Washi Tape

I guess you guys have heard of, seen or already in Love with Washi tape. CTMH holiday book has a new 3 pack of Washi Tape "Sparkle & Shine" Washi Tape is so much fun & easy to use. You can use it to make cards, boarders for pictures, accents on your scrapbook pages, to secure your pictures to a page and many more that I haven't thought of yet. Washi is like a paper tape and you can easily remove it without tearing your paper.  But you should know me by now....if the Washi Tape you have on hand does not match what you are working on or not the color you want you can make your own.  Here's a picture of some I made.

On this sheet, I used holiday tissue paper and double sided tape (Scotch).  All I did was take small pieces of the tissue paper and put down a strip of double sided tape. (you need the kind that has the protective strip on one side, unless you are using it right away.) After that you trim the tape of any extra tissue paper.  You can see through the tape so it takes on the colors of the paper you put it on. Here I used a white index card, so you could see the designs. This is great for wrapping gifts, making tags, cards or holiday scrapbook pages.
On this one I used stamps & ink.  So can make any color or design you want.  I just stamped on white tissue paper. Background stamps work well, words, most any stamp that is kind of full.  You could also use any solid colored tissue paper,  I think the craft color tissue paper would be great.  Give this a try and see what you can create.  Be Curious! As before feel free to post your creations in the comments section below.  Here is a simple card I made using the Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape from CTMH.  If you want to try Washi Tape you can find it Here 

This card I made with Washi Tape. The Shine & Sparkle paper pack, the Santa Clause stamp set, the SOM Scandinavian Wishes (inside greeting), bakers twine, sparkles colored with the holiday red marker. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  Very quick & easy. I put Washi Tape under the punched out snowflakes and my granddaughter covered some white cardstock with the Washi Tape and punched out some snowflakes.  I added them to the card using foam dots. "Celebrate the Season" is the trim on the 12 x 12 paper, I just cut it out & added it to the card.  I stamped the sentiment with Holiday Red ink, added the bakers twine and the sparkles.  

On the inside of the card, I added some Washi Tape along the bottom, a snowflake my granddaughter punched out and the sentiment.

Well I must stop with the FUN stuff and do the necessary stuff; laundry, house grandkids today) wash dishes ;(    I'd rather be playing.  Speaking of grandkids this is my granddaughter that helped me make this card.  She is beautiful and my helper. Cutest little red riding hood you've ever seen!

Try some Washi Tape.  Be Curious!
