Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mixed-media artist Cerruti (Playing with Image Transfers) has an extensive collection of washi tape, and she sings the praises of this versatile craft supply with a variety of small, easy projects ranging from the obvious (use washi tape to embellish a card) to the interesting (apply it to boring black heels for a pop of color) to the questionable (cut fake "rosy cheeks" out of washi tape and apply them to vintage photos). There aren't any instructions, but applying washi tape to a surface doesn't require a whole lot of direction, so the projects are pretty much self-­explanatory. ­VERDICT The book resembles a printed Pinterest inspiration board more than anything elseâ??lots of style and not a whole lot of substance. It's just a collection of pretty pictures of things people might want to make, all centered on the theme of washi tape." - Library Journal



"Washi tape landed in our offices (and our hearts) a few years ago, and has continued to gain popularity every step of the way. The transparent tape originated in Japan and comes in countless colors & cute patterns. It is only slightly tacky, which means it's safe to use on even the most delicate surfaces. In this new craft book, you'll find over 101 cute & innovative crafts where washi tape shines. Author (and maker) Courtney Cerruti shares ideas for home decor, entertaining, fashion, and fun. Since opening the book (and promptly reading it cover to cover), we've personalized gift tags & updated our iPhone chargers. Next on the list? Geometric wall art! Trust us, it's time to stock up on washi tapeâ?? you'll have a long list of fun projects before you know it!" - RueMag.com



"The title is spot-on; this book is chock-full of quick and easy projects that use washi tape as the prime material. From sprucing up switch plates and personal tech devices to creating custom wrapping paper, Courtney's book showcases the versatility of washi tape and the way its patterns can add color and detail in unexpected places. What I love most about this book â?? and washi tape in general â?? is that it's so flexible and customizable without a major commitment. " - Design Sponge



"The colorful Japanese masking tape is having a moment - crafters, designers, and more can't get enough of it. A new book, Washi Tape: 101+ Ideas for Paper Crafts, Book Arts, Fashion, Decorating, Entertaining, and Party Fun! by Courtney Cerruti, shares even more uses for the decorative tape." - ElleDecor.com



"If you need another reason to squirrel away a few more rolls of Washi Tape, meet your new enabler: Courtney Cerruti. The Bay Area artist treats readers to a playful craft collection that goes beyond utilizing the low-tack, decorative Japanese paper in mere scrapbooking projects and on gift wrap.... Bottom line: There's plenty of fun to go around, from a memory matching game and festive paper crowns to keepsakes, such as art pieces that capture a child's sweet silhouette." - San Francisco Chronicle



"Japanese paper tape has been a crafting darling for years, and Washi Tape by Courtney Cerruti offers unique ideas for dressing your surroundings with it. Perhaps the coffee table or your smartphone? The possibilities go on and on." - Mary Levitski, Canada's Style At Home Magazine



"Is there anything you can't do with washi tape? It's the best thing to happen to crafters since hot glue. It comes in a million colors and widths - and, according to author Courtney Cerruti, the possibilities are endless. After reading this book, I, too, am a believer. Washi tape makes everything better: brown bag lunches, coat hangers, even flower pots. If it will sit still long enough you can put washi tape on it and make it cuter. Since washi tape is easy to remove and reposition, it is also great for kids to craft with. Just ask my daughter: She is quickly depleting my stash." - Jen Perkins, Blogher

More About the Author

Maker extraordinaire, Courtney sees books as objects to be read and re-purposed, candy wrappers as paper flower petals, toilet paper tubes as a menagerie of animals. She sees the potential in the discarded, history in the mundane and art in the everyday. She saves everything, makes anything and teaches from a place of passion and authenticity. Courtney believes everyone is creative and she'd rather spend an evening drinking tea and painting than doing anything else (except maybe scavenging treasures abroad).

Courtney teaches at the San Francisco Center for the Book, Press: Works on Paper as well as other guest locations in the SF Bay Area and online at Creativebug.com. She studied painting at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France where she had her first exhibition and hosted many book making parties!

Format: Flexibound
This book really is full of fun ideas for creating great projects with Washi Tape and makes an excellent gift for anyone who is new to crafting with washi tape. She gives a short introduction to washi tape and some different ways it can be used. She also teaches some techniques to working with the tapes, including how to properly layer them to get them to work with craft punches. I made some earrings using that technique and it really worked well. She also takes time to explain what types of surfaces work well with the washi tape, as well as which inks are good for writing on washi tape. The book includes helpful ways to store the tape, which is a big help to me because I have bought so many of these little tapes and wondered how best to store them.

The Projects are simple and easy to make. They include paper projects and home décor projects. I loved the idea of using the washi tape to cover light switches. They came out so fun. There are also fashion accessory projects, which are a fun and easy idea. The projects are very simple which means you can do them in one sitting. The projects vary from being able to complete in minutes to ones that require measuring and planning (for the wall art ideas). This book is geared to introducing the reader to washi tape and the many way the reader can use them in crafting. My daughter and I loved this book and the many cute projects it offered.

This book has opened up a whole new world of creative possibilities for me! The ideas are so great, clearly expressed, and beautifully photographed. My son and I have had lots of fun trying out projects and coming up with washi tape ideas of our own. Once you start playing with washi tape, you can't stop!

Needs a more mature appeal. More geared towards household crafting than scrapbooking or art journaling.
