Make Your Own Washi Tape Tutorial

Washi tape has spread like wild fire.  Seems like more and more companies are coming out with decorative tape.  How would you like  to make your own Washi tape?  You can choose whatever design and ink color you want!!  The only thing is that it's permanent, not removable like the true Washi tape....still, if you're using it on a card, it works.

What you need:

Plain white tissue paper
Double sided tape (I used the 1 1/2 inch Scor Tape)
Stamp of your choice
Ink of your choice

I used the a|s Sweetheart Background and Grapefruit Ink.

 Cut a strip of tape and adhere to a piece of tissue paper.

Flip the piece over and stamp.

Cut the piece out (hint: flip it over to the unstamped side to cut along the edges of the tape).

You can cut the "washi tape" to whatever size you want.  I kept mine at the 1 1/2 inch.

Peel off the backing and adhere to card.  Decorate as you wish.  Done!!!  Easy Peasy.

Hope you liked this tutorial.

Oh.....I found these at Michaels today.  I love the one a|s has in the catalog, but red is one of my favorite colors!!!  With a 40% off coupon, I got it for less than $9. 

Here's a picture of the a|s enamel marker bin.

Have a great weekend!!!
