Washi Tapes Originally Designed by Hey Kessy!

When In Manila, crafters and non-crafters have been going crazy over the washi tape designs that keep popping out in the market. I, myself, cannot choose easily when hundreds of designs are laid in front of me. If you are wondering where can you see these washi tapes in actual, Moonleaf Tea Shop in Maginhawa, Quezon City has launched their craft corner where products of Filipino crafters are sold. Included in the items are bracelets, tarp wallets, handmade crafts by Abbey Sy, Hey Kessy items and the newest addition, washi tapes originally designed by Hey Kessy!

What are washi tapes anyway? Washi tapes originated in Japan. They are like masking tape, but very, very pretty ones! It comes in patterns and designs that will surely trigger the creativity in you!

Last Sunday, We attended the launch of the FIRST originally designed washi tapes by Hey Kessy. The three designs were made by their resident graphic designer and illustrator, Paul Imbong. This exclusive line of washi tapes will be their first collection which includes Beep jeep, Hoy hoy hoy and Too cute designs. More to come soon as Hey Kessy collaborates with other Filipino artists, designers and crafters!

After the launch, we proceeded to making our own crafts. And because Hey Kessy aims to let people know how washi tapes can be useful in crafts, she organized a small craft workshops for us! We made our own 3D monograms using washi tapes, papers and baker’s twine.

I really had a hard time on deciding what design to do, but for the other participants, I think they already had their designs planned!
