    This was such a fun class. I put my bouquet in a tiny bottle in my kitchen window. Thank you, Cathe!

    I have been using washi tape at school. My beginning band students get to mark their progress on their practice charts with it. It is so fun and colorful!

  7. #7 - Cindy G. says:

    I have a secret washi tape addiction, and I love to buy coordinated rolls when I see them. But, I have only used a smidgen for one project! So, a book of washi-specific ideas would be fabulous!

  8. #8 - Laure Janus says:

    My name is Laure and I’m a washi tape-a-holic. I’ve lost track trying to count the rolls currently in my possession. I would LOVE to win Jenny’s new book so I can learn some new project ideas – thanks for the chance to win!

  9. #9 - Helen Stevens says:

    The ends of my washi tape never want to stick properly so I always need to snip an end off or affix with another adhesive. Advice? Perhaps it is in the book!

  10. #10 - Lori H says:

    I’ve just recently gone on a washi tape buying spree, so this book would come in very handy!

  36. #36 - Maureen says:

    Washi tape addicted as I cannot get enough of the patterns. I love those flowers and wished I lived closer to take a workshop with you.

    Hi there – I was hesitant to use washi tape at first, but when I tried it for creating and decorating mini albums, I fell in love. Would love to win your book!!!.

  44. #44 - Stacy Saman says:

    I love Washi tape! I use it to decorate just about everything, but it would be super cool to know that you can use it to make CRAFTS!! I have spent too much money on Washi tape (it’s expensive) to afford the book that would help me actually use the stuff for other things. Also, would love to know where I can order unusual patterned Washi tape (or actually, my bank account says ‘no, don’t answer that’, while my addiction says, YES!)

  45. #45 - Tenley Johnson says:

    So much beautiful tape, so little time!

  46. #46 - Jessica W says:
