Lots 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.
I’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.
There 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!
