It’s always washi tape that goes wandering if we leave it out on our office craft desk – it seems nobody can get enough of this cool paper tape. With that in mind, this issue comes with a massive washi library pack (p6), with more than 370 different stickers, and a complementary stamp set, too! The treats don’t stop there – take a look at the stunning moveable cards made with Angela Poole’s new Flutterings dies (p18). You’ll find more moving cards and 3D finishes in our safari printables project (p8), and our moving pop-up box masterclass (p29). May your craft desks be busy and your washi stash intact. Happy crafting!…
