CLOSED: Washi Tapes Giveaway by Posh Tykes

- This giveaway is now CLOSED -


While I was on vacation, I was contacted by Jo, the mommy behind the Posh Tykes online shop* based here in the Philippines. 


She started selling Washi Tapes here and was surprised with how popular they are. Her initial inventory sold out within 10 days of being posted on her shop.  To celebrate the success of her business, she generously offered to give away 3 rolls of Washi tapes to 2 Of Pinks and Fairy Tales readers!

Not sure what Washi Tapes are? Washi Tapes are decorative masking tapes that originated in Japan.  It's like regular sticky tape, translucent, and comes in plain colors or decorative patterns.
Washi tapes can be used for scrapbooking or other craft projects. Here are some beautiful projects I found online.

Wedding-themed projects from Martha Stewart

You can also make beautiful cards.

Are you excited yet? 

This giveaway is open to EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE!

To join:

STEP 1: Visit Posh Tykes online shop to check out the beautiful designs available.
STEP 2: Come back here and leave a comment telling me how you plan to use your Washi Tapes in case you win. Please do not forget to include your email address in your comment!

Only one entry per person. 

For example:
I will use Washi Tapes to turn my plain bottles into beautiful vases. My email address is ofpinksandfairytales at gmail dot com.

Two winners will be drawn on Friday, January 13th, 5PM my time (in the Philippines) via Random.org. I will contact the winners after the draw and endorse them to Jo of Posh Tykes so they can choose their prizes and finalize shipping details. 

Note to international winners (if any winner will be from outside the Philippines): shipping of your prizes will be done via postal service and will take 2-3 weeks. Shipping within the Philippines will take 1-2 days.

So let's get started! Comment away!

*The Posh Tykes online shop is hosted in Multiply. In the Philippines, Multiply is the more popular site to start an online shop.

I would use washi tapes in my cards, and to decorate all my upcycled home projects like jars, cans, boxes,etc. Oh and packages and mixed media projects...basically I'd put it on everything but the dog.

Paula @ The Tween And Me said...

Oh, the decision won't be what we use the Washi tapes for.... it will be what we *won't* use them for!! What a beautiful and creative item. I think Ariel, my tween, would love to make cards with them. I think making some of those candle holder you pictured would be delightful. Truly, the options would be endless and I could see so many creative applications for these beautiful tapes!!

Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great giveaway!
