Washi Tape Crafts for Kids

Craft with Washi tape this Sunday, Aug. 17 at 2:00 at the Takoma Park Maryland Library (101 Philadelphia Ave.)

This program is intended for children ages 8 and up.

Washi tape is a beautiful decorative Japanese paper tape and I have a variety of interesting patterns. Crafts range from cards, upcycling Altoids tins, decorating wooden peg dolls, DIY "manicures" and whatever else you can think of!
