They are so pretty, delicate, and a little sticky- it’s washi tape of course. Love, love, love washi! I think I have succumbed to yet another paper crafting addiction oh my! Here is a festive tag I made using everything washi- check out the fun background, banner/pleats/border, and pretty rosettes/flowers.
Create washi borders with your punches:
Apply the tape slightly away from the paper edge to preserve as much tape width after punching. You can keep the pretty washi border punched out as is or gently peel away and offset the tape to create a double border effect.
Use washi with ribbon for pretty pleats:
Tape washi halfway onto ribbon. The sticky washi tape on the top half makes it easy to adhere to paper leaving the pliable ribbon on the bottom for pretty pleats. Apply more washi to cover the top of the ribbon pleats.
Use washi to jazz up ribbon flowers and rosettes:
Make pretty washi centres in your ribbon flower. Apply washi to satin ribbon. Gather and pleat to create a beautiful soft flower.
Diecut the pleated rosette first and then apply a straight line of washi across the length. Keep the pleat at the beginning/end of the rosette free of washi as you need to place strong adhesive on these ends to secure the rosette together. I love how the washi creates a beautiful centre in the rosette.
Supplies: Hambly washi tape, Sizzix diecut, EK success border punch
I hope this gives you a few more ideas on fun ways to use up you washi tape collection. Enjoy!
