Last December, we were fortunate enough to head to Tokyo for a holiday with the kids. Before we left, I messaged my friend, Rachel from Scrappin Love because I knew she would know the best places to find craft supplies in Japan. She told me to check out Tokyo Hands and I did. It turned out to be a great place to find all kinds of washi tape. In fact, that was where I first spotted the washi tape printer.
Well, over the past week, the people who brought in MT Tapes to Singapore decided to throw a "party". They painstakingly decorated the art gallery located at ION Orchard with a myriad of washi tape designs. But the most eye-catching display were the rows and rows of hanging washi tape balls. Captured on instagram accounts all over Singapore, this was what drew the crowds.
Of course there were also limited edition MT tapes for sale. My favourite was the peranakan-inspired tape and I am happy to say that I managed to buy two rolls. They were completely sold out before the end of the Expo.
The other fun part was the craft table where people were invited to decorate items that they had brought or paper boxes that were supplied. I stood there for a little while decorating my planner. It was super fun being able to craft alongside others and enjoy the MT tapes together. I must say that I was glad that I wasn't in a rush and managed to squeeze in time to do that.
Given my new additions, I decided I needed more inspiration on what to do with my tapes so I spent this morning pinning new ideas. So for those of you who ended up with more washi tape than you intended, you might want to check out my Craft with Washi Tape pinterest board. Have a look and do let me know if you find any other great ideas.
