  1. thank you! i've almost run out of switch plates, i think i might go through withdrawals...

  2. I absolutely adore these! But I'm currently renting.. is the tape very difficult to remove once on?

  3. hi lisa! washi tape is absolutely NOT difficult to remove -- the tackiness is very similar to masking tape. it is easily repositionable if you make a mistake and leaves no marks when you remove it from your object.

    good luck and i'd love to see what you create!!

  4. I want to try this - love it - but can I get the washi tape at a local store or would it have to be ordered? Thanks!

    1. i usually order my washi tape from etsy -- there's toooons on etsy. but, someone told me recently that washi tape is sold at michael's now as well! good luck, i"d love to see how your switchplates turm out!
