Calling all washi tape lovers! Let’s play with our washi and share some of it too! It’s super easy to make lovely notecards with washi tape.

Swap details

  • 2 partners
  • Create a washi card for each partner. Your cards can be similar to the card I made for the swap photo, or you can look for other washi card inspiration online. It’s all good. (One tip I have for using washi to make cards is to wrap the strips to the back of a card layer and adhere that layer to your folded card base. This ensures the ends of the “not so sticky” tapes don’t peel up.)
  • Write a note inside each card, telling a little about you and what you enjoy. (It’s interesting that we swap with people all over the world and yet, hardly ever really get to know anyone.)
  • Choose 8 different washi tapes to share with each partner. Each sample should be 21 inches/53.34 centimeters and wrapped on a shiny surface for easy removal. (No plain, glitter, or Dollar Store tapes).
  • Put the tapes in the cards and the cards in envelopes and seal them.
  • Decorate the envelopes with colorful washi tapes!
  • Address the envelopes, add proper postage, and send them on their merry way.

Isn’t it so cool how far or sometimes surprisingly close our envelopes travel to brighten the lives of our partners?! 😀
