Ticket rollLots of great new items for summer are here and I wanted to tell you about a couple of my favorites! First, I love our giant roll of 1,000 Admit One Tickets. They’re super fun for all kinds of summer shenanigans from family talent shows to movie nights around the tv. Hey kids, it’ll be so fun!…when those adults pay you admission you can hand them a real, official “admit one” ticket! I think these would make really cute accents on a Valentine card, too. You know, like “admit one” to my heart sort of thing. Maybe that’s goofy, but I thought it sounded cute…good thing I have 9 months until Valentine’s Day to noodle on my idea.

Decorative tape_dots washi tapeI’m also excited to share this beautiful washi tape with our customers. Washi tape is Japanese masking tape made from washi paper. (Washi comes from “wa” meaning Japanese and “shi” meaning paper, and the term is used to describe paper made by hand in the traditional manner.) This first set is similar to one of our best selling Japanese papers, Yuzen Blue White Swirls Fine Paper, and comes with one roll of dark blue decorative tape and one roll of red decorative tape. This tape is easy to tear and has a slightly translucent quality. It’s great for card making, or tear pieces off to use as page flags…it might just become your new favorite craft item. It looks great on colored paper and kraft paper. The second set features a color similar to our pool, along with a roll of teal.
Decorative tape_blue washi tapeThere are fun blogs out there about washi tape such as sideoats + scribbles where you can see that the possibilities are endless and it’s REALLY easy to use!

    Thanks for sharing! I have a few rolls of the washi tape, and they are wonderful. They also do not tear off paper after you adhere it (and have made a mistake!). They slide off very easily. Paper Source has become *my* favorite lately! I am lucky to have a store in my hometown, Princeton, NJ, where I visit often to pick up single sheets and inspiration. Two sheets made it onto my blog yesterday as wall paper and flooring for one of my modernist doll houses: http://call-small.blogspot.com/2010/05/ceiling-for-floor.html. You’ll see some closeups of the papers. THANK YOU!

  3. This is one of my favorite patterns of the masking tapes. I created a quick travel journal with the masking tape and some stamps by Theresa Collins. You can check it out here http://scraptasticdesigns.blogspot.com/2010/05/honest-days-work.html

  4. Oh I just LOVE Japanese masking tape! It is hard to describe how pretty it is — you have to see it in person! It has a translucent shimmery quality that looks beautiful when layered. Here’s what I mean: http://sideoatsandscribbles.wumple.com/?p=2638

  5. Oh and I am so excited that I forgot to add — thanks so much for the link to my blog — I have been a HUGE Paper Source fan for years and years! xo

    I am a big fan of the Japanese masking tapes too! I found mine at a cute store called little happy things on Etsy. The owner is sweet and I think she brings things back when she goes back to visit, I guess.
    Here is her Etsy shop if anyone is interested.
