Why People Lose Their Washi Tape

If you wake up one morning and find that some of your washi tape is missing, don’t be quick to blame your little sister. Though little themselves, something else is behind the sneakiness: the little looter.

Get one for free when you order this month πŸ™‚

Usually white in color, they also vary to match the shades of your bedroom walls for camouflage effect, which is nonetheless made ineffective by the high-contrast color of the masks they all wear to hide the fact that they all look the same. Long arms and opposable thumbs to easily grab objects. Four nimble legs for maximum getaway acceleration.

They watch you do your crafty projects, so they know which washi tape designs are your favorite and make sure to take those first. They get excited the most when stealing those colorful tapes, but sometimes they also pilfer other small items such as erasers, nail clippers, and ballpen caps.

You can relax though, because what they run off with is normally returned. After all, all they’re really after is just the thrill of sneaking about and not getting caught. In cases when the thing they took can’t be returned for some reason, they are overcome with guilt and are moved to repay you in some way, usually in the form of coins pushed into pant pockets.

The best defense against little looters is to place all washi tape inside containers and place a heavy weight on top to prevent them from opening it.

Everyone will get a little looter in their package for the month of February! We’ll be putting the postcard together with all Hey Kessy orders this month.

The illustration is done by talented graphic designer and illustrator, Paul Imbong.
