see the top portion of the comment form.
